Nadine Kater, spoke about the force driving change for the accountancy profession at Big Data World Africa last year.
In her presentation she discussed that there is potential to use intelligent systems, data mining and predictive analytics to exploit the repositories of âbig data' that firms are amassing and as a result transform both the operational and interpretative elements of accountancy.
As automation spreads through every aspect of business and private life, vast quantities of transactional data are being amassed.Tools will increasingly become available to enable mining of this data and the prediction of future possibilities on the basis of past patterns of events. Advances in the sophistication and power of mobile devices, such as tablet PCs, are also driving a revolution where these tools are becoming an essential part of our personal ecosystem.
