Episode Description

The buzz: The CFO. The concept of the strategic CFO – responsible for more than just numbers – is not new. But now there's a new technology-driven dynamic in Finance, a nexus of powerful forces driven by in-memory, cloud, mobile, and social. It's not only changing how CFOs can operate, it also gives them the potential to re-imagine the processes underpinning the Finance function, as well as their role as information steward and advisor to the business. How exactly is this impacting the way CFOs are evolving the Finance function and their role within the business? The experts speak. John Steele, Deloitte: “Finance is either the center of the universe or the bottom of the hill – either way all roads lead there.” David Dixon, TruQua: “Information is the oil of the 21st century, and analytics is the combustion engine” (Peter Sondergaard). Henner Schliebs, SAP: “He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander” (Aristotle). Join us for The Strategic CFO: Re-Imagining Finance.
