Sessions provide automation use cases, leading practices, and demonstrations of relevant existing and emerging technologies, ranging from ETL and analytical tools to cloud and cognitive technologies; challenges and opportunities to the tax function in the face of disruptive technologies; and the role of data strategy in tech-transformation strategy – to name just a few.  Our sessions showcase the key technologies and automation tools transforming the tax functions of today and look ahead to disruptive technologies with growing relevance to the tax operations of the future.
Day 3 – We have added PwC’s Analytics & Automation Academy to our seminar!  This optional, free 3rd day of intensive, hands-on training, will allow seminar attendees to practice on and gain greater proficiency with key automation and data visualization tools, as well as work on generic tax use cases.  PwC instructors will provide one-on-one instructor and assistance (Optional 3rd day is only available to registrants of Days 1-2).  Program will end at Noon.
