This IDC study provides an assessment of the leading SaaS and cloud-enabled finance and accounting software solutions and discusses what criteria are most important for companies to consider when selecting a system.
"As financial operations continue to become more complex because of regulatory requirements, end users need financial applications to become much more than a repository for data. Organizations must work to turn their financial solutions into a 'system of intelligence' where end users can rely on their financial application for insights rather than just data. To that end, technology vendors are rushing to add artificial intelligence, natural language processing, machine learning, and blockchain to fulfill end-user demand and create the ultimate experience," says Kevin M. Permenter, senior research analyst, Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce.
