Accounting IT Trends for 2009

CPA Technology Advisor’s Richard Oppenheimer says 2009’s most important technology trends for accountants will be:

  • Virtualization
  • Tax document automation
  • Streamlined sales tax
  • Mobile access — smart phones, Gobi, 3G
  • Cloud computing — mesh, etc. and
  • Portals

“The emerging reality is that accountants have to know about technologies — ones they use along with planning for ones they are about to use,” he says.

For those who don’t mesh from mush, the column is a quick read that covers some of the biggest trends going on in accounting IT.
