Visibility remains a huge challenge for CFOs in today’s dynamic and ever-evolving business environment.
A study of more than 500 CFOs and senior finance executives conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and commissioned by Coupa, reveals that more than 60 percent of CFOs lack complete visibility into the transactions within their organization. Sound familiar?
Read the report to learn how CFOs are responding in a rapidly evolving world where new technologies, uncertainty, and emerging threats abound. The report also includes five qualitative interviews with the CFOs from Ally Financial, Driftwood Acquisitions and Development, Hays, Micron Technologies, and Zendesk.
Traditional business models are getting shattered by subscriptions. No one can doubt the new services economy is flourishing. The cloud, mobile, digital, connected devices, globalization - all these things have had a hand in reshaping business and powering new business models. Companies today are wrapping service-based business models and while this shift adds new complexities for finance and has major revenue recognition implications, it also gives finance leaders huge opportunities to become bigger value creators for their business and make a stronger impact on enterprise-wide strategies - not financials.
Mention artificial intelligence (AI) to a person on the street, and you'll conjure up Hollywood visions ranging from the humanity-crushing Skynet of the Terminator series to the robot love interests in Her or Ex Machina. Perspectives on the tangible impact of AI similarly range from Elon Musk's declaration of AI as "the greatest risk we face as a civilization" to IBM Chief Science Officer Dr. Guruduth Banavar's belief that "we've never known technology that can have a greater benefit to all of society than artificial intelligence". The reality, especially in the short term, likely lies somewhere between these extremes.

During the course of research efforts in the all-flash array (AFA) space, IDC is still encountering IT executives, particularly CIOs and CFOs, who have an outdated perspective on relevant cost metrics for comparing all-flash solutions with legacy hard disk drive (HDD)–based systems.

While most understand the need for flash performance, there is still a subset that does not view the broader use of flash in the enterprise as cost effective

Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine
Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review,1 less than half of an organisation’s structured data is actively used in making decisions.
The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.2
Talent management has moved to the top of the CEO’s agenda. In a 2012 global survey of CEOs and CFOs by the Economist Intelligence Unit, 53 percent of these leaders said that insufficient talent within their organization could harm them financially over the next 12 months. The number expressing financial concerns rose to 67 percent at organizations with more than 1,500 employees. Moreover, a full 83 percent of HR and business executives believe that talent programs need to be improved, according to Deloitte’s 2012 report Talent Edge 2020. With statistics like these, it’s no wonder there’s more pressure than ever on HR leaders to make the right talent decisions for their organizations and to source the right talent management systems to maximize the value of their workforce.
