Outcomes, Outputs and the Problems with Large, Complex Systems

Salesforce's VP of Strategic Research, Peter Coffey, wrote an article for Diginomica last week about the pitfalls that any group or organization can fall into when trying to measure the success of any effort - a tendency to measure activities rather than outcomes. He points out that new products, like Salesforce.com, and processes are connected as never before, and can make it easier than ever to measure actual accomplishments. Our old and flawed assumptions, however, may be embedded deeply enough that this will require a change in mindset.

How We Work: Social Collaboration across Processes and Departments

We began a series of articles about How We Work nearly a year ago, where we touched on the history of workflow, the effect of technology on workflow and collaboration, and the impact of social media-style collaboration software on how we work together. Right around the time we posted about social media and collaboration tools, we began to use and experiment with Salesforce Chatter here at AcctTwo.

Project Accounting - The Way We Weren't

We recently blogged about cloud-based or SaaS software and how, with its ability to release frequent new updates and to get valuable metrics and feedback about its user-base, our expectations as users should be very high. This led us to consider how one of our offerings, Intacct, has changed over the years and proven that SaaS software really does allow for frequent, feature-rich updates and added functionality. It's nice to look back at how we've changed over the years. Last week, we took a look at reporting dashboards and how the UI has changed over the years. This week, we want to look a more functional change - an extension of the software to help project-based businesses, and an example of what best-of-breed software can offer over a suite-based approach.

You'll hear this topic referenced as best of breed, best in class, software ecosystems, or as cloud or SaaS software integrations. What does all of this mean? We'd like to share a white paper with you that will hopefully shed some light on the subject and why it really is important to you and your business as you put together the software tools you need to be successful - particularly financial management software.

The Benefits of a Best-in-Class Cloud Accounting Solution

The massive growth in cloud computing has primarily been driven by best in class systems – think Salesforce.com for CRM, etc. In the on-premises software days, “all in one” suites helped reduce the massive integration hassles stemming from multiple deployment platforms and trying to move data from system to system. The cloud changed all that.

Switching to the Cloud: Integrations and Best-in-Class Systems

Prior to coming to Intacct, many of our customers were challenged with integrating their premises-based system with other business applications. Today, an accounting and finance system needs to work with the best business applications in the market in order to save you time, money, and headaches. Most on-premises accounting systems were designed a generation or two ago to stand alone. They weren't made to integrate with the sophisticated, automated software we use to run businesses today.
