Insight Into Empowering Finance and the Enterprise
Brief 7 in a series of 8 | Cloud Computing for Finance
Finance organizations are turning to Software as a Service (SaaS) to achieve greater agility and speed and to solve business problems, often without the support of the IT organization. As the initial hype falls away, cloud does not appear to be a destination, but one of many tools.
“We’ll always be open to cloud-based alternatives…we’ll assess that on every new system we’re going to look at.”
The cloud will become business as usual. Do you understand your true cost of cloud? Have you prioritized certain applications for cloud solutions? Can you evaluate your risk and compliance position with your cloud vendors and solutions?
We launched a research study with CFO Research Services to better understand issues faced by clients, notably the investment in technology that often fails to deliver results for the finance organization. Our focus centered on ideas to leverage from your peers and our experience in helping clients develop and implement successful projects.
