FP&A is a crucial component of the CFO’s job, but it is often
frustratingly ineffective. As a result, many organisations use the data
produced by finance only for compliance; their strategic decision-making
remains uninfluenced by it. With the global economic outlook still
fragile and new business opportunities slowly emerging, senior
management need a clear picture of the available financial resources and
where to invest them. Underpinning these decisions with the reliable
data generated by FP&A provides a pivotal input to their success.

15.45-16.15      Coffee break

16.15-17.00      The case of Brussels Airlines- Taking Planning & Budgeting to the Cloud

Brussels Airlines, the Belgian
airline offering the widest choice of
flights to and from its base at Brussels Airport, selected Anaplan in Q2 of 2014 to boost its financial planning and analysis.
Brussels Airlines, which experienced record passenger growth selected Anaplan over legacy software vendors to replace its
spreadsheet-based FP&A processes.

Anaplan’s cloud-based, in-memory platform Brussels Airlines can get
insights on product planning and allocation, cost planning, and capital
expenditures. The airline leverages Anaplan to determine passenger
revenue allocation to flight numbers in real-time. The company
can also more accurately forecast future demand, and adjust plans on the
fly to account for personnel costs and functional costs. In this session we will learn about the drivers of the decision and the results of the successful project, which is being used for Budgets 2015, as we speak.
