To enable growth while managing risk effectively, finance leaders now need to take three actions:


Modernize with the cloud

Cloud technology solutions will be the most important tool for addressing competing priorities – from pursuing growth to managing risk and improving productivity.

Why? Cloud provides an affordable and scalable infrastructure that is particularly powerful in an uncertain market. It gives you room to maneuver, enabling you to pursue exciting goals in areas such as data and modernization, while giving you the agility to address challenges such as market volatility, new regulatory requirements and cost constraints.

Turn to managed services
for sustainable growth

As finance leaders look to enable long-term growth, a third of organizations plan to increase their reliance on Business Process as a Service (BPaaS).

That means moving entire elements of their function into the cloud, where a third-party provider with specialist expertise and economies of scale can drive increased efficiency and productivity. This type of infrastructure will become increasingly critical as growth accelerates.
