New ASG Release Helps Global Enterprises to Continuously Audit and Extract Actionable Insights
ASG Technologies, a provider of proven solutions for information access, management and governance, has released Audit & Analytics Services – a software component of ASG’s enterprise information management portfolio – to help organizations intelligently analyze disparate data sources, automatically identify and reconcile costly data anomalies, and maximize business performance.
According to ASG, the policy-based solution scales to automate extraction, verification and reconciliation rules to continuously audit and analyze diverse structured and unstructured sources regardless of type and volume. By discovering and alerting organizations to data patterns, deviations and inconsistencies in enterprise information, Audit & Analytics Services delivers the actionable insights needed to proactively seize business opportunities, protect businesses from fraud and abuse while maintaining compliance with regulations and organizational governance.
Audit & Analytics Services supports accessing and processing data from Apache Spark sources, such as HDFS XML/CSV/JSON, Hive, HBase, and utilizing Spark’s multi-node architecture for distributed processing. This helps organizations not only derive more value from their big data sources, but to reliably analyze, identify and reconcile data issues across Spark and non-Spark data sources.
The new release also enables organizations to define and manage policy-driven data extraction rules and to export data for further processing, making it easier to unlock the value of data housed in high-volume sources for analysis, audit, and compliance needs. It is also possible to share the results data from Audit & Analytics Services with popular business intelligence tools such as Tableau and Qlik for intuitive data visualization and analysis.
Big data enables business opportunities, but only if organizations can draw value from the data at scale, including reconciling it with traditional sources, said Marcus MacNeill, senior vice president of product management, ASG, noting that the new release will help ASG customers systematically find and derive actionable insights from structured and unstructured sources to maximize business performance while also sustaining compliance.
ASG says the new Audit & Analytics Services software also complements ASG’s Mobius Content Services and Enterprise Data Intelligence solutions to manage the information lifecycle from capture through understanding, and delivery via any device; comply with governance and regulations; and discover and analyze data for business insights that drive success.
