made to the legal, accounting and UK Listing Authority’s
requirements that accounts have to meet, but this is done
in the context of what interesting information to look out
for, rather than to show how a set of accounts should be
We decided to write this book when we discovered that a majority of the companies
we talked to had dysfunctional and low-value added processes for budgeting, fore-
casting, and financial reporting. And, as financial executives come and go, typically

Fifteen years ago, in January 1997, our company, Panorama Software, was acquired by Microsoft
during its entry into the business intelligence space. That was a long time ago. In fact, it was so long
ago, I’m not sure that business intelligence was even called BI. Back then our mission and strategy
were simple, accompanied by the short but effective slogan “OLAP for the masses.” For the most
