Sponsored by business intelligence software firm Qlik, this research report finds that CFOs in Asia expect to play a wider role in non-financial functions over the next three years, including operations management, enterprise content management, and IT management.

However, they feel let down by their IT vendors – CFOs think these service providers are not interested in making analytics tools simple or easy to use. The quality of data is also a problem, particularly those related to customers, production systems and social media.

Going forward, CFOs will rely on incremental spending to achieve better data efficiency, rather than big-bang technology investments. Most believe that breaking down silos will speed up data flows and decision-making.
