Us auditors like to go to conferences. The last time I was at a conference run by QLIK and they were showing so many amazing dashboards and I was feeling really inspired by them, I couldn’t wait to get back to the office and start using their new swanky diagram, I could think of so many applications for. But then at the coffee break, I talked to a few fellow auditors and I realized that at least half of them were a bit lost about it all.
One of them said to me, “does the dashboard come with the data already in it?”
So I realized that actually since I’ve been doing data analytics for 20 years it’s become second nature. We forget actually that people don’t necessarily realize what a “table” is, what’s the difference between a “record” and a “column”. I remember back to my first years’ in data audit when I was trying to figure out what a pivot table is. It sounds silly to me now, but it is not. It’s just because I want familiar at that time. Things were not clear to me.
So you might be thinking that data analytics dashboards are a bit out of your control. Maybe you should just outsource it, or avoid it.
