With the ACL Fall Release 2018 the product portfolio was extended by a new product. The new product combines the previous products consisting of Analytics and the Results Module with a fully automated script management, the so-called robots. It enables the evaluation of data and the automation of tasks, either in the cloud or on-premises. Officially this product belongs to the audit management platform ACL GRC. It allows the control and administration of robots via the web browser in the ACL Launchpad.

The “Gartner Data & Analytics Summit” took place in Frankfurt on 23 and 24 October 2018. My fellow director Martin and I attended this event to learn about current trends in data analytics.

As you may have seen, we have added a new product, dab:AnalyticIntelligence, to our website. This blog post describes the product and how it differs from our existing solutions with which you are familiar. The blog has been written by Ernst-Rudolf Töller, with whom we have a longstanding, trusting and collaborative relationship in research and development matters. I hope you enjoy reading the blog – please contact us at any time if you have any questions.
Digitization is also making its way into internal auditing.
