FSN's Future of the Finance Function Research 2017 finds that CFOs are Data-Complacent

17th May 2017

Second generation CFOs have accepted the mantle of strategic advisor and business partner but poor exploitation of data, new technology and innovation remains a stumbling block.



The new research “The Future of Financial Reporting Survey 2017” was crowd-sourced from members of the FSN Modern Finance Forum on Linkedin.

810 senior finance professionals responded to the survey covering 23 industries.   56% of the respondents were from Europe, 15% from North America and 10.6% from Asia-PAC.  Approximately half of the respondents were from organisations with more than 1,000 employees. 

The research was kindly sponsored by Aptitude SoftwareBlackLineFinancialForceOracle NetSuite and Workday. Our thanks goes to these organisations for their enthususiastic support as well as all of the memebers of the FSN Modern Finance Forum who participated.
