Becoming More Efficient – How finance and IT are leading the way

Thought Leadership Team

Oxford Economics

Oxford Economics and SAP Concur surveyed 1,700 finance and IT executives about how they are making their functions more efficient.

Finance and IT executives are under pressure to accomplish more tasks in the same amount of time. Rising inflation, recession fears, lingering and resurfacing impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, demands to increase sustainability, and finance and IT executives’ growing importance in setting overall company strategy are forcing them to increase the efficiency with which their departments tackle every task, from setting broad strategic goals to the minor details of implementation.

To better understand what the most successful finance and IT executives are doing to lead their organizations forward, Oxford Economics and SAP Concur surveyed 1,700 finance (60% of the survey sample) and IT (40%) executives worldwide at organizations with more than 1,000 employees.
