Using Workday to Drive a New Auditing Paradigm
A Use Case prepared by Robin Basham, Director, Internal Audit and Compliance, Ellie Mae, with supporting commentary from Kendall Tieck, VP Internal Audit, Workday
The situation and complication…Companies and organizations are deploying Workday to increase business performance and to assist in achieving key objectives.
However, auditors, armed with little information about Workday’s business and internal control value, struggle to transfer their legacy ERP knowledge to the workflow-enabled platform.
Implications and call to action…
While auditors address the learning curve, a burden emerges that slows the business from fully realizing the efficiencies that Workday delivers.
By improving the auditor’s knowledge and understanding of Workday's internal control capabilities and its inherent auditability, companies can not only control costs associated with auditing but improve the auditor’s ability to contribute business value.
