Getting Started with Data Analytics using IDEA
Data analytics has been a part of auditing since the 1970’s, initially to primarily organize and streamline “store-audits”. However, today many auditing functions struggle to make the dream a reality. In this workshop, participants will explore real strategies for defining, implementing and maintaining a data analytics program. In a facilitated workshop format attendees will get a chance to use professional purpose built data analysis software – IDEA. While certainly software like IDEA has a reputation for use to handle the big jobs, it is just as easy at handling normal everyday auditing tasks.
