New Value for the CFO: The Evolution From Consolidation to Group Accounting


The need for software support in the “Office of the CFO” is growing. Companies with group structures are expanding existing solutions for consolidation to include additional areas such as ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), account reconciliation and others. At the same time, the focus will remain on classic topics such as planning and management reporting.

Given this background, the aim of the study is to describe the transition from consolidation solutions to group accounting suites – including the current level of progress along this road, as well as the priorities and demands of real-world users.
