up with the Fast Changing Landscape of Financial Technology Solutions”: “With
the fast adoption of cloud computing, a whole new crop of financial technology
vendors have emerged and it can be difficult for a financial professional to
keep up. Fortunately there are resources to help, such as the Proformative
community for finance, accounting, and treasury professionals.” Dover
continued: “The ProformaTECH 2013 conference provided an opportunity to catch
up with innovative providers of financial solutions in the cloud. Attendees
were able to see a variety of product demos and participate in some lively
lunchtime conversation at topic-specific tables.” Dover summarized: “The
injection of creativity that these new vendors are bringing to the financial
applications market and the speed at which they are delivering new solutions
is very exciting.”
