"A Little Code Goes a Long Way" an article about XBRL and other trends in IT and its impact on finance

Colleen Osborne (a Marquette student graduating in May 2012 who is dual majoring in AIM and IT) just published an article titled "A Little Code Goes a Long Way" at http://www.mu.edu/~owt/ITSO/ITSOV5No4.pdf


Colleen, a co-president of the Marquette student information technology group - dubbed ITSO, writes about topics related to IT and the financial markets. Her last article: High FREAKquency: The Clash of Silicon Valley and Wall Street has been one of the most frequently accessed articles of 2011 on the AIM program blog.


This article about eXtensible Business Reporting Language, or XBRL, talks about an important aspect of technology’s influence in the financial sector. Marquette's Dr. David Krause and MU alumni J.J. Foley (General Electric) and Armintas Sinkevicius (Morgan Stanley) are quoted in the article.
