“Digital used to be about coding and IT, now it’s becoming a people business” Mary Kate Loftus
Digital is disruptive, and a change of mind-set is necessary to embrace it. Businesses today need to know, not only what they need but have a clear idea as to what they want to achieve and in what span of time.
Digital transformation won’t drive itself; it has to be driven by all the departments irrespective of whether it’s Marketing, Finance, HR, SCM, etc. In the years ahead, cloud-based ERP, automation, and cognitive innovation will continue creating opportunities to radically simplify the processes as well as complete those processes uninterrupted in a shorter span of time.
As technology and digital services continue to ingrain themselves into more aspects of our lives, the financial sector has not been immune. The key changes happening in the world of Finance are FinTech, Digital Banking, Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning & Blockchain, etc.
Artificial Intelligence: AI and machine learning will leave an indelible mark on the financial industry. Fraud detection is not only what AI will do. Complex algorithms created from enormous amounts of data are providing insights into consumer behavior, providing real-time investment insights, regulatory compliance, and more.
Data Dissemination: Actual Data and Forecasted Data can now be produced instantly; traditional cycles become less relevant. The old distinction between operational and analytical data begins to disappear. Projections & Forecasting are not done once a month or quarterly. It’s all happening in real-time.
ERP: ERP vendors are already building digital technologies like automation, blockchain, and cognitive tools into their products. Cloud-based ERP will help ensure constant and regular updates.
Finance is entering a golden age of technology. Fintech Disruptors are coming our way in all shapes and sizes. With all these digital transformations happening the Institute, as well as the students, should be geared up to meet these changes and disruptions.
