“One of the five technology choices that CFOs tend to prioritise in boosting productivity, efficiencies and faster decision making in the fast paced business environment include a social platform that monitors trends, customer sentiments and helps process mashable data for customer centricity and business growth,” he said.

Khan was speaking ahead of the eighth annual CFO Strategies Forum, scheduled to be held in Dubai on October 22 and 23 the Park Hyatt Hotel.
