Whether you are an Auditor currently wading in technology back-waters or you are currently utilizing Computer assisted tools to undertake audits it is crucial to understand how the source data is originated, structured, manipulated, stored, safe-guarded and utilized to produce meaningful information. To this end it is necessary for Internal Audit to understand how Application systems are designed and structured as this will form the basis for appreciating and using Data Analytics in auditing.
