In today’s constantly changing world, many CFOs of growing enterprises find themselves standing at a crossroads. As generative AI, economic uncertainty and global conflicts fuel rapid change, you’re charged with the task of balancing caution and prudence with an enthusiasm for innovation and future technologies. You must exercise patience and restraint as inflation and interest rates soar while pressing forward on a thinning budget. You must also navigate the complex world of IT support while making smart decisions that align with your role as a true steward of the organization.

Dominant players like Oracle and SAP seek to make you their customer for life, and you may feel trapped in a perpetual cycle of IT software upgrades and migration. You might feel pushed from on-premise applications to the cloud or forced to pay higher contract fees for downgraded support and then wonder how to escape the current state of affairs.

Thankfully, third-party support offers a welcome alternative to the challenges of costly, restrictive IT ecosystems. While Oracle and SAP focus on software development and a push toward the cloud, third-party providers have one sole focus: improving the service quality and breadth of existing software. They align with your values as a visionary CFO, allowing your organization to grow and innovate, rather than trapping you in a cycle of inflexibility and ever-rising costs.

In the guide, you will learn how third-party support can benefit you, including the call to innovate, scale and transform, regain control, organization-wide benefits, key considerations and more.
