ASG’s Audit & Analytics Services Enables Global Enterprises to Continuously Audit and Extract Actionable Insights from Content and Data

Last week we announced the new release of Audit & Analytics Services.  It is a software component of our enterprise information management portfolio. ASG customers use Audit & Analytic Services to help organizations intelligently analyze disparate data sources, automatically identify and reconcile costly data anomalies, and maximize business performance. Enterprise information is riddled with incomplete or inaccurate information that makes its way into organizations’ business systems, applications, audit reports and even public-facing documents. Our software helps organizations ensure this bad data doesn’t fall through the cracks and disrupt their digital transformation initiatives.

The policy-based solution uniquely scales to automate extraction, verification and reconciliation rules to continuously audit and analyze corporate information regardless of type, source or volume. By discovering and alerting organizations to data patterns, deviations and inconsistencies in enterprise information, Audit & Analytics Services delivers the actionable insights needed to proactively seize business opportunities and protect businesses from fraud and abuse – all while maintaining compliance with regulations and organizational governance.

Audit & Analytics Services now offers advanced capabilities, including:
  • Big Data: Supports accessing and processing data from Apache Spark sources (e.g. HDFS XML / CSV / JSON, Hive, HBase) and utilizing Spark’s multi-node architecture for distributed processing.  This helps organizations not only extract more value from their Big Data sources, but also reliably analyze, identify and reconcile data issues across Spark and non-Spark data sources.
  • Data Extraction: Enables organizations to define and manage policy-driven data extraction rules and to export data for further processing.  This makes it easy to unlock the value of data housed in a variety of high-volume sources for analysis, audit and compliance needs.
  • Data Visualization: Easily share the results data from Audit & Analytics Services with popular business intelligence tools such as Tableau and Qlik for intuitive data visualization and analysis.

Big data represents tremendous opportunities for organizations if they are able to extract value from that data at scale, including reconciling it with traditional sources. Audit and Analytics Services helps ASG customers systematically find, understand, trust and derive actionable insights from structured and unstructured sources to drive business initiatives, optimize performance and sustain compliance.

Organizations that use Audit and Analytics Services can also benefit from:
  • Accurate and Complete Information Management: Enforces information management policies to ensure data integrity exists within and between systems, sources, and platforms.  Regardless of the data source (e.g. database, file, report, website, print stream), the solution automatically compares and validates targeted information across all data types and processing cycles.
  • Business Intelligence: Creates powerful data analysis models to search through high volumes of corporate structured and unstructured data to intelligently find and anticipate new customer trends, identify new services to deliver, and to optimize customer experiences.
  • Risk Mitigation: Reconciles financial data generated by multiple sources for accuracy prior to posting, thus reducing the risk of inaccurate financial statements and reports that can result in fines, penalties and reputation damage.
  • Compliance: Employs policy automation and continuous scanning to ensure compliance with diverse regulations including Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
  • Lower Costs and Increased Productivity: Automates identification, notification and resolution of business process exceptions, including accelerating root-cause analysis, enabling employees to focus on more strategic value-added tasks.

Audit & Analytics Services complements ASG’s Mobius Content Services and Enterprise Data Intelligence solutions to effectively manage the information lifecycle from capture through understanding and delivery via any device; to comply with governance and regulations; and to discover and analyze data for business insights that drive success.
