CFO Insights 2021: Achieving Resilience in the Cloud

The crisis and the rapidly changing economy have exposed the limitations of existing tools for IT and finance departments and amplified the need to digitalize their office and processes going into 2021 and beyond. This includes replacing legacy systems that the organization has outgrown.

According to Gartner, “Many have often found their legacy solutions to be too IT-reliant and a hindrance to enterprise collaboration within finance departments and other finance areas.”

The cloud has fundamentally changed the way in which business technology is implemented. The 2020 EY DNA of the CFO survey revealed that 85% of CFOs expect finance to be increasingly cloud-native, with sensitive finance data moving from on-premises to the cloud.

But optimizing the benefits of the cloud is not a simple technical upgrade. It represents an opportunity to redefine and transform a finance organization.

It is freeing the finance teams from administrative tasks, helping them win back valuable time from mundane tasks and, in doing so, giving them the opportunity to lead digital transformation.

How to navigate this cloud-native journey and future is the core of a virtual forum organized by CXOCIETY and co-hosted with AWS. In it, we plan to reveal strategies and methodologies for Achieving Resilience in the Cloud.

To make this event more interactive and rewarding, we will be joined by a panel of senior finance leaders to share their learnings, challenges and experiences in 2020 and their plans for 2021.
