Making the business case for Intelligent Finance
Intelligent Finance Enables the Strategic CFO
A recent economist study found that CFOs and senior finance executives are concerned with their ability to keep up with the pace of change and adapt quickly to changes in the business environment.
Transformative and intelligent technologies – such as in-memory processing, machine learning, predictive analytics, and cloud – are changing the way finance professionals work and increases the value that finance brings to the organisation.
These innovations are driving process efficiencies through increased automation and simplification: freeing finance professionals to spend time focusing on strategic work that improves the overall performance of the enterprise.
The top four concerns of finance professionals:
Adapting to unexpected changes to financial forecasts
Adapting to rapidly evolving business models
Aligning strategic, financial and operational plans
Analysing data across the business to develop strategies

Empowering the CFO
Today’s CFO must be prepared and equipped to help the business respond and evolve to a changing business landscape. As the Economist survey revealed, companies in which finance executives feel empowered to drive strategic decisions across business functions were more likely to have a higher financial performance in financial year (FY) 2016–2017 and FY 2017–2018 and anticipate higher growth rates for FY 2019–2020.2
