In so many interactions that I have with CFOs, they ask about the implications of new technology for the future of finance.  

My answers have, of necessity, been based on my own experiences and observations.  

Now with this comprehensive, global study from the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants, CFOs can gain a more objective set of insights.  This paper sets out some initial themes that have come out of that research; more will come as findings are analysed.  A valuable tool for CFOs and other interested in thinking about the role and operating model for finance.
