Data analytics – how to uncover opportunities in complex spend data

Speaker: Dottie Kennedy Brooks, Emburse

Schedule: 15 Jun 2021 00:00 - 00:00 BST


Reporting and analytics are often used interchangeably. Yet they offer different levels of value to the organisation.

In this session, Dottie Kennedy Brooks, Senior Director of Insight Services at Emburse, will share the most valuable spend reports finance should create, and practical ways to leverage analytics for your competitive advantage.

Having a clear understanding of your spending helps you chart a strategic course forward. And knowing how to efficiently turn spend data into actionable insights will keep you ahead of the rest.
