Wherever You Go, There You Are: XBRL Trends

Three years after the SEC mandate that registrants file interactive data, we are beginning to see several trends emerging. The XBRL industry is undergoing a sea change that is forcing significant shifts in how XBRL data is created. As part of that sea change, registrants are taking a proactive role in compliance; from element selection to performing the tagging themselves. Compliance is one thing, using XBRL data in financial decision-making is another. Join Steven Posey as he discusses the state of XBRL data and its likely future.
