Enabling profitability and resilience with autonomous finance

About this event

“An autonomous finance function isn’t just automated; it is capable of delivering augmented, real-time and predictive insights, effortless compliance and greater flexibility in financial strategy.” Gartner.

“The top three challenges are a reflection of CFOs’ struggles to manage against a backdrop of persistent inflation and unusually high macroeconomic uncertainty,” said Marko Horvat, vice president, research, in the Gartner Finance practice. “CFOs need to identify the few critical areas where investments should be accelerated, such as human capital and digital investments, while optimizing costs against a backdrop of stubbornly high inflation; this is no easy task.”

FutureCFO understands that while technology will play an important role in its transformation, technology alone will not deliver on the potential of autonomous finance. What is needed is the convergence of the experience, expertise, and mindset to drive the humanization of technology in the journey to autonomous finance.

This 19th April, we invite you to an exclusive, closed-door discussion on how to bring about this convergence and with it achieve sustained profitability and resilience with autonomous finance.
