An announcement

Hi everyone,

Life is getting way too busy over the last few months so I’ve come to a decision. Rather than blogging 3 times a week I’m going to reduce it to twice a week. I’m doing this for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I’d rather do less and increase the quality. Secondly, you may have noticed that over the last several weeks I’ve been missing a post here and there. I’d much rather say that I’m going to do less (i.e. twice a week) and stick to that rather than say I’m going to do more and not be consistent! I hope you understand 🙂

So from today I’ll be posting – every Monday & Thursday (Australian time).

In my last post I mentioned that I wanted to unpack the two big trends which make the whole compliance market not what it used to be. These trends are:

  1. The acceptance of the “cloud” by many businesses including government departments and the big end of town.
  2. The surge in the use of outsourced services as indicated by the popularity of sites such as odesk, elance & freelancer. These sites have a created a global market for anyone to buy services ranging from bookkeeping up to network administration.
To do the above justice – I’ll start unpacking these over the next two posts.
All my best,
James E
