On the latest “CXOTALK,” hosted by industry analyst Michael Krigsman, Workday’s President and CFO Robynne Sisco and CIO Sheri Rhodes share insights on why the finance and IT partnership is more crucial than ever. 

As Sisco explains during the latest installment of the series: “It's about the finance and IT organizations coming together to support the strategic objectives of the company, and a strong relationship between the CFO and the CIO will build the foundation for companies to innovate and to grow. That becomes critically important, particularly in a world that's changing as fast as it is today. ”
