XBRL US National Conference Features SEC Filer Best Practice Training & Tools, Plus IT Forum, September 15-17, Bellevue, Washington

NEW YORK, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- XBRL US announced today that it will hold two events this Fall in Bellevue, Washington, as part of its annual National Conference.   A 2 ½ day conference, Current Developments in XBRL Financial Reporting for SEC filers, September 15-17, will focus on public company accounting professionals; the XBRL Data Forum, a one-day workshop to be held on September 16, 2014, will center on the use of XBRL-formatted data for IT professionals. Both programs will  take place at the Hyatt Bellevue in Washington and will feature keynotes including Taylor Hawes, General Manager, Corporate Finance & Services at Microsoft.

Current Developments for SEC filers will cover recent changes in regulation and industry affecting corporate disclosure, and the latest techniques that public company filers can use to improve the quality of their XBRL data and leverage the availability of corporate financials in XBRL format.  Sessions will concentrate on how SEC filers can manage problem areas in XBRL reporting such as handling specific disclosures, working with the more challenging financial statements, like OCI and shareholders equity, as well as effective use of the features of XBRL to best present their own financials.  A second key area of focus at the conference is on how filers can leverage the new corporate financial data sources available, with case studies and reviews of corporate XBRL data tools, who uses them and how. Updates on Accounting Standards (ASUs) and on new XBRL Implementation Guides produced by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) will be covered to ensure SEC filers have the latest, most current information that will affect their XBRL creation process. CPE credit will be available for most sessions.

"With more than 3 years of historical corporate data in XBRL now available for thousands of public companies, we're seeing numerous new, inexpensive analytical tools on the market that serve up data on a virtually real-time basis," said Alfred Berkeley, Chairman, Principal Capital Management, and Chair, XBRL US Conference Advisory Committee, "At this conference, SEC filers will hear updates and new techniques on XBRL filing and they will also learn about tools they can use in their own analysis for financial planning and investor relations."

The XBRL Data Forum is a one-day workshop featuring technical sessions for project managers, developers, technologists, and IT professionals. Interactive sessions and discussion groups will feature demonstrations and presentations on techniques to handle XBRL data and databases, covering topics such as formula techniques, normalization, validation and analysis.  To encourage SEC filers to learn more about the emerging importance and use of their data in analytics, XBRL Data Forum sessions will again be open to attendees of the Current Developments conference.  

"The availability of free, accessible XBRL data has made it possible for emerging data and analysis providers like ours to innovate and thrive.  The Data Forum provides the kind of networking opportunities and technical insights that spark ideas for new products and features," said Swaminathan, CEO, Iris Business Services Limited.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Video experiences should be unique and exciting! But that doesn’t mean you need to patch all the pieces yourself. Users demand rich and engaging experiences and new ways to connect with you.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
