Think of audit data analytics (ADAs) as "the science and art of discovering and analyzing patterns; identifying anomalies; and extracting other useful information in data underlying or related to the subject matter of an audit through analysis, modeling, and visualization."
Simply put, you can use ADAs to perform a variety of procedures to gather audit evidence in your next financial statement audit.

Each chapter of the guide focuses on an audit area and includes step-by-step guidance illustrating how ADAs can be used throughout the financial statement audit.
