Finance functions have been transforming themselves in recent years, with the aim to evolve from a "data producer" role towards a "strategic business partner" position for internal clients. This transformation requires switching from reactive to proactive data delivery, analyses and decision-making support for internal clients.

Robotics Process Automation (RPA) has proved to be a major optimization lever for financial activities. In recent years, Roland Berger has conducted numerous assignments in the field of RPA in finance functions across various industries.

In addition, an analysis of the expected evolution of HR need is required.
