How to Get the Most Out of This Transformative Moment for Business Technology If 2023 was the year when generative artificial intelligence (AI) finally became a consumer reality, this will be the year when AI in a business context takes a big step forward. There is simply no doubt that more and more companies will adopt business AI this year as a key part of their digital transformations and to future proof their operations. But to look at AI alone is to miss the bigger picture of this generational shift in enterprise technology. While AI may get all of the attention, this is actually a moment when two transformative technologies for business are converging. On one side there is the awesome power of the cloud, which allows businesses to break down silos so their teams can access the data they need to innovate faster and in a more secure environment.

Is Supply Chain Innovation Even Possible in an Era of Tighter Regulation? The world is experiencing a new, tougher business environment. Trade tensions, wars, climate change, and countless other disruptions are putting the brakes on a long and steady period of globalization. Given this growing uncertainty, companies must reconfigure global supply chains to improve their resilience.
Business leaders might assume that more regulation in such a volatile environment would hinder the innovation they require most at this time. However, we will argue smart and balanced regulation can serve as a catalyst for transformation.

The financial close: Top 5 challenges for midmarket companies Financial close is a process long associated with tedious, error-prone tasks, underpinned by intense pressure to close the books as fast as humanly possible. And while crucial business decisions often hang in the balance, the financial statements and reports that they hinge on are only as good as their accuracy and reliability. Today, midmarket companies face intense competition and must be able to pivot and adapt their business models at a rapid pace. Efficient and dependable financial close processes help bring confidence and speed to corporate planning and decision-making – and help investors and shareholders to recognize a good thing when they see it.
