How Data Drives Scale in SaaS Operations: Revenue Recognition (ASC606)
Kloud.io
June 17, 2021
With a volatile external market, there is even more pressure on Finance to produce real-time, accurate revenue metrics that empower the business to make agile decisions, navigate pricing and volume conversations, and plan marketing spend in response to changing market dynamics. Business teams cannot afford to wait for information or spend time debating the accuracy or providence of each data source. The onus is on Finance to establish a single source of truth (SSOT) and create a holistic view of QTC data.

For those of us on Clubhouse — what do you remember about the sign up process? A text from a friend? maybe a link? How about Zoom, or Calendly, or Slack? These are the apps that go from ‘New Kid on the Block’ to a central part of your tech stack in light speed. The virality of these tools ensures they remain the darlings of the product-led growth world and are deeply embedded into your daily tech stack — sometimes unintentionally!

The CFO's Guide to a Continuous Close
Kloud.io
May 19, 2021
Monotonous to Continuous – Rethinking the Close Cycle
2020 was a whirlwind year, and in addition to learning lessons from the past year, it is important to be thinking ahead to critical success factors for the year to come. In the world of finance, the biggest impact from the pandemic was felt in the additional demands in planning and reforecasting. More than ever before finance is under pressure to provide high quality, relevant information in real time to support critical business decisions.
The urgency for timely information has shone a light on one of the most fundamental pillars of finance – the monthly process of ‘closing the books’. Every month without fail, finance teams all over the world cycle through a close management process – often working long hours to hit pressured deadlines. Despite the additional effort, the folks at APQC recently reported that the average finance team takes 12 calendar days to get from trial balance to completed management reports. With many financial reports offering a snapshot of the company’s past rather than providing a window into its future, is it any wonder that finance leaders come under pressure to stay relevant?
How did we get here?
To understand how we got here, let’s dust off the history books and travel back to 1494 when a bright Italian mathematician named Luca Pacioli authored the world’s first printed book-keeping manual, earning himself the title ‘The Father of Modern Accounting’. In it, Pacioli outlined the system of debits and credits we know today as ‘double-entry bookkeeping’.
Over 500 years later, this modern accounting system remains at the core of finance ERP systems around the world. Think of the changes our world has undergone in the past 100 years, and yet finance is reliant on a system built in the Middle Ages. Was it Einstein who said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results? Pardon me, Mr Pacioli, but it may be time we had a fresh look at ‘modern accounting’!

Reward & Motivation in the Age of Technology
Medium
May 08, 2021
The world of work is changing — and so are our expectations. Job loyalty is a dying concept, flexible work is gaining traction, and despite on-site baristas and free lunches, more than half of employees would prefer to work from home. Something is missing from the equation lately and it has less to do with demanding millennials and GenZ’ers than you think!

Never before in our history have so many technological advancements emerged in parallel, and in combination, carrying so much impact. A decade ago, smartphones did not exist. Three decades ago, the world wide web was launched – and the world as we knew it changed forever. Each new generation of technology stands on the shoulders of its predecessors, and if it feels like the pace of change is faster than ever, that’s because it is! We are in the midst of a period of profound and rapid advancements in technological capabilities – and if we are to believe the hype, it’s not about to slow down within our lifetime.

Pay it Forward

September 28, 2015
Last week, I lay on the floor of a children’s hospital in Dublin, listening to my young son breathe deeply in his induced sleep. The rise and fall of every breath serving as a powerful reminder of the miracle of respiration. The blackness of night was interrupted only by a blinking green light reassuring me of his heart rate. The soft silence interjected by the beeping of a drip in his arm, and the tip-toeing of a compassionate nurse intermittently checking his temperature with the latest non-contact thermometer. Not for the first time, I was struck by the many technological wonders that we enjoy in this life.
