Data is a tough nut to crack, but the right tools can unlock crystal ball-like insight. Access, blend, and analyze any data to give you the insights needed to improve performance.

Data is pervasive and so is the BI technology used to analyze it … so why is it so difficult to get started, and what’s holding organizations back from turning data into a competitive advantage? Data access and blending is 80% of the job, but becomes incredibly challenging and expensive when many tools are involved. And knowing what questions to ask your data—in context of your risk and control domain—is critical. ACL technology has been solving these challenges for more than 30 years and is built to provide assurance and performance insight over process, risk, control, and compliance areas.

ACLTM Analytics connects you to any data source, and lets you run sophisticated risk analytics and detect anomalies or patterns that you simply can’t illuminate with any amount of random sampling, spreadsheet ninjutsu, or generic business intelligence. ACLTM GRC Analytics Exchange is all that and more: server technology gives you a centralized platform for collaborative team-based work, automated data extraction and blending with IT-trusted connections, and continuous monitoring. Find hidden anomalies and uncover strategic risks and opportunities—with the big data-crunching power and sustainability of a platform solution.
