Accountants typically spend a great deal of time in the compilation of ?nancial statements for compliance purposes and for
measuring the historical performance of a company. However, all of the data in the balance sheet and income statement is

Cloud computing has become one of the biggest buzz topics in the modern business world. Many have lauded the cloud as
one of the more transformative technological innovations in recent memory. An increasing number of companies are shifting

If you have recently been to a seminar, attended a conference or webcast, or read a white paper or blog, you have most likely heard about
cloud technology as it relates to the accounting profession. Cloud technology is an enabler that allows a business to shift computing power
from local networks and desktop environments to a remote off-premises computing environment. Ef?ciency of operations is enhanced by
removing the burden of managing networks, upgrades, and information technology operational issues.
