Industry Veterans Strengthen Clarity

Lefebvre is a graduate of the Paris-Sorbonne University and his work experience includes management positions at SAS, Microstrategy, Outlooksoft/SAP and Microsoft. Lefebvre's Microsoft experience is especially useful, as Clarity's solutions work seamlessly with Microsoft products and technologies.

The cost savings and management process improvements that are delivered by CPM applications are emerging as 'quick wins' for European financial departments. I'm eager to highlight the many features of Clarity 6, including its ability to support rolling forecasts, an approach that serves CFOs well in these rapidly changing times, said Lefebvre. Clarity FSR has also found a receptive audience at publicly-held European firms, given its ability to manage the external reporting process, he added.

Li Ming is a graduate of Paris IX Dauphine University. His work experience includes Ericsson, Societe Generale, and Comshare - where he supported Essbase in France - and ShowCase as Technical Director for Western Europe. Most recently Li Ming was co-founder and partner at Polarys , a consulting company specializing in Business Intelligence (BI) solutions.
