The role of the finance professional is changing...
As a finance professional you have a quality that makes you unlike any other business function or service.
Even before “big data” was the buzzword it is today, you were collecting, processing and analysing data across the business. This puts you in a truly unique position – It gives you visibility of the data produced throughout your entire organisation.
Today, with the introduction of big data technologies, and the increasing need for organisations to effectively analyse data across the business, this position is more powerful than ever.
You’re no longer just responsible for “balancing the books”, your role will soon see you become a key strategic voice when it comes to using data to make value-added business decisions.
