Training Session 4: Intro to XBRL Global Ledger Framework - Part 2

The Global Ledger Framework is an extensible set of modules that can represent the underlying details of operational, business and accounting systems in order to support end reporting, as well as to facilitate ERP integration. In this hands-on session, the beginner will build on the skills learned in session I and learn more about the “Building Blocks” of XBRL GL, capable of being assembled to meet the representational needs of ERP integration, consolidation and archival. (This session assumes familiarity with the materials in session I.)

There are no pre-requisites for this course.

Laptops/Notebooks: Trainees must provide (no computers will be provided). A list of recommended software will be provided in advance of the course.

Instructors: Gianluca Garbellotto, Iphix & Eric E. Cohen, PwC
