EY uses leading-edge technology to power and deliver the end-to-end Digital Audit.
EY’s audits are powered by leading-edge digital technology. We understand that by integrating the latest technologies into our audit processes, we are able to provide high-quality audits, enhance the way we look at risk, reduce client burden and provide unrivaled insights.
This helps us meet both our expectations and the evolving needs of businesses, regulators and investors. We invest in innovation because we are ambitious about building a better working world and providing the capital markets with greater confidence, a better business perspective and enhanced transparency.
Technology drives both EY clients’ and our own business. At the same time, a technological revolution that offers so much opportunity also brings with it more complex risks, competition from divergent angles and stakeholder scrutiny that is forensic in focus.
We want to give our auditors the best possible tools to use in their work. By investing in a number of critical tools, we have been able to bring a significant amount of digital innovation to the audit . We have effectively digitalized the end-to-end audit process.
EY Canvas , EY Helix and EY Atlas are the three foundations of our digital audit: EY Canvas is our online audit platform; EY Helix is our data analytics platform; and EY Atlas is our cloud-based knowledge platform that delivers the latest accounting and auditing content.
We are also investing in emerging technologies such as advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, drones and automation.
