Even after implementing a data analytics function, many internal audit departments struggle to provide larger insights to business executives. The results are too often esoteric, narrow or complex. Because of this challenge, investments in data analytics technology can fail to deliver a sufficient return on investment.
This fundamental problem has led to the meteoric rise in the use of visual analytics and dashboarding tools. Visual analytics is not simply depicting data in graphs and charts. Visual analytics is a method of interactive data exploration, allowing you to see the results of the analytics, and then further explore and analyze the reasons behind the results. Visual analytics is a means for understanding data, enabling you to leverage data to come to informed conclusions.
