Mark Nittler, Vice President of Application Strategy at Workday, discussed finance and accounting technology in his presentation with Argyle's CFO membership at the 2015 Chief Financial Officer Leadership Forum in New York on Nov. 5.
"We can address the people side of it. We'll retrain them to get them more efficient, but if we’re not giving them the right tools and the right processes to do that, they're not going to be able to manage that."
Shailesh Bettadapur, VP and Treasurer for Mohawk Industries, and Mark Nittler, VP of Financial Applications Strategy for Workday, discussed the evolution of finance to become more strategic and forward-looking, and the benefits and challenges of technology.
“The evolution of finance is represented by a desired shift of focus and resources from accounting and transaction processing to analytics and business leadership, which is driven by the need for better information, better and faster decision making, and deeper understanding of costs across the organization”
