About the session:


Elevating business strategy and planning to the cloud
After personally building the interconnected databases that support her company’s incentive programs, National Vision’s Karma Bevelhimer, VP of Financial Operations, faced the challenge of moving to the cloud. This shift would mean better data security, but would the transition to a third-party’s platform mean losing the functionality the program depended on? But through new efficiencies and simplified user experience, functionality, collaboration, and accessibility to data, in fact, improved. Join this co-presentation between Bevelhimer and Anaplan’s Scott Lyon to learn how National Vision’s successful cloud initiative is leading the way for the company’s growth.
