If the go-go 1990s, with its fast money and flush credit seeking rapid and steep returns, created the demand for "renaissance" Chief Financial Officers ("CFO"), who could manage (and market) both the strategic and financial operations of the enterprise, the more sobering decade that followed led directly to the creation and subsequent rise of the Chief Procurement Officer ("CPO"), who could reduce costs, build internal relationships, and develop strategic suppliers efficiently and effectively.

Today’s economy is widely characterized by skittishness and uncertainty about the future. The effect that unpredictable external forces can have on the economy can leave many business leaders feeling helpless. This fact was demonstrated in the IBM Global CFO Study, where many CFOs admitted that they lacked the ability to measure and monitor business performance effectively. The same study also found that the companies who invested in their business insight capabilities were better able to anticipate and react to external economic forces. IBM Cognos software can provide businesses with the business insight they need to be prepared, not scared. Cognos software allows businesses to analyze performance, model business strategies and processes, and contribute to a common set of business objectives.

As today’s global marketplace becomes more sophisticated, the number and complexity of mission-critical financial transactions that companies conduct on a day-to-day basis continues to grow exponentially. Even small and mid-sized businesses are plagued by a rapidly increasing volume of financial processes that are highly intricate and multi-faceted. These activities, while important, are administrative in nature and often distract staff from more strategic planning initiatives that directly impact company prosperity and growth. Additionally, as legislative pressures continue to grow, and the rules imposed by Sarbanes Oxley, BASEL II, and other regulations become more stringent, businesses need to find better ways to ensure compliance by effectively logging, tracking, auditing, and reporting their financial data.

But few CFOs have actually made the change, primarily because they have neither the time nor the necessary capabilities within the current finance team. But for those who do make the change, the rewards are tangible. This chapter lays out a number of important steps that the CFO and the finance team need to take to position themselves as trusted and valued business partners within the organization.

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.
