Analytics is the key to unlocking future potential.

CFOs need to work with CIOs to convert analytics into an enterprise-wide capability. The need to improve analytics capabilities and data management is the top driver of collaboration between CFOs and CIOs based on findings from an EY survey of 652 global CFOs. But only 53% of CFOs say that they make a significant contribution to determining where analytics can add most value to the organization.

“Companies don’t have analytics challenges or opportunities. They have business challenges and opportunities, which analytics can play a role in tackling.”

— Chris Mazzei, Global Chief Analytics Officer, EY

Five success factors for CFO-CIO collaboration on analytics:

  1. Take a business-led approach, not a technology-led one
  2. Make data a fourth pillar of the business, and leverage it as an asset
  3. Do not forget the human element of analytics
  4. Build the right organizational structure and governance framework
  5. Consider legal, regulatory and trust issues throughout the journey
