CEOs are looking to the finance function to take on a considerably broader and deeper set of strategic responsibilities than ever before.
The finance function must disrupt itself to meet the demands of its customers, including regulators, corporate boards, sales and marketing departments, suppliers, and internal and external auditors. These stakeholders increasingly expect finance to serve as a true business partner, not a back-office department focused on transactional processing and historical reporting. They want the finance function to provide predictive and prescriptive insights to drive optimal business performance and real-time decision making.
