Agility continues to be a business imperative through this period of economic uncertainty and market disruptions.

In this session we’ll cover:
- How changes in the current business environment are causing companies to rethink legacy capital portfolios
- Planning across different asset types, and automatically apply the right depreciation methodology
- Streamlining capital planning and reporting for the complete life cycle of your assets
- Building sophisticated and in-depth models for more complex capital management requirements
