25th Anniversary North American Top Technology Initiatives Survey

The 25th Anniversary North American TTI Survey was a joint effort between the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada). This is the 25th anniversary of the AICPA TTI survey and CPA Canada's second year participating.

The survey, conducted in November for the U.S. and March for Canada, was based on responses from 3,061 AICPA members nationwide and 256 Canadian respondents who are interested in information technology. This year, the survey is structured to dive further into the core concerns and priorities that AICPA members may have regarding information management and technology.
