I’m an Assurance Associate at an audit firm, working in the UK. I’m looking for ideas/examples of how you could use Alteryx in an external audit context to make certain tests quicker and more efficient.
A few of my colleagues and I have started implementing it for simple tasks, such as filtering transactional data for certain GL codes to generate listings, and formatting, data cleansing and unioning system-generated reports for consistency. Our Data team also uses Alteryx in Journals testing, using a join on the opening and closing TB to search for new GL codes. It then performs a completeness check by summing all the debits and credits from the transactional data to reconcile them to the closing TB.
