Outsourcing vs building an in-house team: Practical insights to help you make the choice

Chris will examine the developing role of the finance function in supporting daily operations, complying with statutory requirements and enabling business growth. This analysis will include identifying the function’s core tasks and the attributes required to fulfil them. The objective of this session is to clarify the role and value of the finance function and to highlight the trade-offs that exist when choosing to outsource or insource. Critically, Chris will also examine how effective entrepreneurs relate to the finance function and how the balance between outsourcing and insourcing may evolve through a business’s life cycle.

New engine of growth: Digitisation

Digitisation is playing a big role in transforming our nation and part of this transformation is to encourage the use of technology. To catalyse growth and innovation, we need to harness digital technologies and benefit from them to become more competitive. An obvious area to drive transformation is cloud-based technology – the ability to effectively collect, manage and use technology solutions and platforms to their advantage. While business leaders understand that cloud computing offers obvious and immediate benefits for most enterprises, they also need to know that—done right—Software as a Service (SaaS) implementations pay off in both good times and bad. Learn how to differentiate true cloud offerings and how you can fuel this new engine of growth.

Keynote: Big data and AI: The future of business

Ms. Mah Kam Lin’s presentation on the application and usage of data for long-term strategic planning purposes. Data is a flexible, contextual and sensitive resource that can be used to draw micro-scale insights or macro-scale conclusions and inferences across wide markets, demographics and industry segments.However, it is important to distinguish between false leads and conclusions based on pertinent findings. Business leaders, movers and shakers must learn the importance of sifting through random correlation to find insightful causation - a task which can be optimised with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI).Conclusions can also be drawn from incidental and auxiliary data that do not immediately appear to provide useful information, but can be modelled to find implicit connections producing valuable results and actionable programmes.This keynote session will take place in the Digital Innovation theatre.
