FP&A is a crucial component of the CFO’s job, but it is often frustratingly ineffective. As a result, many organisations use the data produced by finance only for compliance; their strategic decision making remains uninfluenced by it. However, the emergence of sophisticated software solutions has created new opportunities for CFOs to turn FP&A into the strategic exercise it ought to be.

It is an exciting and challenging time for CFOs as their role continues to evolve in a dynamic, everchanging business environment. To keep up with the pace of change and steer their companies toward growth, CFOs need to focus on strategic value and how they can support the broader organization. Driving growth, contending with an ever-evolving regulatory environment, delivering deeper and more-strategic business insights, and staying agile as demands change requires a new kind of finance organization. All of this change will continue to lead CFOs to look inward at their finance systems and evaluate if they can help support business demands today and in the future.

Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review, less than half of an organization’s structured data is actively used in making decisions. The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.

Fact: In the next three years, 53% of CFOs estimate that over half of their enterprise transactions will be delivered through the cloud, up from the 12 percent who use that delivery mechanism today. In addition to non-core business processes like project management and email, strategic CFOs are also starting to embrace the cloud to deliver core ERP processes, including financial management, human capital management, and procurement. Rather than view the cloud just as a cost-saving platform, they recognize the strategic benefits that the cloud delivers to get critical growth initiatives up and running quickly, whether that’s using the cloud to quickly upgrade to a new application, or delivering new mobile or analytical capabilities to employees.

Two dominant trends are potentially reshaping the role of the HR function in the corporate world. The first relates to the rapid growth of the knowledge economy. In this environment, a committed, appropriately skilled and prudently deployed workforce is critical in order to develop new products and outstrip the competition. Second, many administrative functions that were formerly handled by HR departments, such as payroll and pensions, have now been farmed out to third parties. Indeed, research reveals that more than two-thirds of companies outsource a portion of their HR functions. This report by the Economist Intelligence Unit investigates whether the HR function is forging a close and robust relationship with the CEO. It also explores the nature of these working relationships, how they have been affected by the economic downturn and how they vary across industries and regions.
