The Future of Finance - 2021 and Beyond

by Workday

We’re pleased to offer an exclusive look into the current state of finance, taken from the insights of your fellow Financial Director readers.

Companies across the globe faced unprecedented disruption in 2020 as a result of the pandemic. Government-enforced lockdown restrictions shut premises, pushed organisations to switch their operating models, and shattered already fragile global supply chains.

That’s why it’s more important than ever that organisations think strategically about the finance function and how it can unlock added value. If 2020 has taught organisations anything, it’s that they’ve got to be more agile to respond quickly and effectively to major operational change.

However, according to our recent survey of finance leaders, progress has been slow. Barriers to digital transformation and mounting issues with legacy tech have exposed a genuine need for change and modernisation not just for the finance function, but enterprise-wide.

To enhance collaboration and improve how data is shared and analysed, the finance function must invest in a suite of digital products which surround and support the office of the CFO – before it’s too late.

In this report, we explore how digital-led efforts are progressing within finance teams, how they’re collaborating with other departments to unlock value and the disconnects that are holding back digital transformation efforts in 2021. Don’t allow yourself to fall behind – fill in the form to get your copy.
