IT’s Role in Finance Transformation for the Digital Era:

The finance function has been at the front of the line for digital transformation for years. The COVID-19 pandemic may have thrown finance a curved ball on its current trajectories, but it has not completely put strategic initiatives in disarray. On the contrary, it presents an opportunity to give an impetus for fundamental changes that need to be done to be finally taken seriously and with urgency.

Technology leaders are critical in helping to enable and drive this change within finance and it is for this virtual roundtable, that we will be bringing 15 technology leaders together for a productive hour-long discussion/debate. During the discussion we will be covering the following topics:
Technologies finance functions are using to drive change within their function
