How the CFO can help in IoT Implementation
Information technology (IT) is the backbone of any financial enterprise, which means that IT spends are of prime strategic importance to the C-suite of a bank or a financial services firm. With CFOs playing a key role in the budget related decisions of an organization, their involvement in the evaluation of IT spends is vital. Critical areas in IoT implementation where a CFO’s involvement is needed are:
- Cost-benefit analysis
- Identification of diverse application areas
- Data management and analysis
- Regulatory Compliance
