The Evolving Role of the CFO

The rise of the digital economy has faced finance professionals with the challenge of turning the current market reality into their advantage.
New business models should not be held back by disconnected finance processes and legacy technology platforms, as they should instead be moving forward along with the digital revolution.
CFOs should then envision a future wherein they are equipped with the information they need to make decisions right away without having to wait for end of the month results or annual reports.

We will be discussing:
– The various functions in the finance area that will be affected by the digitization of business models.
– The challenges finance leaders currently face in Dubai.
– How CFOs can remain successful and relevant in a digital era.
