Why big data matters for accountants – a good read

In todays London CityAM paper, page 25, there is a good article: -> “Why big data matters for accountants”.

Some main points for me:

  • When accountants say something is a gold rush you have to believe it.
  • “The ability to link data sets is creating new insights” is in the second paragraph. So event accountants agree that data design is a first order issue.

However, there is no example use case given. Some come to mind, but I would be very interested in your ideas. What are the big data use cases for accountants? Please leave a comment.
