The finance function is under pressure to enhance its value contribution to the business, deliver information and maintain effective controls in line with ever changing governance needs. It is at the same time being subject to continuing internal demands to reduce the cost of its operations. In combination, these pressures create a challenging environment for the finance function.
Multiple pressures imply multiple roles for the finance function:
In Financial Effectiveness we work closely with CFOs, Controllers and Treasurers to provide innovative viewpoints, independent advice and support in developing and optimising their finance operations, in order to meet the changing requirements of their businesses.
Information Technology (IT) has become critical to the operations and competitiveness of organisations around the world. Effectiveness management of IT is under the spotlight because IT is typically among an organisation's top five expenditures, yet research reveals that an average of 10 to 25% of a company's total IT spend is wasted or used unwisely. In today's regulatory compliance environment, it's no wonder senior executives have serious, valid concerns about the risks IT poses in their organisations and the accountability of costs.
PwC works with you to help you align your IT resources with your business objectives and structure them to minimise key business risks.
We assist organisations in managing IT as a business. We address problems in organisations where IT is seen as a constraint on the business or where the reputation of IT is held in low regard. We also help forward looking IT organisations to adopt leading practices in IT management, quality assurance and IT governance.
We meet our clients’ issues by delivering insight based on comparative evidence and fresh, compelling options for structuring IT and taking advantage of technology.
PwC improves the effectiveness of relationships between IT, the organisation and with suppliers. We also work with you to improve the fit of services and solutions to the organisation's needs and in increasing the value of IT to the business.
