It is an exciting and challenging time for CFOs as their role continues to evolve in a dynamic, everchanging business environment. To keep up with the pace of change and steer their companies toward growth, CFOs need to focus on strategic value and how they can support the broader organization. Driving growth, contending with an ever-evolving regulatory environment, delivering deeper and more-strategic business insights, and staying agile as demands change requires a new kind of finance organization. All of this change will continue to lead CFOs to look inward at their finance systems and evaluate if they can help support business demands today and in the future.
Effectively supporting these new business demands has become more complex and challenging. The increased use of mobile devices alone is driving exponential growth in transaction volumes.
A customer pushes a button on his or her cell phone, for example, to check a bank balance. That single transaction triggers a cascade of transactions as the request is validated and data is accessed, retrieved and then sent back to the customer.
