“We feel honored for our inclusion in this latest Gartner Market Guide for xP&A which in our opinion reflects the transformational value of Board’s Intelligent Planning approach for enterprises across strategy, finance and operations,” said Marco Limena, CEO of Board International. “Enterprises are increasingly aware of the importance of extended planning beyond finance into other vital enterprise planning domains including workforce, sales, and the supply chain.”
The latest Market Guide highlights how “COVID-19, supply chain disruptions and worldwide inflation have amplified the notion of business disruption as the new normal. Pivoting, course correcting and transforming are recognized as near-daily routines. The span of business predictability has become shorter — driving organizations to become more agile when responding to new market opportunities and threats.”
“Organizations using xP&A for enterprise planning — by connecting and linking corporate financial plans to operational planners — can improve their ability to navigate periods of continuous business disruption,” states the Market Guide. "Modern business initiatives seeking to establish or shift to digital business models amid these disruptions require collaborative, connected and agile planning.”
