Digital Aware Finance Professional


Foundations in Digital Finance Function Technology

Today, accounting and finance professionals need to play a full role in delivering organisational transformation which includes an awareness of technology and the impact on talent and skills.

It is not sufficient to assume that accounting and finance professionals are only concerned with financial activities in a low tech, low data environment. We must learn what digital is, how to benefits from it, and how new tools and systems, automation and data analytics is an opportunity for us all.
