In order to ensure maximum compatibility with our clients' systems today and in the future, AuditSystem/2 integrates Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu's own proprietary software with technologies from Microsoft and other leading vendors. Running on the Microsoft Windows 95, 98, and NT platforms, and incorporating Microsoft Office '97, AuditSystem/2 makes extensive use of Microsoft's COM (Component Object Model) and Active X® technologies. These technologies allow us to provide various aspects of commonly needed system functionality, including compound documents, custom controls, data transfer, and other software interactions.
AuditSystem/2 also provides data analysis and analytical tools to extract useful information from raw data and provide business condition insights. These tools include ACL ® (Audit Command Language) for file interrogation, which allows direct access to computerized client data, and STAR (Statistical Techniques for Analytical Review), to identify significant fluctuations in financial data that warrant further investigation. STAR provides an objective and rigorous basis for reliance on analytical procedures and helps our auditors understand underlying data relationships within the business.
The result is a smooth integration of the best technologies and tools available, customized to our unique specifications.
