Why Use IDEA
Technology touches nearly all aspects of our work. It has become almost impossible to conduct an efficient and effective audit without the use of data analysis technology. In fact, current audit standards suggest using data analytics because it allows the user to look at data from different angles to gain greater insight into the organization’s or client’s business activities. Additionally, data analytics are used by financial and tax professionals for reconciliations, operational analysis, and to identify unusual activity within massive amounts of data.
With IDEA® - Data Analysis Software you can quickly import data from almost any source, perform 360° analytics to dig into the root cause of fraud and abuse, communicate your results and automate repeatable tasks. Its intuitive user interface includes point-and-click functions, help windows, tutorials and multi-view capabilities. IDEA offers unique capabilities not found in other analytics solutions, such as unlimited file size, impressive speed, and the ability to access and analyze large volumes of data in seconds.
