CPA Voice: Accounting transformation offers opportunity now

Written on Feb 17, 2022

OSCPA members are ready to navigate the accounting technology environment, but many have yet to adopt the technology tools they need to do so. 

That was one of the takeaways by Donny C. Shimamoto, CPA, CITP, CGMA, founder and managing director of IntrapriseTechKnowlogies LLC, after he was a guest at OSCPA’s October Town Hall session. Shimamoto wrote about his conclusions as the feature story for the January/February issue of CPA Voice

“As an advocate for accounting transformation, this dichotomy is one that I’ve seen many times – people saying that they are ready but haven’t taken action to ensure adoption of the new technologies and business practices needed to embrace this transformation,” he writes.

“OSCPA is working to build out its accounting transformation curriculum in 2022,” he writes, “and as the Inspiration Architect for the Center for Accounting Transformation (, I’m pleased to be collaborating with the OSCPA team to bring more transformative programs to Ohio Society members in the coming year.”
