Showing accountants how to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution


By the end of this event the participant should:

  • Be able to look at technology as an enabler;
  • Understand ways to move forward with minor tweaks; and 
  • Understand how to thrive in times of distress.


The Fourth Industrial Revolution also known as 4IR or Industry 4.0 is a phenomenon that has been with us for some time now. 

But what is the Fourth Industrial Revolution and why should you care?

4IR is the growing utilisation of new technologies that are disrupting the way we have always done things and more importantly, how we conduct business. These technologies include robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing. As an accountant you will no doubt have seen how most accounting software is becoming cloud based. 

Practitioners who had embraced at least some of these technologies in their business processes before COVID-19 are not facing major disruption to their operations.
