Game Changing Technologies

Sixty percent of CFOs complain that they don’t know what their CEO wants from them. The role of the CFO is changing. The future is here. It is digital and data driven. In addition to maintaining a traditional role, the CFO now needs to continually innovate to remain relevant to the overall business. Finance’s internal and external “customers” and stakeholders demand greater insights and forward-looking analysis to improve results, understand trends, and inform their decisions. CFO’s must take a more active role, adding value as a truly vital part of the business. This all starts with technology strategy and a roadmap. Technology is a key aspect of change. There will be new data architecture foundations. Traditional, relational data concepts will need to be updated and combined with new sources of unstructured data. Advanced analytical and reporting tools will uncover business value. However, even more importantly, finance will need to add new skills and capabilities. It will need to change its operating model to successfully partner with the rest of the business. The challenge for finance will be to look beyond today and the demands of its current responsibilities and champion the changes necessary to prepare for the new responsibilities of financial leadership in 2025. CFO’s are being asked to do more in terms of volume and scope of services. At the same time an evolution is happening both in the workforce and in the technology that enables the work. Come explore and discuss how the workforce and technologies of the future are changing the way the office of the CFO achieves success.
