Why the future belongs to data-driven CFOs

Chief financial officers aren’t going to stop concentrating on the books by any means. But they are increasingly looking to leverage the power of data to make better decisions – and to make those decisions more of the time. The future belongs to these individuals, who are taking advantage of the ability to mine, organise, analyse, and act upon data.
