CEO City

CEO City >>   Yearbook 2013 

We, at Siliconindia, constantly interact with finance leaders and professionals across India.

A large number of them are embracing new trends and technologies to streamline their
business process spanning the finance functions: cash flows, controls, costs and risk.

Finance leaders who are at the forefront of embracing change are bringing new approaches to
optimize their talent by adopting the right processes and technology.

Many innovative finance leaders are adopting new breed of finance solutions that leverage
disruptive technologies such as enterprise software (analytics, business intelligence, and
dashboards), automation and straight-through processing, Software-as-a-Service and cloud
computing to bring about transformation in the finance organization/department.

One of the key concerns of the Indian enterprises is the availability of information on finance
solution providers. We have been getting requests from several finance professionals to provide
information on solution providers in India and the competency they bring to table and also for
our insight into our market landscape. Apart from a few large finance solution providers, other
independent third-party finance solution vendors are almost unknown in India. While evaluating,
the vendor presents one challenge, adopting the relevant finance technology solution and leveraging
it effectively requires a well thought out strategy to ensure valuable return on investment with a
clear focus on real business results.

Keeping this in mind, CFO India Outlook 2013 is being published. Our team spent the last six
months to bring out this yearbook wherein finance leaders share what they see as a big challenge
in technology to meet needs of CFOs in 2013, what keeps them awake at night, and what solutions
they look forward to and their expectations from technology providers for the finance sector. This
would be a resource book for decision makers where they can refer to see how their contemporaries
are thinking about similar problems as theirs. This book presents state of finance technology
solutions, services, and processes to help finance leaders and senior finance professionals formulate
a vision for the future of their organizations.

We received over 1000 nominations from finance solution providers across India. A
distinguished panel comprising accomplished CFOs, Chief Risk Officers and Finance Directors
including Siliconindia editorial board have profiled a few selected companies offering products and
services for CFOs to be featured in this yearbook.

We would love to hear your experience in working with different finance solution providers and
how that has impacted your overall business.

We will continue our endeavour to provide you with valuable information to help you embrace
new concepts, pursue new strategies and acquire new leadership skills.

Thank you,
