CEF Big Data Building Block presented at European Court of Auditors event

On 27-28 November 2019, the European Court of Auditors organised the conference on “Big and open data for EU supreme audit institutions”.

The conference looked at the current status of big and open data in audit institutions in the EU Member States.

Big data is high-volume, high-velocity and high-variety information that requires new forms of processing to enable enhanced decision-making, insight discovery and process optimisation.

Around 10 national representatives presented including topics ranging from the usage of text mining in the auditing process by Estonia to interactive visualisation of government open data by Denmark. Please find attached the Draft Agenda for more info.

This event launched TINA, the network of EU surimi audit initiations (SAIs) to work on Technology and Innovation for Audit, enabling all Supreme Audit Institutions to progress together towards auditing more efficiently and effectively in the context of increasingly digital business processes.

All presentations from the event are available on the European Court of Auditors website.
