In this 30 minute webinar, Gary Simon, FSN’s Chief Executive and Leader of the Modern Finance Forum on LinkedIn interviews Mark Nittler, the visionary behind the development of Workday’s innovative financial management, planning and forecasting applications in the cloud. Together they explore the research findings, and examine how CFOs can break the deadlock in reporting to accelerate the move to self-service reporting and produce a more dependable reporting environment for operations and the boardroom.
Financial reporting, whether for internal stakeholders or public consumption, forms the bedrock of the finance function and is often the primary and most visible measure of the finance function’s professional competence and standing. But FSN’s new survey, “The Future of Financial Reporting” finds a process that is teetering under the strain of new information demands, a spreadsheet-spiral™ and ageing technology that is unable to respond to change. Encouragingly however, the study which involved nearly 1,000 senior finance professionals globally, points to a compelling way forward.
