Many senior finance executives want their department to play a more strategic role in the management and operations of their company. They believe there is value in shifting their focus from processing transactions to higher-value functions in order to be able to make more substantial contributions to the success of the organization. Continuous accounting can serve as the foundation for transforming the role of the department.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines
that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network.
Often referred to as “things” or “edge devices”, these intelligent machines
connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway,
enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal
valuable insights about these objects and the business processes
they’re part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations.
Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case.
Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity,
and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions
over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are
resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing
power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique
security and management considerations.
Safeguarding your data is more important than ever.
In today’s data-driven business landscape, companies are using their data to innovate, inform product improvements, and personalize services for their customers. The sheer volume of data collected for these purposes keeps growing, but the solutions available to organizations for processing and analyzing it become more efficient and intuitive every day. Reaching the right customers at the right time with the right offers has never been easier. With this newfound agility, however, comes new opportunities for vulnerability.
With so much riding on the integrity of your data and the services that make it secure and available, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for unexpected events that can wipe out your physical IT environment or otherwise compromise data access. The potential for natural disasters, malicious software attacks, and other unforeseen events necessitates that companies implement a robust disaster recovery (DR) strategy to
AP automation doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. By supporting your efforts with streamlined technology and hardware, a small amount of training, and open communication, automating AP operations can actually be very simple.

Today’s data, and how that data is used, have changed dramatically in the past few years. Data now comes from everywhere—not just enterprise applications, but also websites, log files, social media, sensors, web services, and more. Organizations want to make that data available to all of their analysts as quickly as possible, not limit access to only a few highly-skilled data scientists. However, these efforts are quickly frustrated by the limitations of current data warehouse technologies. These systems simply were not built to handle the diversity of today’s data and analytics. They are based on decades-old architectures designed for a different world, a world where data was limited, users of data were few, and all processing was done in on-premises data centers.
In today’s world of being “on” 24/7, data centers are at the core of business and viewed as the way to create competitive differentiation. Speed, efficiency, flexibility, and scale are now critical for winning the race to meet new connectivity and processing demands caused by the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data.
