Lavastorm Analytics and Ernst & Young Show How to Balance Risk and Reward with Analytics-Enabled Audit


Lavastorm Analytics, a global business performance analytics company, will host a live webinar with Ernst & Young, a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, to discuss how the latest technology and methods in analytics-enabled auditing can drive greater business efficiency. The webinar will take place Thursday, November 8th at 1 p.m. Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT).

Mike Willett, a Director in Ernst & Young Advisory's Enterprise Intelligence team, and Phil Ball, Sales Director for Australia at Lavastorm Analytics, will lead the webinar, “Analytics-Enabled Audit – From Compliance to Business Performance Improvement.” Willett and Ball will discuss how leading organizations are leveraging analytics technology to handle traditional audit tasks more effectively and deliver new value to the business through process improvement. During the webinar, attendees will hear several real-world examples where audit groups have improved the performance of procurement and payroll functions through proactive, continuous audits and agile, process analytics.

Attendees will leave with a firm grasp on:

  • Identifying and quantifying business risk through the use of continuous, pro-active audits
  • Applying value-added audits for maximum benefit in business departments
  • Using business analytics to model and improve complex business processes
  • Ways that audit organizations can become strategic advisors to the business

“Making business processes faster, better, and cheaper can certainly generate greater profitability, but doing so also comes with risks like reduced headcount or eliminated process steps,” said Ball. “The key is maintaining the right balance of risk and reward, which requires proactively monitoring the effectiveness of business controls, and measuring business performance in near real-time. This is something analytics-enabled auditing can provide, becoming the automated eyes and ears of the organization for continuous assessment and detection of problems before they affect profitability.”
