[Survey Report] xP&A Business Partnering Roadmap: Understanding breakthroughs, opportunities and determining the end goal

//

By: DigitalCFO & Jedox | 5 April 2022


Rapid tech innovations, dynamic customer demands and a global pandemic – We live in a world that is volatile and susceptible to disruptions. Leaders today need to know sooner, act faster, and adapt more quickly to changing business conditions.


To that end, the value of planning and analysis has never been more crucial. Businesses may have made decisions in the past using spreadsheets, siloed procedures, and unlinked end-to-end systems. However, with the emergence of digitisation and constant volatility of the market, these traditional ways may now lead to more delays, errors, and frustrations.


DigitalCFO & Jedox jointly organised a physical CFO Executive Roundtable discussion with more than 10 senior finance leaders sharing valuable insights with each other.

    [Case Study] How Digital Securities By ADDX Are Changing Corporate Finance

    ADDX, CGS-CIMB and Taurus Point

    How Digital Securities By ADDX Are Changing Corporate Finance


    Digital commercial papers are similar to traditional ones, but with a twist – they are issued using blockchain and smart contract technology, making them more efficient to administer. They represent one application of digital securities, an innovation that is quickly catching on in the capital markets and is now being used in a wide range of issuances, including that of equity, bonds and fund units.


    In April 2021, one of the earliest digital commercial papers in Asia was issued by financial services provider CGS-CIMB Securities (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (“CGS-CIMB”) on the private market exchange ADDX. CGS-CIMB established a SGD150-million programme. The first tranche of approximately SGD10 million raised capital from both individual and corporate accredited investors, via a three-month paper. Taurus Point Capital was the adviser to CGS-CIMB for this issuance.


    This case study examines what digital commercial papers are, what gap they fill in the current corporate financing landscape, as well as the long-term implications if this instrument becomes widely accepted among issuers and investors.

        [Whitepaper] 10 Key Requirements for Next-Level Financial Consolidation

        By: Board Asia Pacific | 11 November 2021

        Consolidation is a foundational element of any corporate performance management solution today. Improved management reporting, for example, which is cited as a primary driver in two-thirds of all CPM/BPM projects, relies heavily on consolidation functionality. Larger and medium-sized enterprises that seek to improve their financial consolidation are usually aiming to trade up from legacy systems, separate and weakly integrated applications, and/or Excel processes.

        It’s common that a specific pain point drives Finance to consider upgrading financial consolidation, and then a larger vision of how to leverage the upgrade takes shape. We encourage companies to define the vision clearly and extend it as far as practical, because this tends to bring the most extensive benefits.

        This whitepaper recommends a set of ten key criteria for selecting a consolidation solution and gives real-life examples of several major companies that “took consolidation to the next level”.

          [Paper] SWIFT’s Application Programming Interface (API) Revolution

          By: Swift | 17 September 2021

          APIs (application programming interfaces) are the firepower behind many of today’s most popular online products and services, connecting and exchanging data between applications and web servers. An API is a set of software code and definitions that describe how two or more applications can interact and communicate with one another. Developers use APIs as a shortcut to quickly and efficiently integrate their applications with other software. Once implemented, applications exchange data with each other by making ‘API calls’, pushing and pulling information between themselves in real-time. Organisations offer APIs to developers – who could be employees, customers or third parties – as a way of increasing the speed and efficiency of developing new applications that work their software.

          SWIFT has been a leader in unlocking the potential of APIs for years having launched their first API in 2017. Since then, adoption and usage of the SWIFT API channel has grown significantly with more than two billion API calls made over SWIFT in 2020 – a 120% increase year-on-year. 

          The ‘Be part of SWIFT’s open API revolution’ paper explores in detail:

          • APIs and the platform economy
          • Tapping into the power of APIs in financial services
          • Overcoming a key industry challenge: A Fragmented API Environment
          • Harnessing the power of APIs for the SWIFT community
          • APIs: At the heart of SWIFT’s strategy
          • Starting your API journey with SWIFT
          • The APIs available on SWIFT

            [Research] More than half of millennial and Gen Z Muslims would adopt Islamic banking if it were more accessible

            By: Mambu | 5 August 2021

            With an estimated 1.9 billion Muslims around the world – nearly a quarter of the global population and the largest religious group in the world – the opportunity and necessity of Islamic finance is evident. This relatively new banking sector has been around for roughly 40 years, and given how young the industry is, it demonstrates a huge potential and scope for evolution.

            To get better insight into how this industry can develop, Mambu conducted a global survey of 2,000 members of the younger Muslim community (Gen Z and millennials) to understand what Islamic finance means to them, as well as their expectations of this sector.

            Key Beliefs Include:

            • You shouldn’t make money from money –
              essentially, a system that is ‘interest free’
            • Your money should not cause harm, meaning
              Islamic financial services should not invest in
              things like alcohol, tobacco and gambling.
            • Islamic finance encourages partnership
              (Mudarabah), in which partners share in the
              profits and losses of an enterprise.

              [Case Study] Siemens Healthineers Customer Story

              By: Esker | 29 July 2021

              Leading medical technology company, Siemens Healthineers, was looking to automate its highly manual order entry process to free up Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) from time-consuming, low-value tasks and facilitate order management, regardless of order type or format.

              Siemens Healthineers Italy turned to Esker to automate, standardize and streamline its order management process, and ensure full compatibility with NSO.

              Prior to Esker, only 8% of orders were automated. Today, Siemens Healthineers automates 85% of received orders, with 93% of order fields correctly identified by the solution.

                By: Fujifilm & Esker | 26 July 2021

                Amid this disruption, CFOs face myriad challenges. According to EY’s annual global CFO survey, 84% of finance leaders said that balancing short-term results and creating long-term value is a priority.

                The eBook explores in detail:

                • CFO Priorities and goals 
                • The Digital Enterprise: Goals and Challenges for 2021

                    Finance Digital Transformation: How Finance Leaders Can Equip Their Team to Tackle Change

                    By: Workday | 16 Apr 2021


                    The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital transformation across many different areas. However, according to Workday’s CFO Indicator Survey 2020 on finance digital transformation, nearly half of 225 CFOs from global organisations surveyed have not implemented any finance digital transformation initiatives.

                    Finance digital transformation is the implementation and use of digital technologies such as the cloud, machine learning, and augmented analytics to finance processes to create more efficacy, insight, and agility. Up-skilling and change management are essential success factors.

                    Between March and May 2020, we asked 225 CFOs from global organisations how they are navigating uncertainty by initiating finance digital transformation.

                    Learn what finance digital transformation entails and how it helps CFOs adapt.
