Embrace evolution in the CFO Office for continuous modernization

Financial, non-financial and operational data is growing very fast. The positive impact of more data is to evolve to actionable data-driven decision making by Management and in Operations enabled by Finance.

A study from the MIT Center for Digital Business found that organizations driven most by data-driven decision making had:

  • 4% higher productivity rates;
  • 6% higher profits.

Looking ahead, both the CFO and CIO can take the responsibility to enable this business, finance and information technology challenge with educated people and a future proof IT-platform in order to be compliant, in control, enable sustainable value creation and agility as a business partner.

ForSight Consulting supports the CFO office to align its Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) capabilities with scalable finance technology to achieve the goal of sustainable value creation and to improve agility. We do this by helping them benefit from an enhanced understanding of EPM practices, knowledge of enabling and emerging technologies and leverage a network of more than 170 EPM experts.

ForSight Consulting helps customers to uncover the opportunities created by an effective and efficient EPM function optimizing financial close, compliance, planning, forecasting, profitability analysis, performance management & advanced analytics to drive improved financial and operational results.
