Budgeting, planning and forecasting gets an upgrade

Sponsored by SearchFinancialApplications

Budgeting, planning and forecasting is a process that companies want to be sure to get right. For some, that means updating their software and possibly investing in a cloud option. In this three-part handbook, learn about the upgrades companies are making, what to consider before a change is made and the processes that should be in place no matter what.

First up, reporter Dan Ring profiles one company, Intel Security, that has made the move to cloud budgeting, planning and forecasting software. Ring also gets insight from analysts on why larger companies -- which have lagged behind smaller companies in this area -- are switching to the cloud and the challenges they face when doing so. Second, freelancer Linda Rosencrance talks to users and experts about knowing when to quit Excel and adopt financial planning software. Third, consultant Barry Wilderman gives advice on best practices when using any type of budgeting, planning and forecasting software.
