Back from the Future: How Finance Leaders Can Drive Transformation

TCS recently partnered with CFO Magazine on research with 689 Global CFOs and Senior Finance executives and uncovered how the CFO role is evolving in the Business 4.0 and Digital Finance landscape. Finance leaders are now actively focused on adopting a Machine-First Model, aligning human skills and technological advances along with new digital strategies and agile methods in order to support growth for their businesses.

  • Allocating resources
  • Recruiting talent who can drive technical advances
  • Aligning functions such as marketing and product development

The new digital mandate requires that they make strategically selective investments. Finance Execs need to be prepared to weigh the value of new and mature technologies.
