New to this Edition

Business process mapping has been entirely overhauled to focus on flowcharts as the process mapping tool preferred by accounting professionals. The new Business Process Modeling and Notation (BPMN) 2.0 is also presented in Chapters 4 and 5 because it is the business process mapping notation preferred in business to meet the simplicity requested by accounting professionals while providing more technical detail than flowcharts to meet the needs of IT professionals.
Coverage of business process mapping using data flow diagrams (DFDs) are moved to Chapter Extensions 4 and 5, available online at www.pearsonhighered.com/kay.
Chapter 6, Enterprise Information Systems, has been updated to include the portion of the enterprise system that is increasingly, in the cloud, with a new section on cloud computing.
Chapter 8, Accounting and Sustainability Intelligence, keeps you at the forefront of sustainability and how it affects your accounting system. Chapter 8 is updated to include coverage of integrated reporting that merges traditional financial reporting and sustainability reporting. Novo Nordisk’s Integrated Report appears in Chapter Extension 8 (available at www.pearsonhighered.com/kay) so you can learn from a leader in integrating reporting on financial, social, and environmental performance.
Cybersecurity, Chapter 11, includes a new chapter extension with two leading IT control frameworks–ISO 27k IT controls and COBIT.
Each chapter has updated assignments prepared by Ali Ovlia.
The latest emerging trends and technologies, such as mobile technology and robotics, are covered in online Chapter 15, to keep you up to date on technologies impacting accounting.
