Outmaneuver uncertainty and unleash enterprise value
Finance functions are under pressure. Faced with growing disruption, uncertainty, competition and market volatility, CFOs are looking to evolve their organizations to “intelligent finance” and cement their position as a true partner with the rest of the business.
Accenture’s comprehensive approach helps finance functions develop the strategy, roadmap and value case needed to do this. Enabled by new SAP solutions and technologies, it’s focused on unlocking value at every stage of the transformation.
New mindsets for a new era of intelligent finance
The value-led intelligent finance approach calls for a new mindset across the finance function, from the CFO down. Accenture has identified three core themes which, supported by SAP solutions and technologies, enable CFOs to evolve their organization’s thinking and ways of working.
- Intelligent finance. Leading on digital transformation to create intelligent processes, organized around business outcomes, that provide higher-quality insights to the business while freeing workers from routine tasks.
- Harnessing the power of data. Transforming finance into an analytics powerhouse with an integrated platform, built for scale, that ensures the business can maximize the value of its data.
- Future workforce. Developing an adaptive finance workforce, shaped by data-driven insights, that will thrive in the new, while investing in predictive intelligence to improve decision-making and support a more agile way of working.
Accelerate the transformation from vision to value
Accenture’s approach provides comprehensive support across all stages of the transformation journey, from initial vision to realized value:
Define the vision and value. Shape a strategic vision for the future finance function and define the value it will deliver.
Design the future state. Refine the vision and identify the technologies and capabilities needed to power an intelligent finance function.
Create the business case and roadmap. Quantify and track the benefits of each new capability and prioritize them by the value delivered to the business.
