Visit Website View Our Posts

Join Microsoft and Dozens of Partners in the Largest deFacto 5K Ever! Experience a Whole New World of Cloud-Based Financial Analytics with deFacto 3.0! It’s All Happening at Booth 1521!

As Convergence 2015 approaches, there’s a lot to be excited about at this year’s event, on both a collegial and business level.

On the business side, major milestones were reached in the realm of business analytics this year as the combined power of business intelligence, performance management, and predictive analytics that are unified in the deFacto solution unleashed an entirely new category of business analytics called “financial analytics.” Together with advances like in-memory computing, these new systems are enabling planning and forecasting at a level of power and scalability that was not previously possible.

That these breakthroughs usher in significant new capabilities was reflected by analysts’ recognition of the innovations deFacto has brought to the market.  TEC, for example, asserted that deFacto was “a leap ahead of its peers” and was redefining the CPM market and providing “an enterprise performance management solution for the future." BPM Partners named deFacto Global as a Best New Vendor of 2014, with CEO Craig Schiff citing the “all-around completeness and capability of deFacto’s solution.”

Gartner, too, noted that deFacto “does what BI tools can’t” and called the deFacto platform a “mission-critical tool for new CFO.”

In addition to being smarter and more powerful, the deFacto platform is now more versatile. At Convergence we will be showing a new web interface with features that make it easy for business managers to perform financial analytics on any device–mobile, tablet or computer.

The innovations in the deFacto platform are explained in greater detail in a new whitepaper entitled “The New World of Financial Analytics,” which is available on request.
