  • Traditional accountant must move with the times, or it is the end of the road 08 Nov 2018Press release Traditional accountant must move with the times, or it is the end of the road
    PRESS RELEASE 8-11-2018 – In 2020 we will have 40 zettabytes of stored data at our disposal, and it is predicted that after the launch of the ‘Internet of things’ in 2020 over 30 billion devices will be connected wirelessly and continuously exchanging data. In addition, the quantum computer and the latest developments in artificial intelligence point to data processing making great strides. The obvious outcome is a paradigm shift from exchanging documents to exchanging data and this will inevitably have a major impact on accounting information systems and, specifically, accountancy as a profession. This in a nutshell is the theme of the farewell address Professor Verkruijsse will deliver at Tilburg University on November 9.
