Analytics for Accounting

Whether descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, or prescriptive, big data analytics is becoming a critical skill for accountants to deliver actionable insights in real-time. This session discusses how analytics links financial statement data and non-financial metrics as drivers of financial performance and further, how accountants use data to help businesses forecast future financial scenarios, optimise operations and tweak strategy for sustainability. This is a can’t-miss session as accountants are increasingly expected to add value and problem-solve by using data science.
