The Shift Toward Predictive Accounting

Wed, Nov 7, 2018 @ 06:06 AM / by David Fellers posted in CEO perspective, predictive analytics, Thought Leadership, analytics

Accounting has traditionally been a backwards looking profession.  Let me be clear that I did not just call accountants backwards people, but in general their mandate has been to document, audit and verify what has already happened.

However, things are changing rapidly in the world of accounting.  As I covered in a recent blog post on The Changing Role of the CFO, there is a major shift toward broader and more forward-looking responsibilities within the Office of the CFO and the accounting profession in general. 

Some of the forces helping make these changes a reality are 

enterprise-wide integration of advanced analytics, unifying financial information in a single-source-of-truth, movement toward continuous-close processes and the rise of Machine Learning.

Financial automation: turning compliance into competitive advantage

Fri, Nov 2, 2018 @ 03:00 PM / by John Froelich posted in financial transformation, Thought Leadership

Today’s CFO is bombarded with buzzwords and talk about the latest and greatest trends in corporate finance. The typical finance professional is usually occupied with more practical considerations. Buzzwords aren’t high on the agenda when some new regulatory control is fighting for your attention or you’re busy keeping an eye on the bottom line.

Still, those buzzwords and trends persist. It’s little wonder that finance pros are confused by it all.

Here are a few such terms you might have heard of:

  1. Predictive accounting – using accounting to predict revenue.
  2. Machine learning in finance and accounting.
  3. Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

It’s natural to ask whether any of this matters. Is it worth devoting mental bandwidth to these new trends?

This post is a summary of why I think these trends may be relevant to you, and how getting onboard now can help you add long-term value to your organization.

Tue, Oct 30, 2018 @ 05:17 AM / by Bramasol Financial Transformation Team posted in financial transformation, Thought Leadership

Are you struggling with implementing big-picture compliance solutions on a limited budget?

Did time and cost constraints force you to adopt RevRec compliance with short-cuts, spreadsheets or brute force manual calculations - leaving you with a dead-end "solution"?

Do you face similar no-win trade-offs with regard to new Lease Accounting changes coming in January 2019?

You're not alone.  Lots of small to midsize companies are grappling with difficult compliance issues.

According to Compliance Week, RevRec Still Has a Ways to Go

Tue, Oct 16, 2018 @ 10:02 AM / by Bramasol RevRec Team posted in revrec hot-tips, revenue recognition, ASC606, Hot Tips

A recent article in Compliance Week paints a different picture from people who think that adoption of Revenue Recognition per ASC 606 is behind us.  Even though the new standard took effect on January 1, 2018, the issue of compliance as seen by auditors and the SEC is now just ramping up.

Public companies on calendar year accounting have now completed two quarterly filings under the new standards but the first year-end filing under the new standard is still some months away.

Some highlights from the article include:
