Unlock the opportunities of integrating ADAs into audit engagements.

Audit data analytics (ADAs) has the potential to transform how auditors perform testing. This introductory, on demand course aims to help auditors move into a data analytics mindset and unlock the opportunities of integrating ADAs into an audit engagement.

Auditors traditionally use analytic procedures such as means, modes, and variance analysis but audit data analytics are much more than summary statistics. This CPA Ontario webinar will define and explore the term "audit data analytics”. The instructor will walk-through ADAs' application, including data visualization techniques using a custom programmed software.

Please note, there will be a final quiz at the end of this course.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Define audit data analytics (ADA)
  • Plan an effective model to facilitate the annual planning process

  • Identify the benefits and challenges of using ADAs
  • Explore the future of ADAs for the audit profession
