Digital transformation (DX) has progressed well beyond the abundant hype predicting it to where it is now an existential concern for many enterprises. We are at an inflection point as digital transformation efforts shift from "project" or "initiative" status to strategic business imperatives. Growing enterprises,
regardless of age or industry, are striving to become "digital native" in the way their executives and employees think, what they produce, and how they operate. IDC predicts that by 2021, at least 50% of global GDP will be digitized, with growth in every industry driven by digitally enhanced offerings, operations, and relationships, and that by 2020, investors will use platform/ecosystem, data value, and customer engagement metrics as valuation factors for all enterprises.

CFOs today are finding themselves in a leadership position at the strategy table. Whether your company’s objectives are to deliver growth in 2016 or stay the course, it is crucial that the office of finance contribute to the strategic decision-making process and become one of the company’s trusted business partners.

Listen to how Finance Professionals are helping guide their organizations toward making well-reasoned, data-driven strategic decisions.
Cloud, mobile, social media, and big data were once considered intimidating new technologies by CFOs; today they are the cornerstone of any successful financial department. That’s the evolution of digitization. The role of the CFO is evolving to become more strategic and CFOs of established firms are taking notice that going digital creates value.
The road map outlines a set of evolving objectives, challenges, required competencies, and success measures needed to transform IT from a cost center to a strategic value driver. It is designed to address key success factors at the executive sponsorship level and at the infrastructure level.
HR processes are changing. And, with the global skills crisis, HR Directors are struggling to attract and retain the best talent. Their departments are in flux, and 77% of organisations report a perceived lack of strategic value from HR.* If you’re going to win the war for talent, your organisation will need to make a radical change. It must transform its HR and become a People Company, utilising people data and analytics to make decisions based on real evidence. This will improve the way you interact with current and future employees, providing great workforce experiences. The result will be a more committed and engaged workforce, and increased interest in joining your organisation. From a business perspective too, you’ll benefit through higher levels of productivity, efficiency and improved performance and engagement.
