A recent IIA article on building an analytics function in internal audit is dead wrong.
At least on one major point, anyway. And it’s a big one.
As the tombstone reads, this point is D.O.A (dead on arrival, or more specifically, dead on analytics).
The article, Building a data analytics program, requires IIA membership to view, and is located at https://iaonline.theiia.org/2017/Pages/Building-a-Data-Analytics-Program.aspx (that’s actually good, as it means a lot fewer people will ever read it).
Two years ago, I posted Firefox May Already be Dead, which predicted the death of Firefox by Chrome.
Blogs are clamoring for proof that Osama Bin Laden is dead–show us the photos! However, I do not think Osama death photos are needed, at least not to prove he’s dead. I also think that keeping this event in mind can help move your audits along. Let me explain.
