Automation is the top priority

A survey of 200 CFOs was recently conducted that resulted in some interesting data regarding the current and future state of the accounting and finance industry.  Here’s a few statistics from that survey:

  • 86% said the skills of their team must evolve for new roles played by data and analytics
  • Under 10% said that their processes are more than 75% automated
  • Over 30% said they planned to have 75% of their process automated

From just those numbers you can see that the industry is planning for BIG changes.

Based on this trend I have some questions for you
