MARY ANN DOWLING:  Good afternoon. Treasury Strategies is very pleased to be part of the Alexander Hamilton Awards, and to moderate the Solution of the Year segment. The finalists here to my left are: Jamie Ballingall, Courtlandt Gates and Ron Chakravarti. Thank you.

I've been asked to give our vision, Treasury Strategies vision, of what treasury is. Treasury is today now the nerve center of a company, and it interfaces with both internal and external stakeholders. Now more than ever, it needs to provide business intelligence and analysis to these stakeholders. Because of changes in regulations and disclosure, treasury is called upon now more than ever to provide essential analysis for decision-making, and to be a payment liquidity and risk adviser to the business.

In order to do this, treasury has to rely on technology. Without technology, without systems to capture the day-to-day activities, applications like Bloomberg, Reuters, or the applications or solutions that these three companies are going to present today, treasury would not be able to provide the initial data or analysis that management needs in a timely fashion.
