Formula One World Champion Mika Häkkinen on how to lead at speed

With top speeds over 200 mph and pit stops under 3 seconds, the world of Formula One racing hinges on accuracy and agility. It’s no surprise, then, that Mika Häkkinen, two-time Formula One World Champion, knows exactly how crucial it is to gain the competitive advantage and lead at speed by leveraging data and operational signals.

Register now to hear an exclusive interview with him on 21 September.

Like Formula One racers, Finance organisations are increasingly dependent on technology to achieve maximum results. To lead at speed, Finance teams rely on corporate performance management (CPM) technology to do exactly what the driver needs at exactly the right moment. In other words, CPM should do exactly what Finance teams need – exactly when they need it.During crisis situations, Finance teams can and must help drive their organisation forward by sharing critical insights, collaborating with strategic business partners and leading planning processes that align financial goals with detailed operational plans. It’s therefore critical for teams to find the right platform with the financial intelligence to model unique lines of business, perform various scenarios and provide the scale Finance leaders need to prioritise key decisions.

OneStream (see Figure 1) provides a market-leading Intelligent Finance Platform that reduces the complexity of financial operations. OneStream unleashes the power of finance by unifying CPM processes – such as financial data quality, planning, financial close & consolidation, reporting and advanced analytics – through a single, extensible solution. Through that solution, we empower the enterprise with financial and operational insights to support faster and more informed decision-making. All in a platform designed to continually evolve and scale with your organisation.

To proactively respond – rather than react – to unexpected market changes as they arise.

That’s why over 500 mid-sized to large enterprises around the world and across industries are using OneStream for planning, financial close & consolidation, reporting and analytics. In fact, 70% of OneStream customers replaced multiple legacy applications – such as Oracle Hyperion, SAP BPC and IBM Cognos – to modernise the Finance function within their organisations.
