Abstract

Businesses in the twenty-first century are supported by Accounting Information Systems (AIS). Among the most widely known AIS in business organisations are enterprise resource planning systems (ERP) and business intelligence (BI). Newcomers such as cloud computing technology for software, platform and infrastructure services over the Internet have recently become prevalent. These AIS have become more and more significant in the past two decades across departments and business organisations around the globe (Berry et al., 2009). Arguments to invest in AIS are multiple, but two key themes suggested in the literature are the potential for cost saving from improved efficiency and the capacity to support business strategies (Svejvig et al., 2013).
