Business Intelligence Slideshow: What Your CFO Is Not Telling You
By Dennis McCafferty | Posted 09-20-2010
It's easy to view your Chief Financial Officer (CFO) as a one-person "Department of No." While you're busy brainstorming with your teams to come up with innovative ways to use technology and improve your organization, your CFO is zeroed-in on budgets and fiscal accountability. The CIO often pursues the unknown, while the CFO's job is all about determining what IS known. With that in mind, CIO Insight has worked with two CFOs to develop this list of seven things your CFO is not telling you, plus three pointers on how you can improve your working relationship. Contributing to this effort are: Tom Crawford, a former CFO who is now senior vice president overseeing North American operations for Microgen; and Greg Baker, CFO at Logicalis. Microgen is a software company that produces business-process platform technology for companies in finance, digital media, energy and other sectors. Logicalis is an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions.
