award winnerThis article will recap all of the details from Focus 2017, the 5th annual user conference for BI360 customers and partners.

And just like that, Focus 2017 has come and gone. For the planning committee at Solver, charged with the planning and execution of the 5th annual user conference for the community of BI360 customers and partners, it is bittersweet. To me, the best conferences can seem like summer camp for adult professionals, as you step out of your routine and your life to take up residence at a specific locale that is an all-inclusive on learning new skill sets, making new connections, and having fun. And Focus never disappoints in the context of this analogy. This is the fourth year I have attended the event, and it was such a joy to see familiar faces and share memories from past years with new faces at the ample networking opportunities. This blog entry will recap the highlights from this year’s Focus event.

This article will discuss leveraging corporate performance management (CPM) solutions as a foundation for an enterprise technology cloud roadmap.
I find myself thinking about cloud technology all the time these days. And this is particularly peculiar when I zoom out and think about how I was an English major in college. However, cloud is permeating the culture – both popular and business – and I can’t help but think about how it is changing the way we store, manage, and leverage data. I have even seen memes on social media that make fun of the fact that we keep so many pictures – “for what?” is the punchline. The answer is because we can, and our massive and growing amount of data doesn’t bog down our devices because it is housed in the cloud. Beyond that though, in the business world, cloud as a platform follows the consumer marketplace trend of subscriptions to outsourced services as opposed to buying something outright. This is such a major shift in the business culture, and it creates a more efficient relationship in the context of technology management for both the vendor and the consumer. This article will explore the journey of transitioning reporting and budgeting solutions to the cloud – and suggest a starting place.

Cloud Reporting for IntacctThis article explores the cloud reporting options you have for replacing FRx and Management Reporter.
Sometimes, it’s hard for me to believe that some companies might still be using FRx, as the product was retired by Microsoft – and replaced with Management Reporter (MR) – years ago. But MSDynamicsWorld.com recently hosted a webinar about replacing either, and hundreds of registrants attended. When I zoom out and think about process overhauls or technology replacements that I have been a part of, for the most part, they generally haven’t happened rapidly. Also, we’re all regularly in the trenches of our jobs, in this case producing reports or consolidating company financials for an understanding of company health, so taking the time to research, watch demos, have calls with sales folks, and test the power and viability of a new product can be tough. But as companies look to replace FRx and MR and at the same time prepare for a future move to a cloud ERP system, we’re seeing a lot of finance departments take the first leap by implementing a modern cloud reporting and budgeting solution, proving that a true business improvement momentum is building in the enterprise technology sector. This article will discuss the power of cloud reporting options not only to replace FRx and MR, but also as a strategic catalyst for a bigger picture cloud technology migration.

Budgeting is a vital and important process, regardless of whether you are planning your personal finances or managing your organization’s budgets and forecasts. We have been seeing more and more budgeting tools hosted on the cloud and even though it seems pretty straightforward, most companies are still used to hosting their corporate performance management (CPM) tools on premises. Choosing the right budgeting solution for your industry that integrates smoothly with your Intacct enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can be challenging, but you have powerful options, and it will give you more knowledge about budgeting solutions for your company. In this article, we will explore Cloud-based budgeting and some of those solutions for your Intacct ERP system.

This article will discuss the options you have to achieve modern, rich budgeting in the cloud with Acumatica.
The leading cloud ERPs, like Acumatica and recently acquired Intacct, were ahead of the curve with their platforms – and we’re seeing the rest of the enterprise technologies race to join them in the new normal of cloud solutions. As you hit your stride in Q3, some of us in a new fiscal year, while others are starting the budgeting process for 2018, planning might be a central focus for you and your team. However, Acumatica cloud customers have not had many choices of true cloud budgeting tools in the past, where Adaptive Insights and Host Analytics have been mostly alone in the mid-market. The challenge has been limited integrations to Acumatica at a high cost. Now, new cloud solutions like BI360 Cloud are coming to the marketplace, both with better Acumatica integrations than the older cloud tools, more flexible budget form designers and a price level more suitable for the mid-market. This article will explore what to look for in a modern cloud budgeting solution for Acumatica users.
