Webcast Summary

Emerging technologies, data, and new skills are providing the firepower that CFOs need to help drive digital transformation and create compelling customer experiences across the business.

However, only a small number of finance teams have the technology and skills to achieve this. New research from the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA and CIMA) and Oracle reveals that an overwhelming majority (89%) of finance teams have yet to embrace AI in the finance function, and only one in ten has the right skills to meet the organization's digital ambitions.

Join this Webcast to learn how high-performing finance functions are leading through operational excellence, digital intelligence, and business influence.

During this Webcast, you’ll discover:

  • The three pillars of an agile, digital finance function
  • The key traits of digital finance leaders and the challenges they have had to overcome
  • How to unleash the potential of your finance organization with the right technologies and skill sets.
