Understanding Needs, Evaluating RoI, and Breaking Free From Data Silos

We sat down with three veteran financial professionals with a combined 40+ years of experience to understand how to go about tooling for the finance function.

Today's heightened uncertainties have dialed up the pressure on finance teams, who are now tasked with a greater role in helping the business navigate and prepare for what lies ahead. Against this backdrop, creating a resilient tech stack will be key to fast-tracking future-ready finance operations.

While there is a lot of talk about building a tech stack, opting for the wrong tools puts your team at a disadvantage, hindering progress significantly. In this webinar, we discuss how the finance function is evolving, the new responsibilities that come with it and how to go about picking the right finance tech stack. 

Key Takeaways

  1. Picking tools in line with the finance team’s maturity stage is key to success 
  2. RoI evaluation, migration, implementation, and scaling over time 
  3. Transitioning from data silos to a unified data system

Before selecting tools, analyzing the finance function's needs and maturity stage cannot be missed.

Three stages of finance team maturity

Stage 1: Possess data, function as the accounting arm, and provide it to internal stakeholders.

Stage 2: Enhance operations with business acumen, analytics, and insights shared across the organization.

Stage 3: Transition from data possession to active utilization, catalyzing impactful changes.
