Data analytics can produce interesting results. They help to identify problems in processes, to reveal cases of fraud, to trace weakpoints in master data, and to recognize many other abnormalities or peculiarities. Nevertheless, results alone are relatively worthless if not properly processed for presentation, and made accessible to persons empowered to make decisions. But not only sharing is of great importance, you must also think of the "how". If you just send your result tables with hundreds of fields and thousands of data records, dealing with them is bound to be a patchy affair.
The German Institute of internal audit (DIIR) had already its 9th symposium on “Anti-Fraud-Management” on 15th and 16th of March 2018 in Düsseldorf. Of course we joined the event also in this year and took opportunity to present our solution to everyone who was interested in a solid data analytic solution. Besides we enjoined to meet people already working with ACL and dab software and questioned them on their experience.
In an earlier blog you will already have read about self-assessments with ACL GRC. This time I would like to expand the topic a little, because with the questionnaires in the ACL GRC results module you have many more possibilities than "just" a self-assessment. Basically the results module enables you to organize and visualize, monitor and resolve events identified by data analytics results. This is where questionnaires play a central role. So we will take a detailed look at them:
Our cooperation partner Rödl & Partner will host the second family entrepreneur day / Start-up convention in Bielefeld on April 9th 2018. This year's Information Day will be dedicated to Generation Digital.
In addition to the very current and future-oriented lectures Rödl & Partner is represented throughout the event with the exhibition stands Africa, America, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe as well as Northern, Western and Southern Europe. In addition, Deutsche Telekom, Microsoft, crypthor.net and the dab: group will be present.
The modern business environment is in a constant state of flux, presenting new challenges for risk management within companies. Risk management must keep pace with the developments. Equally, controls must be repeatedly assessed to check that they are still relevant. These self-assessments are often performed using Excel, which is an extremely time-consuming and error-prone method. However, it is now possible to perform tool-based self-assessments using ACL, and to store the results directly online. This blog post discusses self-assessments using ACL and explains how you can shelve the tedious Excel-based query process.
This year the 9th Anti-Fraud-Conference will take place in Düsseldorf at march. It´s offering an interesting spectrum of subjects all around intern revision - from cyber crime to fraud prevention all the way to a speech about the possibilities for a better collaboration in the company.
We are looking forward to every visitor at our booth!
In this blog post, I will discuss ways in which you can use data from SAP® systems to obtain information about your data. Although the article is fairly technical because it deals with meta data, I will use brief examples to illustrate specific issues. To begin with, I will describe the starting point, before drawing on selected examples to explain how the Data Dictionary can be used, and then ending with a brief conclusion.
