Leading analyst and advisory firm, Gartner, has named decision-making platform provider BOARD International as a Visionary in both its 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions & Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Close Solutions.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions states that “financial planning and analysis solutions support the office of finance’s efforts to manage financial planning and budgeting as well as financial modeling and performance reporting.” BOARD was positioned in the visionaries quadrant.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Close states that “financial close solutions help the office of finance manage the financial close and apply appropriate controls throughout the accounting cycle.” BOARD International was positioned in the Visionaries quadrant and improved its overall position compared to the previous report.
“Organizations are increasingly seeing the benefits of moving from disjointed point solutions to a more centralised approach,” said Giovanni Grossi, CEO of BOARD.
“Through unified decision-making platforms, management teams can empower employees to analyze, simulate and plan centrally, using up-to-date information to deliver informed decisions. This is BOARD’s vision and I feel it is reflected in our positioning within the quadrants.”
