The goal of this article is to recognize challenges the industry 4.0 lays before the corporate management and members of financial markets, with particular consideration of financial management and risk management aspects. New technologies change business models of enterprises, simultaneously creating new opportunities to change the financial function. New categories and technologies like data science, machine learning, or artificial intelligence create new paradigm for financial management, which can be called finance 4.0.
