Executive Summary:

Companies preparing for a CPM project to upgrade their FP&A, often confront the obstacle of an incomplete or poorly built data foundation. Data quality issues and information siloes are common, data transformations may be difficult, and manual processes for accumulating information typically need to be replaced. Without a proper data foundation, different business units may disagree on which version of the truth is the correct one, and the organization will struggle to agree on performance outcomes and metrics. Lack of trust in the numbers will hinder decision-making.
