Many organizations depend on individual departments, and on software tools that are specific to these departments, to report on key information such as sales and revenue. When organizations focus on operational metrics in isolation from financial metrics, they're at risk of more than disseminating incomplete information within their financial reports. They're also at risk of relying on incomplete, conflicting and inaccurate information as they make decisions that impact their future.
