Watch Highlights Of Dialog 2016

Longview empowers organizations competing in the now business reality

The Now reality demands the office of finance provide a strategic foundation to support the entire organization to make the right decision Now, with confidence.

Speakers from leading global companies share in the kNOW best practices and case presentations. In addition, Longview includes interactive, hands-on workshops and panel discussions on current hot topics in the area of Performance Management and Tax Reporting.
