THE ACCCOUNTING CONCEPT AS KEY CONCEPT FOR BUSINESS MODELLING

Coen Suurmond

Abstract

Many problems in IT systems can be traced back to two misconceptions: that all information comes from these systems and that the information from these systems represents reality “as is”. IT systems are often closed and inflexible. Modelling accounting subsystems, as closely as possible to operational practice, can prevent these problems. Current software architecture provide technical support for this approach. In modelling the formalisation and standardisation of the use of language is an important issue.
