Introducing DEXT — the Deeply Embedded XBRL Toolkit for data integration, internal and external reporting, data monitoring and auditing

While the benefits of XBRL in terms of data transparency, cost savings and greater efficiencies in handling data are widely recognized by data consumers (regulators, analysts and investors), businesses and not-for-profit organizations are not typically looking at XBRL to achieve the same benefits internally.

XBRL, XBRL GL, SBR…

If you look at the program of the upcoming 22nd XBRL International Conference you may notice that the traditionally offered XBRL Global Ledger training will be a little different this time.  On Sunday May 15 Eric E. Cohen and I will present the usual introduction to the basic “why and how” of XBRL GL – why it is necessary, where it fits and how it works. On Monday May 16 though there will be an additional session focusing on the role of XBRL GL in supporting XBRL adoption, especially in non-strictly financial statements oriented compliance –...
