      Presentation:

      How to drive change with finance and risk analytics

      This presentation will focus on the creation of a finance or a risk-based analytics program that can help support both finance initiatives as well as enterprise-risk initiatives and the internal audit function.

      • An overview of data analytics, data visualization and current hot topics
      • How to implement an analytics program for finance or risk-based analysis
      • Review of advanced topics such as automated machine learning and natural language generation
      • Examples of risk-based and financial analytics and visualizations
      • How the company develops quality visuals and dashboards

      Speaker 2:

      Matt Illuzzi, Principal and Chief Finance Officer @ icimo

      A highly analytical and forward-thinker by nature, Matt has primed clients for operational and financial success for over 20 years. An entrepreneur at heart, Matt believes people achieve optimal success when doing what they love. In continuing to grow icimo into a successful company, he’s doing just that.

      Presentation:

      Most finance professionals can easily answer basic questions from one business system—for example: How many hours have we billed this month? That’s easy. But answering questions that require combining data together from multiple systems—like hours worked vs. contracted—can be notoriously challenging.

       

      Matt Illuzzi will share how his company, icimo, approaches the “holy grail” of financial reporting: Pulling information together data to see real-time performance, getting deeper business insights, and performing fewer manual, repetitive tasks. He’ll cover:

       

      • Icimo’s process for bringing its data together
      • How the company develops quality visuals and dashboards
      • Demos of some of Icimo’s internal dashboards.
