ABSTRACT
The article focuses on utilizing an effective business process throughout the organization and how this integration can improve organizational efficiencies and worker productivity. Integrating a company's finances with the rest of a company's business processes calls for a careful and strategic approach. The integration should not cost too much and be low maintenance, allowing operations to continue uninterrupted so that the transition is unnoticeable to customers and partners. A financial integration project is an appropriate context for the insertion of business intelligence and analytics tools.
