The world is changing rapidly – and the finance function needs to change too. Finance teams need to become strategic, data-driven superheroes who work across the entire business. But how can they get there?

Prof Kristof Stouthuysen joins Snowflake CFO Michael Scarpelli to discuss the steps organisations need to take to transform their finance department into a high-performing, data-driven digital finance function. Join us on 5 October to hear their thoughts.

Data is changing the way we do business. And it’s reshaping the finance function too. Finance teams now have real-time data that can help them be proactive, rather than reactive. But that’s not enough. They also need to be able to create dynamic models that inform real-time business insights. And they need to be empowered to build partnerships with other functions across the business. To achieve all of this, the finance function needs to invest in data science.

In this webinar, we dive into the future of finance as a data-driven, strategic planning and forecasting function – and what it takes to get there.
