Finance departments have been slow to adopt cloud solutions, but its transformative impact can no longer be ignored especially given that today’s CFOs have a lot on their minds. Common themes include:
• Cost efficiency
• Enabling a mobile workforce
• Providing increasing data insight
• How to best support product development and innovation
• Providing agility to evolve to new business models
• Addressing increasing compliance requirements
At the same time as navigating these themes, many CFOs are looking to help their businesses expand. Gone are the days where finance chiefs were confined to simple accounting functions; today’s CFO are widely seen as strategic partners (‘Chief Future Officers’) to the general business, and are expected to participate actively in its transformation.
