Musings from the HFS F&A Digital Roundtable

In November 2020, HFS held a all-digital Capgemini-supported executive roundtable. This roundtable brought together F&A leaders across multiple industry verticals and geographies, HFS analysts, and Capgemini to discuss how the initial pandemic shock could help re-design how the finance function runs and contributes greater business value across the organization.

Download HFS’s reflections from this F&A Leadership Roundtable by Don Ryan (Senior Vice President, HFS), Reetika Fleming (Research Vice President, HFS), and Saurabh Gupta (Chief Research Officer, HFS) including:

  • Effectively use innovative technology, such as AI and automation
  • The responsibility for F&A, ultimately, is to create demand for new services
  • New talent, with skills that far exceed a focus on accounting and finance, is the most important ingredient to the future of finance.
