What makes my work exciting?
As digitalisation progresses, demand for cost efficiency, enhanced security, greater transparency and fact-based decision-making is exploding. This has refocused companies’ finance functions and is revolutionising auditing. Auditors are changing from quality assurers focused on the past to data agents.
How has the industry changed? What are the challenges of the future?
Auditors need to understand the objectives and priorities of the finance function in detail to conduct their audits and select the right tools from their digital toolbox. In this way, an audit team made up of digital experts and process, system and financial auditors can pave the way for the finance function’s digital transformation. Only those that actively and boldly take digitalisation in hand will be able to translate the potential it offers for the finance function and auditing into sustainable outperformance.
