Understanding the 21st Century Accountant

Frequently I hear that cloud technology and anytime/anywhere accounting is here now, it's great, it's what all accountants should be using and encouraging their clients to use, and this new technology will free the accountant to do what he or she was actually trained to do. But exactly what is that? Many accountants, particularly small practitioners, actually were trained to do compliance work - trial balances, write-up work, tax return preparation. Automate these services and what have you got left?
