Episode Description

The buzz: Perfect vision? The Finance function in most organizations has traditionally focused on the past, through expense control, spreadsheet-driven accounting and management reporting. Fast forward to the imminent, full adoption of digital technologies. With changes to your finance operating model, technology and people, your Finance 2020 organization can become a predictive analytics powerhouse and go-to decision support source for the business. Some analysts say digital may kill finance. Is that a good or a bad thing? The expert speak. David Axson, Accenture: “The end result of great forecasting is not an accurate picture of tomorrow, but better decisions about the future” (Peter Schwartz). Bo Lykkegaard, IDC: “If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading” (Lao Tzu). Birgit Starmanns, SAP: “The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones” (John Maynard Keynes). Join us for Finance in 2020: How Much Transformation?
