Enough of complicated spreadsheets – get to know innovative ways of financial modelling - Presentations

AmCham Business & Finance committee organized a seminar for CFOs/Finance Controller/GMs/Owners of companies providing information about two fast growing innovative alternatives to spreadsheets.

The growth of errors in spreadsheets and the danger of misleading information delivered to decision makers is causing corporations significant problems. Spreadsheets, which are a single user tool, are not scaleable in collaborative corporate decision making. This workshop gave us an opportunity to see two fast growing innovative alternatives that elegantly address spreadsheet inefficiencies.

The future of financial modelling is evolving to eliminate the use of spreadsheets in the decision making process.

Speakers:

  • Jan Can and Marek Susta of Proverbs
  • Michael Stimson and Jaroslav Malach of Gide International Limited

Case study:

  • Head of Controlling from Dalkia Industries will present his case on using such a model to replace spreadsheets.
  • Ministry of defense representative will speak about implementation of complex models in public sector
