Finance Webinar series

The past years have brought significant technological transformation in the areas of financial transaction processing, accounting, and reporting. Many campuses are seeing a shift towards “software as a service” as an IT-risk mitigation strategy and a way to access the most state-of-the-art technology in today’s marketplace. Two Ontario universities who have recently undergone a transformation of research accounting into two different cloud-based environments share why the cloud was selected and what benefit it has brought to the researchers as well as research administrators. The presenters will provide an honest view of the challenges encountered through the planning, implementation and post go-live phases.
