Learn how Microsoft finance professionals use business intelligence




You are invited.

As a finance professional you are immersed in data.  Odds are you spend a lot of your time using old tools and dreaming of a better way to do things.  There is a better way with Microsoft's newly released business intelligence solutions. 


You're invited to hear how Microsoft's Financial Controller for Australia, Simon Hardman and his team use Microsoft's business intelligence tools daily to drive new insights and manage the business.


Simon has over 7 years' experience in Microsoft's Finance group working closely with the business to drive impact through the provision of insightful and engaging analytics business. He will take you through the challenges in managing one of the largest technology companies in Australia and how he overcomes those challenges using Microsoft's tools and processes.


We will also be joined by two of our key Business Intelligence partners Calumo and BizData, who will share their customers' experiences in moving their finance organisations to a modern set of tools that have streamlined their daily processes as well as enabled new insights. 


In this session we'll also show you the latest features available in yet to be released solutions such as Power BI, Power Query and Power View. And how they can empower you to get business insights faster and easier — all through the tools you use every day.


Register today and you'll leave the session with new insights into how to get your finance team performing at the top of their game.
