CFOs in the Digital Age

Modern CFOs are embracing their role as business catalysts and technology evangelists skilled in identifying organizational needs and partnering with other lines of business to support process excellence, better operational performance, and innovation. Indeed, Gartner’s 2014 CFO’s Technology Imperatives survey results reflect the stronger role CFOs have over technology decision-making, with roughly 50 percent of CIOs and CTOs now reporting directly to the CFO, while another 25 percent have a dotted-line relationship.  “Modern Finance in the Digital Age” is a research report by Oracle in collaboration with Financial Executives Research Foundation (FERF). The report explores leading practices CFOs are adopting in the Digital Age to create modern finance organizations which are better equipped to support more agile, technology-enabled business models and stronger C-suite collaboration.
