As business models evolve and value-creation strategies change, today's finance organizations are no longer content to simply contain costs and keep score. Modern CFOs are taking the lead in business transformation and growth strategies.

The Game-Changing Role of Finance
Where do you stand in the shift from classic to modern finance?

Explore what it means to be a modern finance organization and how technology is enabling finance teams to have a stronger impact on enterprise strategy and growth.

Key research findings:

  • Modern CFOs are technology evangelists. Over two-thirds of respondents recognize that the CFO is a leading advocate for the use of advanced analytics and modern mobile, social, and cloud technologies.
  • Today, modern finance delivers insight and value to the rest of the business. Forward-looking CFOs are taking advantage of new data analysis tools and techniques to deliver more value and even develop entirely new revenue streams.
  • Modern finance acts as a service-oriented, strategic business partner. New technologies are playing a vital role in this shift, with modern finance teams using the latest social, mobile, and collaboration tools.
