CFOs and Controllers often struggle with identifying the key revenue drivers and discovering what influences them. Macroeconomic data is not applied on the financial data and the KPIs of companies. This might results in the inability to accurately forecast Profit and Loss.
The lack of a data-driven approach can also lead to problems with fraud detection and prevention. Misstatements in accounting are also often discovered too late, e.g. during an external audit.
