A recent survey by CFO found that less than half of CFOs are “implementing new technology concepts.” Another survey by Deloitte found that, again, less than half of CFOs consider their teams as “skilled” adopters of artificial intelligence (AI). Even as the pandemic forced finance and accounting to adapt and rely more on technology, CFOs typically remain slow to modernize compared with their peers running sales, marketing, operations, and other teams.
But it’s never too late to change, which is why you should download our new eBook,
“CFOs and AI: It’s Not Too Late to Get In the Game”.
While the Office of the CFO has been tagged as notoriously slow to adopt new technologies, it is becoming increasingly apparent that we are living in the Golden Age of CFO Technology. And ironically, it’s these more recent technologies—AI, machine learning, natural language processing—that are finding more acceptance and traction across finance and accounting. Luckily for CFOs out there who may be lagging, it’s not too late to get into the AI game.
What makes today’s AI so attractive and easy to deploy for CFOs is the renewed focus on the people instead of the technology. Where the typical approach to AI was to provide highly complex tools that required highly specialized skills to understand let alone apply, today’s AI works behind the scenes to assist the work people already do. It then makes those people faster, more accurate, and more efficient.
This “CFOs and AI: It’s Not Too Late to Get In the Game” white paper discusses four specific areas where AI is already transforming the Office of the CFO. These include scaling tactical tasks, enabling people to focus on higher-value activities, eliminating human error, and providing real-time prescriptive insights. Using research from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, MIT, Oracle, and other sources, as well as real use cases from companies like Specialized Bicycle Components, the white paper details why purpose-built AI can fundamentally change how the Office of the CFO works, provides value, and drives successful outcomes.
