Your CFO’s new focus? Digitally reinventing the company

FINANCE EXECUTIVES LIKE
YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THEM BEFORE

Digital is rapidly changing how companies operate, adopt tech and manage risk. Organizations must have the right leadership and digital tools to seize and analyze meaningful data that optimizes process and operations, enables enterprise innovation, and unlocks new value in a disruptive world.

Who better to decode the new than the company’s Chief Financial Officer—increasingly the key executive approving the investments required to transform the organization to where it needs to be in the future?

WHY IT MATTERS

The role of the Chief Financial Officer is evolving, with many spending less time on traditional Finance function activities that are now being automated. In fact, 77 percent of Chief Financial Officers surveyed agree that their role is expanding to oversee the digital reinvention of their enterprise.


Here’s what they’re doing:

Drive efficiency through digital (57%)
Lead business-wide transformation (55%)
Explore areas of new value in the enterprise and wider ecosystem (56%/59%)
Reinvent how disruptive technologies could benefit the business (50%)

While Chief Financial Officers welcome the new demands of their expanded role, they face challenges in mastering these responsibilities. From tasks like identifying new areas of digital value to exploring disruptive technologies, less than 50 percent of Chief Financial Officers are experiencing success.

Meanwhile, Chief Financial Officers continue to require a more efficient and effective Finance function that can serve the needs of the business with greater agility. Only by harnessing new technologies, investing in talent, and improving risk and compliance objectives, can they increase enterprise value and ensure measurable outcomes.
