Across industries, businesses are facing unprecedented challenges to deliver growth and profitability in an increasing dynamic environment. To rise to this increasing pressure, CFOs in these organizations are looking to more robust financial management.

Perhaps the biggest question lies with the CFO of a small and medium-sized organization. He or she will need to decide whether to select ‘best-of-breed’ applications or a software suite as they look to optimize the technology foundation for their processes. Which approach will deliver the features and suitability-to-task and the greatest overall business benefits?

Join us as we debate the software suite vs. best-of-breed solutions approaches. Understanding the tradeoffs has never been more critical.
