Data analytic tools help auditors scale their audit tests over the entire data population with minimal or no increase in time and cost, generating analyses and evidence with laser precision. However, the output is only as good as the input. Data preparation is a critical step in the analysis process, one that can be time consuming without proper know-how. Our expert instructor will walk you through the steps to import, cleanse, format and profile data to extract maximum value and deliver meaningful insights. Attendees will return to work with a better understanding of how to improve data quality in IDEA.

  • Understand why data quality is integral for professionals applying data analytics in their engagements
  • Learn techniques such as cleansing, formatting and profiling data to extract maximum value
  • Validate the data to ensure high levels of accuracy
  • Test data correctness, timeliness, relevance and completeness
