According to Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s Chief Executive, Teams is on its way to becoming a digital platform as significant as the internet browser. Speaking in an interview with the Financial Times, he called the cloud software a new “organising layer”, pulling together all the tools a worker needs into a single place, as well as acting as a platform for other developers to deliver their own services.
There is no doubt Microsoft has the potential to revolutionise the way a modern day accountancy firm operates which will lead to improved efficiency, profitability and transparency.
In conjunction with the Digital 100 Alliance we will be exploring this potential and what the future work hub looks like for accountants.
