The Audience will ask Finance Leaders on The Technology Ecosystem (No one tool fits all) We are increasingly seeing technology topple the status quo within finance. Manual, time consuming tasks have been invigorated by this digital disruption and the opportunities are substantial. Silos are being broken down, mundane and repetitive tasks are being automated, FTE’s are being lowered considerably whilst efficiency and accuracy has never been higher. Take a holistic overview of the technology web and raise your understanding of the need to know tools within this growing technology ecosystem.
