Overview

The Finance function is on the front line of every business's response to Covid-19, but the crisis is highlighting weaknesses in financial applications. The IT function has a critical role to play in addressing the bottlenecks that are now hampering Finance's operations. With the right tools and techniques, IT can work with the Finance function to solve these most pressing challenges, and do so now, when it matters most. There are three key areas where IT can quickly deliver technology that will enhance the business's ability to respond to and recover from the outbreak:


1) Risk Mitigation: Delivering risk mitigation tools to support decision making.

Finance must prepare for a range of extreme scenarios, and technology has a key role to play in assessing every position the business could find itself in. 

2) Transparency: Providing an integrated, real-time view of the business's financial position.

Rapid access to financial information has never been more important, and Finance needs support from IT to achieve it.

3) Speed & Flexibility: Adding functionality and revising business processes to enable rapid innovation. 

Processes in areas such as procurement need to be flexed to enable rapid responses under these new business conditions. Only the IT function can assist Finance in adapting to this new business environment.

 

In this webinar you will hear about the pressures the Finance function is facing today, how these pressures have has changed as a result of Covid-19, and the role technology can play in addressing them. We will then discuss ways these in which enhancements can be delivered without disrupting the function when stability is critical.
