CFO’s Perspective on IT
Wednesday, March 24: 11:30 a.m.
American Tobacco Campus – Bay 7
324 Blackwell St, Washington Building – Bay 7, Durham, NC 27701
It’s a tough time, but a great time, to be a Chief Financial Officer. CFOs are finding themselves more at the center of a variety of business and strategic issues than ever before, becoming a major decision maker and influencer within the company.
From traditional balance sheet issues to a greater focus on the full range of GRC (governance, regulation and compliance) issues, CFOs are submerged in business operations and the decision-making process, particularly in areas of technology. Compliance, risk management, ERP systems, internal controls, movement to a SaaS model, cloud computing – these areas affect the CFO as much as any other part of the organization. As a result, it makes sense for technology professionals to understand how the CFO sees things.
Join Local Tech Wire for a roundtable discussion with several leading CFOs to hear about their perspective on a variety of technology-related issues. This is a unique opportunity to hear directly from the corner office. Whether you’re a technology vendor trying to sell to a CFO, or a technology professional trying to gain budget approval from your CFO, you can’t miss this session.
