Finance Analytics

Finance analytics provide insight into the financial performance of an organization. Financial analytic applications digest volumes of finance and accounting data, typically based on historical enterprise financial transactions, to discover and understand patterns. These patterns enable organizations to predict and improve business performance and to guide decision making. Finance analytics are typically coupled with statistical analysis, forecasting and modeling, but tend to be based on modeling that includes extensive computation.
