Nothing stands still, technology evolves, new standards are introduced, expectations rise. CFO’s face a perpetual challenge to take advantage of the technology, ensure compliance and continue to achieve financial competencies. Colin Sampson, SVP and former regional CFO, discusses this in his latest blog. One of six essential areas Sampson identifies to support meaningful change is leveraging technology. New technology solutions can help address decision making, execution, and reporting for finance and accounting in the digital age. Another key area Sampson highlights is people, as they are fundamental to the success of any transformation.
We can all see that the world is becoming more digital and connected which affects all business functions. Examples of digitalization and transformation can be found in all industries and processes. So it makes sense that finance should be at the heart of the digital transformation. Billing, payments, reports must all be real time. Cycle times gets faster in a digital economy and finance must keep up, and even get ahead of the curve.
