Time to take a quiz?

14 May 2019

CIMA has launched a new learning resource centre and fundamental series to help all finance professionals take advantage of the growing opportunities emerging technology presents to the finance function and their organisations. The new resource centre provides free learning covering the ‘fundamentals’ of digital disruption – automation, blockchain, cyber security, data analytics and ethics.

Designed to help develop a digital mindset, the topic blocks come on stream from April through to October 2019. A quiz for finance professionals is also available to test their current level of knowledge and see how they compare to their peers. Go to https://quiz.cgmastore.com/

The first set of resources cover Automation and provide a great understanding of Robotic Process Automation (RPA). This area is streamlining finance and reporting processes, driving human interaction with technologies and repurposing the roles of management accountants to focus on value creating activities.

Building on the first theme of digital disruption, new resources will become available on:

- Blockchain (May).

- Cyber security (June).

- Data Analytics (July).

- Ethics and the challenges posed by new technologies (October).

The resource centre was developed through the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (the unified voice of CIMA and the AICPA).

The full resources (free to students and professionals) on the A,B, C, D of digital finance can be found at: https://www.cimaglobal.com/Future/resources/#article1
