SDAF took an interest on the current survey conducted that measured the effects of emerging technologies in the accounting profession. SDAF also released a list of 5 skills that an aspiring accountant has to be able to compete with the leading accountants and firms.
400 US accountants answered the CCH Technology Survey on the effects of social media, cloud and mobile services on the accounting profession. It was then found out that accountants today no longer needed to be “just” great in Math, but they also need to be knowledgeable with these emerging technologies, as they are continually shaping the accounting profession. Accounting firms are already investing a lot in these technologies, and are looking to implementing software services and enhancements to better reach and help their clients, especially since most of them are using a merchant processing service that also use such technologies.
SDAF looks at this in a positive light; technology, after all, is mankind’s tool to make life easier and to connect with people. SDAF, in relation to this, then released a list of the top 5 skills a person needs to master in becoming an accountant. Before, the skills needed to become an accountant included being good in Math and numbers; but now, one must also be well-versed in the software advancements that the firms use in order to reach out to their clients.
