Disruptor No. 1: CFOs seize control as the IT decision makers

Thanks to the cloud, there has been a fundamental shift in power from the chief technology officer (CTO) to the chief financial officer (CFO) in terms of tapping innovative technology to drive business process optimization. CFOs are now key technology decision makers, and innovative SIs need to refocus their approach, skills and offerings on specific solutions that address core business process challenges. These range from unified financial budgeting and planning to effective measurement of business growth.

The growth of the "integrated enterprise" depends on connecting disparate cloud systems to make them work for today's dynamic business environment, and innovative systems integrators (SIs) will be the catalyst. The cloud is transforming the SI focus from implementation/customization to long-term business solutions that deliver the agile, future-proof technology roadmaps that today's C-level executives demand.

Executives from top business consulting firm Armanino and data integration experts from Scribe Software share their take on the five disruptive forces changing the game for leading systems integrators and how they need to evolve to make the most of the new cloud realities.
