CFO подталкивания? EY Предсказывает Blockchain может изменить C-сюита роль

Big fourprofessional services firm Ernst & Young (EY) suggests that blockchain technology could transform the firm’s finance operations and redefine the role of chief financial officer (финансовый директор) in a report published last week.

Blockchain could revolutionize the way finance function operates,” the report reads. “It will arm the CFO with tools and capabilities to allow him or her to become a key business partner in the strategic planning process while running a very efficient and trustworthy operation.

The report identifies CFO-related blockchain uses cases, noting that the technology can help executives meet objectives such asgetting your house in order,” business development and communication with the external marketplace.

Более конкретно, the report suggests the implementation of a blockchain-based auditing system could fundamentally alter thescope and approach of an audit opinionfrom its existing focus on evaluating transactions toconfirming the validity of digital representation of physical assets and codification of contracts.

Likewise, EY claims the technology could decentralize organization structures, creating network systems which would provide better visibility and integration across an organization.

The report also argues that the transparency provided by blockchain technology could have an impact outside the organization too, allowing competing firms to have access to each other’s information, facilitating a morecollaborative and multi-enterprise environment.

Однако, the authors caution that blockchain is still a nascent technology and, как таковой, its potential is not fully understood. по аналогии, the report reads, “organizations should make sure they are not comparing the theory of blockchain with the practical nature of technology implementations.

There are also obstacles to adopting blockchain-based systems, the authors say, explaining:

“То есть, rolling out a blockchain across all functions with seamless integration would certainly solve a lot of problems, but many of our clients struggle to implement enterprise-wide data warehouses (which would do much of what we say blockchain technology can do), let alone a distributed database or network with all the associated maintenance difficulties.

A paucity of knowledge about blockchain tech is also likely to encumber its adoption, EY said.
