Sage recently spoke to more than 500 U.S.- based CFOs to gain their perspectives on what their future job descriptions might look like and get a feel for the real impact technology is having on their daily tasks.

Sage’s resulting report, CFO 3.0 Digital Transformation Beyond Financial Management, illustrates there is more and more demand for real-time data and a digitalization of the finance function. CFOs are increasingly being called upon to provide strategic business counsel. They can’t afford to be focused on the traditional role of simply running the day-to-day business accounts. Competitors who are more innovative and disruptive in their approach will overcome companies who don’t adapt to the times.

Historically, CFOs relied on intuition to shape their business decisions. A focus on daily tasks left little time to tune into the bigger picture and make concrete decisions about a company’s future. Today, CFOs have all the information they need at their fingertips to make quick decisions about a company. They have evolved into true strategists who base their outcomes on practical data. There is no room left for intuition or guesswork. Every business decision is backed by solid, data-driven reasons.

Simply put, Sage Intacct empowers CFOs with the information they need to excel at their jobs in today’s financial world.
