How Should a CFO Be Looking at Data?

It was a relatively short time ago that databases played only administrative roles in most companies. Today, needless to say, data is fundamental to most companies’ very products.

Meanwhile, these databases have enabled the “as-a-Service-ing”‘ of countless industries.

SaaS models, in all their flavors, emphasize repeatability at scale, and they rely on large, complex databases to keep demanding customers happy. They also contain the record of your strategic performance.

Should the modern CFO be thinking even more broadly than she currently is?
