As financial controllers and reporting managers grapple with increasingly onerous regulatory reporting requirements, their ability to manage data is key. As companies and firms seek to bring legacy systems into alignment with modern demands, new types of information, particularly around climate risk, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), governance models, and non-financial reporting are being requested.
The movement to cloud-based reporting platforms for statutory financial reporting helps firms optimise how they define, gather and use data to provide high quality regulatory reporting as well as better understand risks and where business benefits are. The missing piece to date has been how to collect, process, disseminate and aggregate non-financial data between all stakeholders, in a trusted, timely and comparable way, which also concretely measures economic, social and environmental impact.
