Technology Adoption rates of cloud and mobile accounting solutions are going through the roof, but for many small businesses the cloud is still a scary place to store data and operate a business.
A big part of the resistance is that today’s internet lacks a “trust layer” to provide security, identity management, and data validation.
The next frontier in accounting technology will be filled with increased automation of transactional data, global commerce solutions based on digital currency and blockchain technology, and renewed focus on security and identity management.
In this session, Doug Sleeter will open your mind to the compelling technologies that will drive solutions in the future. As Doug says, your ability is important, but it’s your agility in business that will determine your ultimate success. #AgilityTrumpsAbility
