Top Trend in Strategic Financial Management: xP&A

As strategic financial management experts, we also observe the industry meticulously in order to identify trends as quickly as possible and advise our clients accordingly. According to Gartner the trend that is moving finance the most at the moment is extended planning and analytics (xP&A).

What is xP&A?

Coined by Gartner in 2020, the term xP&A describes the extension of the best financial planning and analytics (FP&A) concepts to areas of the business other than finance, including supply chain management, marketing, human resources, sales and information technology. The goal is to break up silos and instead enable synchronized collaboration across the entire enterprise. 

How will xP&A change finance?

Gartner predicts that by 2024, 70 % of new FP&A projects will then be xP&A projects instead – extending in scope as well as business areas involved. For this expansion of FP&A capabilities to work in the future, the relevant processes must already be established and well-run today. This emphasizes the great importance and influence of the finance department for business success of tomorrow. 

What are the benefits of xP&A?

Extended planning and analysis offer organizations 5 key benefits: 

  1. Visibility across the entire business – in real time: Breaking up silos helps enterprises create a single view of plans and performance. In addition to other reporting and analysis tools, this view will enable CEOs to understand the impact of decisions on the entire organization or each department individually. 
  2. Consistent information for decision-making: When important data is scattered in several places within the IT infrastructure of a company, chances are that decision-making is difficult due to conflicting versions of the truth. A single source of truth enables planners to work with consistent information. 
  3. Synchronized business: By sharing platform and methodology, xP&A encourages collaboration by emphasizing the impact one department’s work has on another. Whether it’s strategic, financial, or operational plans – through synchronization, the whole enterprise is in line and works toward a common goal.
  4. Increased agility: With xP&A, business leaders are fully equipped to identify new opportunities, navigate risks and maximize efficiency on the fly – because their data-based insights let them understand what’s happening in their business and the world around it within seconds.
  5. Automated planning: xP&A makes it easy to continuously update business plans based on current events and unsteady conditions. When a modification has to be made to one plan, all associated plans are automatically updated. This minimizes errors due to manual transmission of data and keeps insights up to date, even in turbulent times. 

Gartner’s Prediction on xP&A

By 2024, 70% of new FP&A projects will become extended planning and analysis (xP&A) projects, extending their scope beyond finance into other areas of the business.
