I like this version better. At least it is not all "safety critical" oriented.
What about
changing "Financial Systems" by "Information Systems" or have both listed ?

"Financial Systems" is more restrictive than "Information Systems", my
understanding is
that the "Information Systems" of a compagny covers the "Financial" parts but
the "Documentations" parts and all sorts of data used by "Data Mining" systems,
I think "Information Systems" is better suited for you Ada flyer !
