Multi-billion dollar scandals have rocked the business world in the first years of the new millennium. Companies such as Enron and Woldcom were the major reasons why the Sarbanes-Oxley act became a law. Affecting not only the business world but the IT industry as well, the Sarbanes-Oxley required publicly traded companies to set IT controls and general documentation processes in their accounting and audit systems. Microsoft, with its certifications training for MCP, has already presented office solutions for companies to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley act.
The Sarbanes-Oxley act ensures that publicly held companies are fair, informative and independent in the preparation of their audit documentation and reports. With Microsoft providing technology automation, a qualified MCP can address important Sarbanes- Oxley requirements for its clients and customers in a low-cost, high-quality solution.
Since many companies are now using the MS Office platform, Microsoft solutions for Sabanes-Oxley builds compliance infrastructure on the familiar Office and Windows- style platform. A person with an MCP background can have the advantage of alleviating company fears for IT investment because they are assured that the MCP is qualified to handle Microsoft systems and technologies. The MCP can integrate Microsoft solutions because they have the required expertise to handle Microsoft products and platforms.
The Sarbanes-Oxley act mandates that top executives and senior management to closely monitor and examine the assembly of financial information across the infrastructure. They are required to manage processes and documentation controls over the entire lifecycle of the process. A qualified MCP can streamline the work of the executives in order for them to easily store, retrieve and manage their compliance requirements.
