Campaign Image - The Future of Cloud for Finance - The Risks of Hybrid, Hosted & Managed Cloud

For instance, Gartner the analyst firm says nearly half of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments by the end of 2017. But for the unwary this presents a significant risk to data integrity and reporting.  Gartner also offered an alternative vision by announcing the era of “post-modern ERP” in which it is envisaged

How Cloud Accounting Software Can Support The Area Review Transition

The further education area review process has driven a great deal of change in a short space of time that requires new ways of thinking and operating. Whilst government initiatives such as ‘Cloud-First’ and ‘Digital by Default’ help public sector organisations provide more effective services with fewer resources, it’s challenging to overhaul internal systems, processes and technology.
