The role of the CFO is evolving to span far beyond core financial tasks to focus on delivering value and maximizing revenue. A recent EY study, titled "The DNA of the CFO," discusses this shift:

"As disruption unfolds, transparency issues gain reach and regulation spreads, the world is in flux for finance leaders. How organizations deliver value is being reset for a digital age. Forcing the blur is the increasing amount of risk, connected and volatile markets, and the rapid advance of technology. To reinvent itself for a new age, the finance function is transforming into a data-driven decision center, where smart people and smart machines help make better financial, strategic and operational decisions.”
