When Data Visualizations and Data Imports Just Don’t Work – Importing data is a dirty job as can painting user final pictures with that data. This webinar will explore the dirty little secrets that ensure data is imported completely and accurately, as well as, painting scenarios when a visualization may not be the best approach to meeting an audit objective. Specific learning objectives include:
- Walk through case studies of “dirty” data and how to improve then using improved data requests and cleansing tools.
- Watch case study examples of top tests to validate data tables to ensure data quality.
- Discover a host of baseline tests and other baseline statistics to validate, understand and possibly extract key trends for review.
- Understand visualization and dashboard types along with their associated analytical strengths from an audit perspective.
- Identify situations where statistics may be more effective audit extractors than relying on the human eye to spot notable events.
