The future looks bright for a career in finance. That's what finance professionals recently told CFO Research in a global survey asking about their vision for the profession. Those entering the finance profession today look forward to a career that is more deeply engaged with, and contributes more value to, the businesses they support.

Digitalization and advanced analytical capabilities are behind this shift. Information of all types, structured and unstructured, is being generated from more sources than could have been imagined only a short while ago. And so senior finance executives are seeking sophisticated information tools that can support them in meeting the new demands of their roles. Behold, the Digital CFO!

During this Webcast, Chris Schmidt of CFO Publishing will present detailed research findings, highlighting nine changes that are transforming the finance function and five actions finance professionals can take to prepare themselves for tomorrow's finance careers. Then Neil Krefsky of SAP will provide a point of view on the type of modern, collaborative and real-time technology, finance teams are capitalizing on to thrive in today's digital business environment and rise in stature across the corporate landscape.
