Pandemic and industrial revolution 4.0 made almost of all business activ-ities and professional moved to digital way. People have to adapt to work with many innovations that emerge in the field of business which they work, include accountant. The era of digital disruption made the funda-mental role of the accountant taken over by system or software. This phe-nomenon raises anxiety for a number of accountants, because their jobs are replaced by system, so companies can reduce the number of workers which classified as accountants. Whether the accountant will die along with the development of technological innovation? Certainly not. Ac-countants are required to be agile-learners who enrich skills with the aim of managing creativity and reasoning so that they are able to create infra-structure, platforms, and digital software that can control the automation in business. The functional role of accountants is increasing, not only in financial reporting system proficiency, but especially in strategic business analysts with the help of business intelligence as the basis of decision making for business. Keeping financial data and confidential information safe and secure should be the top priority for any business.
