There’s little communication between finance functions in different businesses, so it's not often we can glimpse at what the future holds for businesses collectively. CIMA has built a vast collection of research into a composite picture of what the finance function in a digital world looks like, with an overarching white paper:

Re-inventing finance for a digital world’ which helps to understand the future needs of businesses and employers globally in a digital world. To gain insight into the finance function and explain how new competencies for finance professionals are emerging in a digital world.
