Firms have had to shift from the local and traditional modes of doing business and embrace technology and innovation to meet the ever-dynamic customer needs as well as maintaining their competitive advantage.

The value of the traditional accounting has thus been phased out based on the technological advancements, curbing fraud, need for faster transactions, redundancy, and competition.

In the new technological and innovative world, the Syst Trust, Risk advisory and the Web Trust will be successful. The dynamism of business transactions has made it easier and faster to do trade through the internet with most services being transacted online. The online transactions of services require urgency, privacy, and transparency. Computer hacking and internet fraud have been on the increase. Many firms have suffered loss of information and funds.

Therefore, the need for quality will determine the achievement of any firm (Aceituno, September, 2005).
The technological advancements involve the utilization of software and the assurance of its quality as the significant steps towards business success. The firms mentioned above will succeed, as they will be able to provide its customers an opportunity to have privacy for their information. This implies that the firms’ strategies and modes of transactions will make them maintain competitive advantages. The firms will keep the data regarding their customers private, and thus, increase customer loyalty and trust (Dhillon, 2007).

The software will secure information and keep off hackers and fraudsters. All the systems that are used can be maintained thus records and data contained their in will be up to date. The firms will incorporate innovations that will make the software secure and free from hackers and fraudsters.

The assurance reports will also provide information on the performance of firms regarding their transactions (Beynon-Davies,2004).

The need for the technological globe is not only to have the ability to control and the assessment of risk but also to have innovative control measures that give the firm an upper competitive advantage. It must help the firms win the affection and trust of the clients by assuring them of confidentiality and security of their data and finances.
