Finally, a key problem noted is in how information management and change subsystems used in organizations still have not adapted to that level of integration that would help them. Not all organizations are well integrated, some of them are seen to be more loosely coupled and others are seen to be properly integrated. This affects the learning curve of accounting personnel employed with the organization, specifically with respect to the information technology solutions that are used.
Finally, not all organizations might have change management practices in place recognizing the implementation of newer technology as having a significant impact on organization. This leads to issues for the personnel who are not prepared. Technology is developing rapidly and when organizations attempt to make use of accounting related information technology connected to legacy systems then they are sure to become unproductive. Nevertheless, when they attempt to change their infrastructure and more as to meet external demands, then they might end up creating problems for their internal stakeholders, such as the accounting employees in the company. Both obsolete software’s and software’s that are high end providing state of the art functionality could be considered as threats for the employee. Technology must be up to date, but so should the assistance provid to the accounting personnel to make use of such technology. Given this background context, the purpose of this research is to present the perceived challenges of accounting personnel when it comes to rapid development and use of information technology in their companies. What form of impact happens and how they could be assisted in surviving the impact will be at the core of discussions.
The research method made use of in this work is a qualitative method of research. The qualitative method of research helps in collecting opinions of participants in a more holistic way. The research data collection processes used here is an interview process and most of the questions are open ended. There are some close ended numeric questions that also included, in order understanding how many participants believed in challenges in the use of information and technology subsystems in operations
