The survey shows that 71% of finance executive respondents think that shifting finance solutions to the cloud is fundamentally challenging; however, 66% believe the value realized from a cloud strategy exceeds the cost of meeting its challenges.


Success at the Market Rate

What drives company financial performance?  It’s a soup with a plethora of ingredients, of course.  But key traits possessed by CFOs certainly correlate with revenue growth, according to SAP and Oxford Economics.

The firms surveyed 1,500 CFOs from around the world and divided the respondents into two categories: “finance leaders” and “others”, based on their answers to a handful of questions.  The leaders, who comprised only 11.5% of participants, were defined as having self-reported that they:
