From the Paper:

"Accounting information systems in the new era of business has changed all aspects of accounting and reporting. Since the advent of the computer and the Worldwide Web technological changes have reshaped financial management and accounting. Workstations running applications can now instantly provide standardized data entry, inventory accounting, and financial worksheet inputs. We find the new accounting information systems provide a great deal of information and a real time control environment. They now change the way internal controls are implemented and the type of audit trails that exist within a modern organization. The lack of traditional forensic evidence, such as paper and journal entries is now replaced with a more accurate and updated form of accounting."
