The Benefits of Oracle Autonomous Data for Finance

January 25, 2021

The finance function is evolving rapidly – traditional finance roles are disappearing and being replaced by emerging finance roles like data scientists. It is estimated that only 30% of the future finance workforce will focus on traditional finance tasks and 70% will be data experts connecting with the wider business and spend 75% more time on data analysis.

Oracle Autonomous data warehouse (ADW) can help finance departments accelerate decision-making, achieve faster reporting times, and gain greater insights from a wider range of datasets. With Oracle Autonomous data warehouse (ADW), finance can improve visibility into their processes and find answers to complex questions such as:

  • How is regional profitability evolving?
  • Why is this product line less profitable?
  • How is transportation impacting our bottom line?

However, while integrating data into your finance department presents a great business opportunity, it also poses many challenges. Studies show that only 39% of finance leaders are highly confident their organization can manage their data to generate meaningful insight and only 43% of finance leaders are highly confident in their data security.
