FP&A is a crucial component of the CFO’s job, but it is often frustratingly ineffective. As a result, many organisations use the data produced by finance only for compliance; their strategic decision making remains uninfluenced by it. However, the emergence of sophisticated software solutions has created new opportunities for CFOs to turn FP&A into the strategic exercise it ought to be.

Mention artificial intelligence (AI) to a person on the street, and you'll conjure up Hollywood visions ranging from the humanity-crushing Skynet of the Terminator series to the robot love interests in Her or Ex Machina. Perspectives on the tangible impact of AI similarly range from Elon Musk's declaration of AI as "the greatest risk we face as a civilization" to IBM Chief Science Officer Dr. Guruduth Banavar's belief that "we've never known technology that can have a greater benefit to all of society than artificial intelligence". The reality, especially in the short term, likely lies somewhere between these extremes.

It is an exciting and challenging time for CFOs as their role continues to evolve in a dynamic, everchanging business environment.

Companies are looking to their CFOs for strong leadership in developing corporate strategies and achieving growth. CFOs can meet these rising expectations by leveraging their knowledge of corporate data to extract valuable insights about customers, suppliers, partners and other stakeholders. Supported by analytics, CFOs can help their companies create a global, unified and clear view of their many relationships with customers and others to guide intelligent risk-taking and thoughtful investment—both necessary catalysts for growth. This capability will also enable the company, particularly its sales and marketing functions, to move faster and adapt more quickly to changing conditions. The 21st-century CFO is not only concerned with controlling costs and minimizing risk, but also with maximizing opportunities and generating growth. The right foundational technologies and organizational processes for data-driven decision making can help them achieve all of these strategic goals.

Since when did budgeting become a process that companies dread? Just say the word “budget,” and you’ll elicit at least a few groans or eyerolls from teams outside of finance. It’s daunting: the weight of the next few years rests on a couple of forecasts, financial projections and line-item lists. As a result, cross-functional teams are under a lot of stress to ensure that their cases and arguments are heard. In some ways, the budgeting process almost feels combative.

As more and more data pours into the office of the CFO, experts say, minimizing its complexity and maximizing its usefulness becomes critical. “The amount of data is phenomenal,” says Mr. Whitehead of Airbus Defence and Space, “but what’s worse is the lack of harmonization. Unstructured data is what kills you. The key for me is how to have clear data in a usable and consistent form, which can be turned into succinct information the business can look at, understand where the value chain is, and make decisions.”
