Why You Should Attend!



*This live virtual event qualifies for 1 CPE Credit.

It can be said that the role of the CFO is changing to be the 'Chief Analytics Officer'. Digital technologies and a keener focus on business insights are changing how people and businesses interact. Disruption is being fueled by a convergence of industries, consumers' evolving expectations, and emerging business and operating models.

In this session Scott Mall, North America Finance Leader, Cognitive Process Services, will present on the key challenges facing Finance teams. We will then discuss with our executive panel how disruptive technologies - including robotic automation, cognitive and blockchain, are affecting shared services in general, and Finance in particular. Focusing on customer stories, we will look at what digital reinvention involves for traditional organizations, as they look at the impact on strategy, operations and technology. We will discuss practical steps to begin or progress a digital reinvention journey.
