Executive Summary:

Vendors of corporate performance management (CPM) software have begun to recognize the importance of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities in their products. Nearly all vendors have some AI-based features today, or under development for an upcoming release, but only a select handful have emphasized AI as a strategic, fundamental component. Customers have started to request AI in CPM systems, particularly for its value in predictive analytics and forecasting – which many in Finance already have experience using that predates the use of AI in this area. This white paper focuses on the role of AI in budgeting but some of the discussion is applicable to other areas of CPM and Finance as well. Due to its “high volume, accurate historical records, and quantitative nature”, Finance is well-suited for artificial intelligence.
