Technology is revolutionising how we work. The major driver of this change is cloud computing which is enabling not only companies. With cloud computing, accountants are now able to gain access to business intelligence almost real-time and they can then use this to advise clients. Access to the information online also means that this advice is based on real-time information. On-line access has the added benefit of encouraging greater collaboration between businesses and their advisors which in turn leads to better governance.
