An accounting problem that's all too common

Accounting managers and finance project owners are forced to deal with multiple or complex business models, business units, stakeholders, accounting standards, and regulations. Without a common language for modeling and documentation of accounting rules and schemes:

  • Specifications are unsystematically communicated in text documents, slide decks, spreadsheets – even by memory
  • There's no connection between initial data requirements and final parameterization of interpretation systems
  • Teams resort to using their own disparate data repositories and tools
  • Responding to regulatory constraints on tracing and versioning data transformation is highly laborious
  • The results are poor accuracy of existing documentation, difficulties in responding to auditor requests, process inefficiency, and non-compliance with mandatory regulations
