DAFs confirm the emergence of a new category dedicated to liquidity management

This study confirms that the most digitized companies are drawing the outlines of new practices in terms of liquidity management.

CFOs can thus provide decision support to their operational partners by exploiting data thanks to Artificial Intelligence and APIs. We are witnessing the birth of a new category of software – Enterprise Liquidity Management », said Samuel Guillon, Director of Strategy at Kyriba.

Overall, the results of the study show the growing importance of liquidity for financial executives. The CFO is becoming a liquidity champion driving transformation through data-driven operational decisions. Financial leaders demand systems that aggregate, analyze and disseminate data. This demand leads to the emergence of intelligent platforms, built on API technology and unified data management. Research shows CFOs recognize the need to invest in the tools, skills and resources needed to manage liquidity across the enterprise », said Kevin Permenter, Research Director, Financial Applications at IDC.

He adds : “PFor publishers, this is a unique opportunity to help CFOs in the evolution of their role. Overall, we estimate the potential market for Enterprise Liquidity Management software to be $30 billion in 2021. But the longer-term opportunities for software vendors are far greater. ».
