Latin Trade interviewed Cheryl McDowell, Vice President of Finance & Operations, Latin America at Oracle.
What are the challenges that the CFO of a large corporation faces today?
CFOs are always aligned with the company’s strategies. The challenge is to always be looking toward the future. What we have to do is based on the strategy, and that’s what we have to do to get where we want to go.
What role does technology play in the large corporation?
Since Oracle is a technology company, we have that benefit. But the issue is how to use that technology more, how to be a more proactive company, in which we make the mobile telephones, digital management, etc.
How would you define the advance of big data? How does it help with the day-to-day tasks?
We are developing much more analysis, metrics, and then all the information that we have helps us to have better information in all areas.
