An AICPA survey found that nearly 40% of CPAs see themselves as catalysts for clients adopting innovative technology, such as cloud computing and mobile devices. Meanwhile, 43% will respond to clients' requests for assistance in assessing and implementing emerging technology that can help business leaders make better decisions. "[M]ost of these companies need a tech-savvy business adviser to help them take advantage of these opportunities, and that's a role CPAs are uniquely qualified to fill," CPA2Biz President and CEO Erik Asgeirsson said.
