Today, SAP’s solution portfolio looks very different and addresses different business needs than the SAP of a few years ago. Instead of primarily managing back-office enterprise resource planning (ERP) processes such as finance and the supply chain, SAP is evolving into a new type of software company that’s poised to enable digital business. Numerous acquisitions — including leading eCommerce solution hybris and cloud solutions Ariba, Concur, and SuccessFactors — and a new platform strategy based on SAP Hana, an in-memory computing solution, mean that the SAP core is positioned to support real-time digital business in the era of connected everything.
Each chapter is illustrated by examples from successful businesses that have embraced digital technologies and the best practices being implemented so that CFOs and their finance teams have the opportunity to become the new organisational wide digital guidance system for their business.

How the CFO role is evolving in this increasingly digital economy that we are all living.
Today’s increasingly competitive global economy requires businesses to make decisions faster than ever. Businesses need instant insight into the status of their people and processes. But manual, paper-based processes undermine decision-making. Paper makes it difficult for businesses to make smart decisions about their operations and their working capital. Manual processes also are costly and inefficient, create headaches for front-line staff, introduce compliance and security risks, and stymie collaboration with trading partners.

It is an exciting and challenging time for CFOs as their role continues to evolve in a dynamic, everchanging business environment. To keep up with the pace of change and steer their companies toward growth, CFOs need to focus on strategic value and how they can support the broader organization. Driving growth, contending with an ever-evolving regulatory environment, delivering deeper and more-strategic business insights, and staying agile as demands change requires a new kind of finance organization. All of this change will continue to lead CFOs to look inward at their finance systems and evaluate if they can help support business demands today and in the future.
In an era of morphing business models, and even fundamental shifts in the way capitalism is practiced around the world, no universal formula can guarantee a CFO’s success. Every country, every sector, and every organization dictates its own parameters for how an individual finance function operates. Nevertheless, our research demonstrates a clear correlation between strong finance leadership and strong enterprise performance— regardless of geography, industry, or company size.
Finance teams today are working harder than ever before. The demands of the global and digital economy have multiplied the finance function’s core responsibilities. At the same time, CFOs are expected to partner with their C-suite colleagues to shape long-term business strategy. When finance chiefs do their jobs well, they make a powerful impact, not only within their own department but also on their company’s overall performance amplifying their importance to the enterprise.

Salaries are expected to rise in the next year, with hiring increasing and unemployment subsequently falling. With these challenges in mind, competition for talent is rising, and middle market organizations will face numerous risks when looking to attract and retain skilled finance and accounting personnel.
