The future of finance is bright. Accenture predicts that by 2020, productivity of finance will increase by two to three times while organisational costs will decline by 40%. They also predict a dramatic shift in time spent on analysis, from a mere 25% today to 75% in the future.

These transformative predictions are due in large part to the digitisation of accounting, and the
digitisation of business in general. Technologies like cloud computing, mobile, automation and analytics are delivering dramatic improvements in efficiency, and finance organisations are tapping into it, with 82% of CFOs pointing to cloud applications as the future of their business applications.
