Modern finance in the digital age has enabled the collection of a hyper-abundance of data—making the priority for businesses to collect, understand, and use that information to make informed decisions. Finding a way to effectively organize information will enable businesses to focus on innovation instead of operations. Financial leaders today need to steer the digital organization of data by applying simplification, standardization, centralization, and automation to successfully drive transformative change.
