German business practice is traditionally characterized by a strict separation of accounting (external accounting) and controlling (internal accounting). Prompted by the need for increases in efficiency and effectiveness in the finance division, however, this separation is increasingly being called into question and closer harmonization between and integration of these two specialist functions is being pursued. 

With the help of KPMG’s Harmonization Accounting and Controlling Business Analytics, you can quickly analyse where you stand in terms of the harmonization of the two specialist functions. The analytics looks at the interfaces between accounting and controlling as well as the relationships and interactions between those and the various dimensions of these elements. 

As a result, you get a tailored positioning of the degree of harmonization between the two specialist functions in your company. This forms the basis for deriving at recommendations for action in order to aline the two functions more closely and thus to generate significant inputs for an efficient and effective finance organization.
