You just made a sizable investment into a budget preparation system.  So, why does it look and behave like a glorified spreadsheet? Too many organizations have fallen into the trap of replicating their spreadsheet processes in their enterprise budget systems. This session will show how  organizations are using their budget preparation systems in unique and creative ways. Session participants will learn how to focus their systems on process and policy validation rather than on data entry and approval. Representatives of various public-sector organizations, including school districts, will provide their alternatives to the legacy spreadsheet approach.
