Eric E. Cohen profile

Cohen Computer Consulting (under construction)

This is the web site of Eric E. Cohen, co-founder of XBRL and "chief nut" of XBRL's Global Ledger, and the past and future home of Cohen Computer Consulting. My primary technical interest is enabling the Seamless Audit Trail and empowering growing businesses with accounting and audit data standardization. I serve as an Expert to the ISO/PC 295 Audit Data Collection effort, and am an Accounting and Audit Domain Coordinator for UN/CEFACT. I also participate in national ISO/TC 307 Blockchain and Electronic Distributed Ledger mirror committees.

For training and consulting in emerging accounting and audit technology topics, I encourage you to contact me for how Cohen Computer Consulting can provide support for your organization to cope with and benefit from emerging accounting and audit technologies:

Thanks for all those who emailed their support for the Accountant's Home Page! From 1994 to 2000, this site led you to accounting links. After 17 years of working for a fine CPA firm, Cohen Computer Consulting will be reemerging; this site will be in progress. Listen to Journey
