Global financial organizations are facing increasing demands from the business for more granularity, transparency, reporting and security.

For decades, large companies have been wary of corporate venturing. So why are more and more smart companies going VC to find their next breakthroughs? With corporate R&D units under pressure to focus on a narrow range of projects, companies often lack a good way to sniff out competitive threats beyond their main areas of expertise. A corporate venture capital fund for investing in outside startups can help a company see, understand, and respond rapidly to changes in the business landscape. But the parent company’s processes tend to bog down these funds.

For the past decade, financial institutions have created sophisticated digital platforms for consumers to access, save, share and interact with their financial accounts. As sophisticated as these digital platforms have become, cyber criminals continue to pose an ever-present risk for everyone – from individual consumers to large corporations. In his recent article, 2018 Outlook: Customer Experience and Security Strike a Balance, Andrew Davies, vice president of global market strategy for Fiserv’s Financial Crime Risk Management division, explains how and why security will become a key differentiator for financial institutions as they respond to a changing landscape, which includes: • Global payment initiatives • Open Banking standards • Artificial intelligence and machine learning • Consumer demand for real-time fraud prevention and detection

While being the backbone of many organization’s Offices of Finance and Accounting, it is now commonly acknowledged that this overreliance on Excel spreadsheets coupled with the lack of visibility associated with its use represents a very real risk. With automation available to improve both process efficiency and effectiveness, the challenge many companies face isn’t why they should transform their process but how. The key to overcoming this challenge is creating a strong business case for investment. One that not only sets out the objectives of the project but is also underpinned by a robust financial analysis, in the form of qualitative and quantitative ROI, and a thorough understanding of risk.

One of the most common things we hear when we speak to companies about improving their financial close process through automation is “But I already have an ERP system.” It’s true that an ERP goes a long way towards helping manage some of the financial close process.

In our previous eBook, “Part 1: Enabling Financial Transformation through Technology,” we examined the “why” of Record to Report transformation and briefly described ‘how” you can achieve this through the implementation of Record to Report technology. Now that you understand the “why” and the “how” it’s time to put it into action to ensure a successful Record to Report transformation delivery. But first we need to lay the framework, as the majority of you have probably never embarked on a financial transformation journey before or have experience with a technology purchase or implementation of this calibre.

Typically, Shared Services Center (SSCs) automation initiatives have been undertaken to reduce costs and improve efficiency. These goals are achieved relatively easily within the first few years, most immediately through reduced labor costs and centralized activities. In fact, standardization and centralization deliver up to 50% savings. During subsequent phases, technology automation and outsourcing cut costs further. But, if cost reduction is the only clearly defined goal, organizations will reach a point of diminishing returns.

Digital transformation (DX) is the driving force behind new worldwide initiatives in financial services. However, a recent IDC survey discovered that fewer than 5% of institutions have started or completed a digital transformation strategy.

However, as consumer sophistication with mobility increases — particularly among younger generations —so too does the need to enable mobility for the enterprise worker. This Market Spotlight explores these issues in the larger DX context.

Today’s IT environments are so dynamic and complex that traditional manual administration makes it virtually impossible to keep pace with changing business opportunities and challenges, such as scaling to support new applications and users. Manual administration is not just unsustainable—it’s dangerous.
