MIA strongly advocates for digital transformation to future-proof the profession and accountants, ensuring their relevance in the IR4.0 digital economy.
Via technology adoption and immersion in a digital culture, accountants would be able to support businesses of all sizes across all sectors in the digital economy, including the public sector, more efficiently and effectively.
Technology adoption by the profession is guided by MIA’s Digital Technology Blueprint and 3-year Digital Technology Implementation Plan. This is supported by MIA’s strong focus on upskilling accountants in the core technologies that have the most impact on the profession: big data analytics, cloud computing, automation and artificial intelligence.
MIA Digital Technology Blueprint
Launched on 13 July 2018, the MIA Digital Technology Blueprint outlines 5 driving principles that guide the Malaysian accountants to respond appropriately to digital technology. The Blueprint also sets out the MIA’s roles in supporting members in the 5 principles, which entail educating and upskilling MIA members and accountants in Malaysia on emerging core areas such as big data analytics, cloud computing, automation and artificial intelligence.
