The business world is awash with buzzwords where many are to do with A.I. and the use of data. It can seem overwhelming at times as we navigate through the noise to find out what is important and what is just a rebranding of last year’s ideas. In the process of either being enthralled or intimated by these trends, we can often lose sight of the fundamental question: “How do I drive business value from this?” and “Where do I start…without spending too much money?”.

Background:

The Finance Process Manager (FPM) component of the eFinancials v5.0 upgrade was installed and tested at v2.4.0.11 during the FIN118 project. Advanced Computer Software Group (the eFinancials supplier) then released FPM v2.4.0.14, which would address FPM penetration testing issues (see below), too close to the agreed deployment to production period (November 2018) for the other tested components of the eFinancials Upgrade.  It was therefore decided at that time, to delay production deployment of the FPM module until after the FIN118 project.
