Abstract: In our constantly changing economy, it is crucial for a business to be able to stay flexible and responsive with the information it gathers, processes, and provides. Due to this fact, the relationship between information technology (IT) and businesses has grown tremendously through the years. One of the newest concepts from IT is cloud computing. This service allows for the connection of multiple devices to servers around the world from any location with an internet connection. Cloud computing has started to secure a foothold in the accounting software market. While the users of this new software are increasing every year, many firms and businesses are still cautious on making the switch. This paper will mitigate the concerns of accountants about the software by addressing how the software works and the various advantages and disadvantages that it provides to a firm.
