of Finance. Watch the CCH Tagetik In Touch highlight video here.

The Value of Finance Modernization

Emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning and
predictive analytics is driving customer-facing innovation. Yet the
Office of Finance is often held back by legacy technology, despite the
push for CFOs to be more strategic, forward-looking, and
business-focused. According to FSN’s Innovation
in the Finance Function Survey 2018
, a staggering 54% of respondents
would like to be more innovative but rarely get the time, funding or
support to invest in finance operations innovation.

“Innovation comes in many forms with small steps along the way,” said
Manuel Vellutini, Executive Vice President, CCH Tagetik, Wolters Kluwer
Tax & Accounting. “CFOs should rethink process architecture to reduce
complexity, improve effectiveness and increase collaboration. Moving
past legacy systems is crucial. A CFO will be challenged if they’re
trying to provide strategic advice to the company while relying on data
from offline spreadsheets.”

During the general session, Wolters Kluwer experts
discussed key challenges facing the Office of Finance and how to solve
them including:

  • Shifting to cloud CPM solutions address the challenges of annual
    budgeting, demands for real-time insights, and monitoring
    decentralized processes
  • Transforming granular data into intelligent insights that can be used
    for operational decision making while still maintaining the control,
    governance and accountability that CFOs are responsible for

Real World Transformations

Throughout the event, several dozen customers shared
of their company’s Office of Finance transformation.
Industry leaders including Driscoll’s, the #1 berry company in
the world, Aegon Asset Management, the world’s largest financial
services origination and Tarsus Group, an international
business-to-business media company, discussed their pain points and how
they transformed.
