Technology Survey Drawing to a Close


Today is the final day to participate in the AICPA’s Top Technology Initiatives survey. The survey period has been extended from the scheduled Nov. 26 deadline to 6 p.m. ET on Friday, Dec 5.

           

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the survey, voting for the first time is open to all AICPA members. Prior surveys were limited to AICPA IT Section members, Certified Information Technology Professional credential holders and other external technology professional organizations.

           

The results of the annual Top Technology Initiatives survey offer information about technology initiatives that CPAs anticipate will have the greatest influence on IT strategy, investment and implementation in the next 12 to 18 months.

           

AICPA members can vote at http://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/4e5ag3906e . Participants are asked to provide their AICPA membership number (which can be found on any AICPA mailing).
