Webcast Summary

By now, most organizations have implemented some level of SaaS-based technology. But the technology continues to evolve, offering safer, more flexible, and more agile tools than ever before. Whether your company has only just started to explore the cloud, or whether you’re an early adopter, CFOs must continue to stay apprised of new developments in cloud-based solutions. 

During this Webcast, a panel of experts will discuss how cloud-based solutions not only improve the efficiency of finance teams by streamlining critical finance processes (e.g., reporting, consolidation, close) but also by impacting areas of critical concern to CFOs, including:

  • Data security
  • Versioning/upgrades
  • Configurability
  • Mobility
  • Data analytics/visualization
