What is xP&A?

Extended planning and analysis—or xP&A, as Gartner so neatly christened it—is the wave of democratizing a traditional process controlled by finance and accounting (FP&A) across all departments in the organization.

xP&A includes analytics, forecasting, planning, sales, operations, and even human resources monitoring processes. Its primary purpose is to break down informational silos and connect people, processes, and departments with strategic insights in real-time.
