It has been some time since I updated my blog - due in no small part to pressures of work and other life incidents getting in the way. But I am glad to say that my muse has found me again and encouraged me to return to my keyboard.
A Day in the Life of an Internet Accountant
Experiences and practicalities of SaaS and Cloud Computing from an ardent supporter and user.
At an international conference of accountants recently I was told the following story:
For those who are regular followers of my blogs, my passion for all things cloud will be well known. I have been writing for some time about how the Cloud is the way to interact with your clients and that accountants need to get on board or loose out.
As many of you will know, I am a self-confessed and unashamed techno geek. If something can be done using the latest gadget, that’s for me, irrespective of other – possibly quicker – ways of dealing with it.
One of the first questions that invariably get raised when I speak about the Cloud is..."is it secure?"
I had a busy couple of days last week - on Wednesday I chaired one of the morning sessions at the 3rd Cloud Computing World Forum at Olympia and on Thursday I led one of the breakout sessions at the Accountancy Age Best Practice conference. Both were enjoyable and interesting experiences.
So Wolters Kluwer has acquired Twinfield, the Netherlands based online accounting provider. Wolters Kluwer who have CCH, the current owners of what was Viztopia, in their stable have made the first foray into the Cloud acquisition arena - others will surely follow.
