Certent’s Disclosure Management Regional Summit in Stockholm, Sweden came to a close last Friday, but not without engaging conversations between customers and partners around strategic ways to innovate and improve internal and external reporting processes.

He explained how finance organizations can improve their performance through innovation, focusing especially on financial and management reporting – inspiring the room to become ‘data masters.’
