Digitalized Assurance – Next generation Audit
Transparency and control are achieved via data-driven assurance
- Transparency and Control can be achieved through process end-to-end visibility. Because visibility is enabling ownership across value chains, and it fuels sharing of process related insights and data for the prosperity of the company.
- Digitalized Assurance (DA) is an “intelligent” form of real-time monitoring across value chains.
- Digitized Assurance provides financial insights into value chains through data produced in extended ecosystems. It supplements and enhances Internal Audit and Finance functions and provides financial intellect across the organization.
Process transparency and control challenge (eg. service industry)
Often objectives of key stakeholders are conflicting and process interfaces are complex. On top of that, management drives transformation to ensure sustainable growth and profitability.
As a consequence, “financial process end-to-end transparency” is often limited and on “real-time money flow controls” are absent.
