Foley & Lardner LLP, Proformative, NetSuite Inc., and Host Analytics recently presented "Cloud Computing and SaaS for Finance and Accounting." Foley Partner and Chair of the firm’s Information Technology & Outsourcing Practice, Jim Kalyvas, delivered a presentation titled, “Cloud Computing Risk Management."
Few things are as critical to corporate finance, accounting, and related professionals as our systems. And those systems, from core accounting and budgeting platforms to back office infrastructure, ERP, and CRM, are moving online, into the "cloud," and into an entirely new business model called “software as a service,” or SaaS. This represents the largest change in technology for our profession since the dawn of the Internet.
Attendees learned about the latest in cloud computing and SaaS for finance, accounting, and related functions: what they are, where they can be used, how companies are putting themselves in the cloud, and more, including a focus on risk issues and how to use third-party assessments to build trust with potential services providers. Our presenters provided the latest knowledge on these applications, how you can put them to work for you, and their potential pitfalls.
