With the advent of San Francisco™, object technology can seriously be considered for commercial enterprise applications. Much more work needs to be done in explaining why object technology will be important to business users. In accounting, for example, objects—and San Francisco frameworks in particular—provide elegant solutions to some of the problems encountered in conventional accounting information systems, particularly in the general ledger area. They also support an approach for generalizing accounting systems, allowing them to become models of the business enterprise rather than merely systems of accounts, ledgers, and journals. Such systems will support a much wider spectrum of management and analysis needs than conventional systems.
