[Webinar] Microsoft Hong Kong: Reimagine Finance with Data and AI

Events Details (Code: 210326LU-CEX)

 
Companies across all industries have turned to technologies to maintain business resilience and agility amid the global pandemic. Cloud Computing and Big Data have become the corner stone for business success. Covid-19 has accelerated digital transformation globally. As Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, said, “Two years of digital transformation happened in two months.”  However, with constraints from compliance and regulatory bodies, bringing changes to finance has never been easy. Yet this is exactly why digital transformation is crucial. By modernizing and automating financial operations with the right technology, finance professionals will not be hindered by legacy systems and tools but can monitor performance in real time and effectively harness the power of data to drive insight, predict future outcomes and business impact. 
 
In this webinar, Ms. Vyin Ng, Chief Financial Officer of Microsoft Hong Kong and Macau, will share how Microsoft has improved the consistency of data, efficiency of reporting and accuracy of financial forecast with tools like Microsoft AI, Power BI and Analytics. She will also share Microsoft Hong Kong’s very own transformation experience on moving its financial data to the cloud, combining it with business metrics, and working with cross-functional teams to create powerful, dynamic synergies, moving finance front and centre to business success, as well as fostering a compliant environment.
