Finance Transformation Series - Part 2

We're sorry, this event has ended.

Finance. Re-imagined

Digital transformation is fuelled by data-driven insight, however 53% of CFOs believe finance decisions are most often a reactive response. With responsibility for the whole enterprise, the CFO is uniquely positioned to steer business with a sound data strategy. In fact 77% are already exploring disruptive technologies to make it happen. And, more than 75% say change MUST be rapid and drastic. This is a pivotable time for CFOs and the finance function and, in the 6th iteration of The CFO Reimagined, Accenture has uncovered that this is the most dramatic shift to the CFO agenda and the role of the finance function that we’ve seen.

In Part 1 of our series, we explored how CFOs and Finance Leaders are transforming their business to tap into this digital opportunity.

In our next session, register now to join Tableau and visualisation expert, Rebecca Scarlett, as we delve into how Tableau can help uncover critical insights into any KPIs or business processes you need to monitor and stay abreast of for early intervention- whether it be a cost saving initiative or enhancing performance throughout the organisation.

Mike Crook

Director of Finance Data Office, Salesforce + Tableau

Mike spent four years as a software developer supporting financial & management systems before moving into a number of different IT management roles. In 2001, he moved into his first “data analytics” role and luckily discovered Tableau Desktop in 2007. This discovery changed his career. Mike joined Tableau as the first IT Finance Manager in late 2011 and in 2015, he took on a new role as the Senior Manager of Analytics to enable everyone at Tableau to use Tableau. In 2016, he moved back into Finance to lead Finance Analytics. Now he is the Director of the Finance Data Office at Salesforce driving Data Strategy, Governance and Analytics across the entire Finance organization (which includes Tableau). He’s excited to share how anyone, but specifically finance professionals, can use Tableau to see and understand their own data.
