In a new research report, Agile Finance, Unleashed: The Key Traits of Digital Finance Leaders, the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants and Oracle surveyed 700+ senior finance executives globally to track their progress across key metrics – including adoption of AI, advanced analytics, process automation, and machine learning.

The results: finance leaders know that digital transformation and emerging technologies are key to achieving operational excellence, digital intelligence, and business influence. Yet only 32% of respondents have made enough progress to be described as digital finance leaders.

So what gives these leaders an edge over the rest?
