The swell of big data has increased pressure on audit professionals to analyze larger amounts of data to uncover fraud, potential threats while keeping up with changing regulatory requirements. This becomes even more challenging with the added expectations that the audit shop of the future needs to combine predictive analytics to plan for unexpected risk, apply continuous monitoring and use visualization to communicate with management.
