Managing the Transition to International Financial Reporting Standards
Since the early 1970s, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and its predecessor, the International Accounting Standards Committee, have worked to develop a single set of international standards, the IFRS. The world's capital markets ebb and flow continuously, and participants in that marketplace must have access to financial information that faithfully reflects their economic performance, is consistent among companies around the globe, and is governed by a trusted and respected authority of corporate compliance. This white paper identifies the many challenges companies face when implementing International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in corporate reporting. It also explores how Oracle's IFRS-enabled enterprise performance management system can ease this transition. The Oracle solution provides the high level of analysis and transparency that companies need in today's demanding and uncertain global financial reporting environment.
