[IMGCAP(1)]For accounting professionals and consultants alike, the past year has been filled with talk of the cloud, mobile and compliance and I daresay we're in for more of the same, but with a few additions to our regular vocabulary.

For one, I think we should start by saying that mobile is a term that may well merge with or eclipse that of "the cloud," because well...let's face it this is where the majority of daily business data will end up. To put it in brief, "the cloud" will be where most data will be and mobile is how you will access it, be it a phone, ultrabook, tablet or whetever the device du jour may be; it will in fact be mobile. As such, expect this year to be filled with announcements around your favorite -- and some new -- back office or accounting-related tools being optimized for mobility or more likely emerging in app form.
