How SAP S/4HANA® Finance helps organizations close the capability gap. On the upside, industry convergence is creating completely new opportunities for growth by shifting the focus from standalone products and services to cross- sector customer experiences. On the downside, it’s exacerbating competition because rival enterprises can seize an organization’s core business as they expand into adjacent spaces. Digital invaders with disruptive new business models are compounding the challenge, as they bypass established providers and even reshape entire industries. CFOs, like other CxOs, attribute much of this change in the competitive landscape to a potent mix of market pressures and technological progress. So how can they help guide their organizations through the tumult as safely and profitably as possible? In this interactive document, we present the key results from the IBM Institute for Business Value’s recent report, “Redefining Performance: Insights from the Global C-Suite Study – The CFO Perspective,” and examine how IBM and SAP® software can help CFOs meet the challenges of finance in a digital world.
