A Maturity Model From Data Analytics to Continuous Assurance


Most organizations take a "tactical and technical" approach toward leveraging data analytics in planning and executing audits and therefore are unable to realize multiple benefits of data analytics-enabled auditing.

However, with a more "strategic and transformative" approach that involves all the business stakeholders, data analytics-enabled auditing can be made more effective and sustainable.

The paper also explores a maturity model and benchmarking characteristics to depict the maturity of five phases of an audit methodology.
