Improve Audit Operational Efficiency and Produce Quality Outputs

In a business environment that is changing at a faster rate than ever before, internal audit needs to innovate and transform itself to be prepared to provide assurance on complex and data-rich operations. Oftentimes, auditors are hindered by tedious manual workloads that take up too much time and energy. Implementing new technologies such as data analytics and AI can reduce errors in data verification and reporting outcomes, creating capacity for internal auditors to take on strategic assignments to help organisations respond to today’s challenges.

How to analyse entire populations of data in significantly less time?
How to drive continuous audits and real-time response to anomalies?
How to manage associated risks in the leap to intelligent automation?
