This month, I have been speaking with the CFOs of software companies to gain a better sense of how the finance function operates in this industry, as well as the benefits that these CFOs’ companies’ products offer to finance professionals across other sectors. For the second part of this series, I spoke with Sue Savage, CFO of Blue Yonder, whose software specializes in supply chain management, manufacturing planning, retail planning and operations. In addition to delving into Blue Yonder’s market position and how software is impacting the finance field, I also asked Savage about how increased automation has transformed the role of the finance professional, and what this has meant for her as it related to business strategy. I also asked about the challenges she has faced as a female CFO, and how these challenges serve as a catalyst for rethinking the way organizations operate.
