You can ensure the security of your financial data in the cloud by choosing a reputable vendor that follows industry best practices and standards for data encryption, backup, recovery, authentication, authorization, and monitoring.

Ensure the vendor you choose to work with offers seamless integration that can easily connect to your primary data sources, such as ERP systems, spreadsheets, databases, or cloud applications, and that they are able to extract, transform and load this data into their software platform.

Choose close and consolidation software that is designed to be owned and managed by the finance team. Look for software that enables you to easily adapt workflows and templates to support data collection, validation, consolidation, and reporting, without needing IT or specialist help. Check that you can easily modify rules and validations to ensure the consistency and quality of your data.
