Scavuzzo says harnessing data is an integral part of unlocking value for clients and the organization, but it requires a different skill set than most accounting firms have today.

As tedious tasks are automated away, new recruits are afforded the opportunity to get into the heavy lifting more quickly, which also appeals to their hastier career goals.
