Neeraj SinghalChief Financial Officer - Asia Pacific
Strengthening Competitiveness through Agile Finance Transformation
Today’s complex global markets demand exceptional level of agility, accuracy and cost efficiency beyond what the normal human workforces could provide. Allowing finance functions to shrink operating costs, shore up decreasing margins, improve faster-to-market solutions and effectively focus on incrementing the value creation.
What this means is an effective integration of technologies into finance function and unlearning the conventional operating models.
The debate on the utility of hybrid cloud, AI and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and cognitive automation is now settled and the next two years will be a consolidating period for Singapore’s financial community to integrate these technologies in a broader perspective.
The opportunities created are expected to radically simplify current processes and free up redeployable human resource. More business-facing analysis, exception-based investigations, proactive support or expert advice on strategic interventions are a few key financial functions human expertise could turn their focus onto.
This correlates to Deloitte’s prediction of 2025 headcount which states that operational finance (order-to-cash, procure-to-pay, transactional accounting, etc.) will be reduced and support for business finance (business partnering, reporting, planning, budgeting, forecasting, etc.) and specialised finance (tax, treasury, IR, etc.) will continue to grow.
CFOs in Singapore and in the region will look towards improving competitiveness of their finance function through ideal integration of technologies and learn from cross industries on how resources including workforce can be sustainably redeployed.
The 10th CFO Innovation Asia Forum, the region’s largest and longest running industry gathering, in April 2019, will cover these trends extensively with more than 50 cross-industry finance experts sharing their expertise.
Key Topics at CFO Innovation Asia Forum 2019:
What is New at the 10th annual Event?
Who Should Attend?
More than 80% of finance professionals across Asia-Pacific believe that CFOs should expand their roles beyond the finance function. However, they are currently behind on providing advice on key areas such as digitalization and cyber security. Existing tools, systems and technology will need to be improved to stimulate and drive the expansion of CFO roles or they risk being left behind. These include moving finance systems to the cloud, with the majority of companies intending to do so within the next six months, and 33.8% thinking that it’s a priority.
An exclusive peek of a brand new Workday Asia Pacific survey that explores the ever-evolving role of finance leaders and the finance functions within organisations, the perceived challenges and priorities, the significance of this department, as well as the appropriate tools and resources to drive business performance are presented.
