The most significant progress noted after the emergence of the internet has been cloud computing. This paradigm, that is very useful especially for organisations, involves the delivering of computer infrastructure or software that are accessed as a service over the Internet. In today‘s competitive marketplace, customer experience is fundamental, and cloud computing is a proven mean to ensure a high level of service. ―Clouds are remodelling the way that people and institutions collaborate, communicate, share and store information and the manner that they obtain IT resources or services for their personal or professional use.
The accounting field has proven to be receptive towards cloud-based solutions and has already begun to exploit them. Cloud solutions for bookkeeping were among the first applications that were available as online services and could make accountants’ job easier. In fact, accounting applications are some of the most complex among all types of business software. Financial software can ensure different functionalities for specific markets, thus meeting distinct needs and budgets for entities of all forms and sizes. It is against this backdrop that ICPAK has organized a 2-day Work:
