Finance chiefs are playing an increasing role in technology decisions as their thirst for better visibility, analytics, and intelligence increases.

It is no coincidence that CFOs' increased involvement in the buying process is happening as more IT spending is being directed toward business analysis to help make information more actionable to better support organizational growth.

How do CFOs balance technology evaluation and decision making with their overall roles and responsibilities? Is there an optimal level of involvement for a CFO? Are there different buying criteria that should be utilized when C-level executives have a greater interest in purchasing decisions?

Join Treasury & Risk Magazine, for this live, interactive webcast, sponsored by Kyriba, and hear from industry experts regarding the growing influence CFOs now have in their organization’s technology purchasing decisions. Attend this online-only event and learn how CFOs can balance their traditional job demands with these new responsibilities.
