In recent years, when discussing the future of finance, “mobile” and “social” have been buzzwords for how technology will transform the finance function. Although these tools had significant advantages for collaboration and efficiency, many finance chiefs held off on investment due to IT, compliance, and real-world application concerns.
But now mobile computing and social collaboration tools have shifted from the future to the present—these tools are now reaching maturity and being used across finance functions to connect to core processes, share data and analysis, and support new functionalities. To enable their companies to keep up with the competition, finance teams must understand and embrace all that these tools offer.
