The finance function has the opportunity to transform by leveraging emerging technologies. Finance is increasingly expected to serve as a true business partner, not a back-office department focused on transactional processing and historical reporting. The finance function is being tasked with providing predictive and prescriptive insights to drive optimal business performance and real-time decision-making.

Leading finance organizations have developed an agenda to deal with the unknown. And with a clear line of sight to the impact of change on both the business model and the operating model, the CFO has the chance to turn uncertainties into opportunities for competitive advantage and growth.
