Even if your organization switches to another tool, there is almost no down-side. It’s not -another tool-, just a -different tool-, that can be just as easily tossed if the organization goes in a different direction. Anyone who has tried to process huge data files in ACL analytics desktop knows that the software just chokes.
My ‘no analytics’ choice reflects people who don’t get it and don’t do well even in Excel analysis. I didn’t mean graphical workflows can’t be reviewed, I just find it harder to review because you have to look at a workflow and then click a bunch to see the details. In my dept, people get the details wrong often, so no, I won’t trust what I see in a workflow as the workflows are usually higher level and hide the details. Again, not a design flaw, but a personal preference to review all the details in a script without going back and forth between graphical objects and details. It irks me because our LAN drives are encrypted at rest and in transit, and all across the company, most of the people store all their sensitive files on the LAN.
In the case of audit analytics, ACL are specifically designed to address the shortcomings of existing tools for auditors. If there is a better tool for -your- job then the organization is best served if you use it. The alternative realistic bloxburg homes is to compromise the quality of the work you do. Why buy a calculator, when we were taught arithmetic in grade school? To extend the argument, why not standardize on one type of calculator across the organization?
Regarding your excellent points about command line/graphical, I don’t agree with you. Except that low code allows people who really don’t know what they are doing to do bad work faster. Personally, I don’t expect everyone to have my skills, but they should understand the basics and grow that understanding over time. I don’t think the best future is people selecting dropdowns and options, as I’ve found they don’t typically understand what the output is and whether it is accurate or even close. Yes, low code allows some people to do great work, and there’s a place for that. But I’ve seen too much “oh, all you have to do is press a button” work that’s worthless.
Automate processes and deliver the answers that drive strategic change. Strategically manage risk, demonstrate compliance, and provide executives with visibility, assurance, and confidence. Create a robot KPI, KRI, or KCI to monitor and provide round-the-clock oversight.
But I probably never will because my mgmt already wants to move on to tools used by others in the company. The last thing they want is another one-off tool that only audit uses. It’s hard to disagree with that, as using those tools increase our understanding of the business systems we audit. CCA is an on-going effort to detect controls issues in an organization. Internal controls are designed and implemented by management to prevent fraud, promote regulatory compliance and ensure an acceptable level of business risk is not exceeded.
Audit and Consulting Services adds value to the organization by developing continuous controls audit tests and evaluating the results. When control deficiencies are discovered they are addressed with appropriate departmental personnel for resolution. This promotes cooperation between departments outside the setting of a traditional audit and increases the dependability of internal controls for assessment and reporting purposes. Highbond GRC, designed by industry experts, to create stronger IT security, risk management, compliance, and assurance. Streamline collaboration across organisations using automation & reporting powered by ACL Robotics. To keep the tutorial simple, you will just upload an Excel file to use as script input.
– Can you give me a sense of what you are trying to do that is causing ACL to choke? Specifically, what commands are you running, and where are you reading the data from? That would give me a better understanding of your issue. Not that I’m trying to improve your use of ACL (I still you’ll give us a try), but I may be able to make a suggestion.
You need to save each visualization individually, and also the container that holds them, called an interpretation. Select the Classify_a_monthly_transaction_table script . You want to automate the work so it can run on a monthly schedule.
