How technology changes workplace culture

financial planning, PLANNING ANALYTICS | [fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Often when companies attempt to use new technology in their business, they don’t consider how it will change the culture of their workplace.

The very reason technology solutions, such as financial planning software, are implemented in an organisation is to solve a particular problem or series of problems with the current way of doing things.

Naturally, this means the new technology will affect the current processes in the business.

And, to make the implementation effective, staff will have to embrace these new processes.

For financial planning solutions, this culture change must be led by the CFO and incorporates important areas like processing and valuing data, gatekeeping, and building transparency.

EDC Use Case: A missed Opportunity and A Significant Risk

A Missed Opportunity and A Significant Risk


In this increasingly data-driven world, companies that are able to turn their data assets into results, revenue and growth are the ones getting ahead.


However, most companies have no idea what data they have and where it is.

A recent study of US IT and IT security professionals found that 62% of respondents are most concerned by not knowing where their organisations’ confidential or sensitive data is located.


And, even if they do know where it is, it’s unlikely they know its quality and whether it’s suitable for analysis.
