Opinion: We'll keep you informed of goings-on in the "big vertical" of finance—including banking, investing, auditing, forecasting, financial reporting and financial services.

Welcome to the online destination for decision-makers interested in keeping up-to-date on financial technology. Our goal is to create a virtual home both for producers of financial technology and services as well as for buyers. Its been a lonesome few years for the members of this community. Ever since the big push to convert financial systems for Y2K, and the resulting letdown when the world didnt end, its been tough for those in financial tech to get any attention—unless they were going out of business or engaging in high-profile hostile takeovers. Well keep you informed of goings-on in the "big vertical" of finance—including banking, investing, auditing, forecasting, financial reporting and financial services. The news affecting the industry will be updated every day, but well dig deeper and analyze what it all means as well.
Check in for interviews with CEOs of financial technology firms to find out whats coming up, and what factors influence any change in direction. We also plan to write case studies of companies implementing new financial management systems, digging into what went into the decision process.
How much did it cost, how much training was necessary, and would the firm do the same thing again? Send me an e-mail if youd like to join the queue to be featured in either of these reports. If Sarbanes-Oxley compliance has you stumbling in circles, well try to straighten out your path. If your firm has outgrown its entry-level accounting program, well show you alternatives. And if youve got a burning question about financial technology that we can answer, well give it a shot. I plan to make extensive use of my 14 years of experience covering financial technology, as well as tapping into the eWEEK expertise of Renee Ferguson, John Pallatto and others. Come on in and make yourself at home. Check out eWEEK.coms Finance Center at http://finance.eweek.com for the latest news, views and analysis on financial applications and services for the enterprise and small businesses.
