The image of finance professionals huddled in a basement, pushing numbers from one Excel spreadsheet to another might sound incredibly dry and dull. One might think that nothing could be more tedious. But times have changed, and with it, the structure and processes of companies, as well as the roles of specialists and leaders in the financial field.

With the ongoing digital revolution and the advent of big data, finance professionals are now business partners, occupying some of the most central roles in increasing productivity, reducing costs, and even opening up new business fields and models. However, when it comes to setting up infrastructure for automated data transfer from various sources, ensuring data governance, and translating insights into effective measures, many finance professionals find themselves challenged.
