Transforming Your Working Capital to Reduce Costs & Drive Growth - Rimini Street

CFOs today are required to do more than ever, supporting the leadership of the company to drive top-line growth while optimizing ongoing OpEx. The roadblock to innovation continues to be excessive OpEx tied up in maintaining mission-critical, but legacy ERP systems. According to Gartner, IT organizations invest up to 90% of their IT budget maintaining these systems, while the perceived value has dropped sharply this past decade. This has materially hindered the speed of company innovation and overall transformation efforts. Many CFOs have taken a powerful and innovative approach by redefining the relationship with their ERP vendors, optimizing spend and altering the percentage of IT budget available to support top-line growth initiatives.

The Modern Finance Department - Auxis

Raul Vega the CEO of Auxis shares his perspective on how traditional back office models are not going to cut it in today’s hyper-change business environment and why CFO’s need to lead the charge to Modernize.  Raul brings almost 30 years of multi-national, business transformation experience to this discussion and will share key trends and best practices that leading companies are leveraging to modernize their back offices into true enablers of business value.  Some of the specific trends include Robotics Process Automation (RPA), Nearshore Outsourcing, Shared Services and BI.

Speaking

Every year at CXOsync we explore directions from within the Office of the CFO; what are these strategists planning and what paths are they taking? Through these discussions we're able to understand their paths and identify industry trends. By pairing our audience with a selection of industry innovators on edge of product and solution development for the enterprise we're able to incubate true thought-leaders with actionable technology. From leading blue-chips like Rimini Street, Motus and BlackLine to newly funded start-ups this is where we gather the latest and greatest.

Over the years the topic of Women in Finance has been indexed in articles by the likes of Forbes, CFO magazine and Deloitte but where are we today? What can women who aspire to the top of the finance profession do differently - if anything - to get there? What factors are at play regarding women’s progress toward the C-suite? Here we explore this from the eyes of those on that journey, a panel who is living the role of celebrated leaders within finance.
