Optimising the CIO-CFO partnership to drive business transformation
- Tuesday, 20th September 2022
- 12:30pm to 5pm
- Location: Home House, London
Several trends have brought the seemingly competing interests of CIOs and CFOs in alignment in recent years. Accelerated digital transformation made the CIO a strategic partner to the business. IT has evolved from a cost center to a revenue driver. Finance needs IT to figure out how to transition to a more data-driven business.
But CIOs and CFOs still don’t always speak the same language. To optimise the relationship we need a common framework for IT investment governance, a collaborative financial planning and analysis approach for IT that breaks down functional silos and establishes cross-functional partnerships.
Join us at this CIO WaterCooler Focus event to explore
- what CFOs need from IT leaders and what IT can bring to Finance
- how CIOs can bring the business as stakeholders into the IT investment process
- how to facilitate collaborative decision-making from the C-Suite across the business
