Explore audit innovation with Deloitte AI Robot #5

Differentiate for greater value

Innovation has no end. Today, we continue the "Differentiate" session from our last issue, sharing how audit innovation adapts to the times and delivers distinctive value for businesses while driving digital transformation. We know that many businesses are striving to continuously enhance their information-based and digital operations and improve their process and risk management. As a result, they increasingly expect third-party auditors to create better and greater value beyond traditional audits of financial statements. Collin, I believe you have a lot of hands-on experience of this, would you mind sharing more with us?

Sure! At Deloitte, we use our keen insights on market trends and expertise in industry development to offer advice for businesses to enable planning and development of digital finance and operations. We also leverage innovative technologies to help them address risks, capture business opportunities, and improve overall business management.

In response to market and client needs, we have integrated leading-edge technologies, such as big data analytics and AI, and developed a series of innovative digital assets that offer proven approaches, standard processes and professional insights. We aim to combine traditional audit with innovative concepts and deliver multi-dimensional audit value for clients.

Driven by the core of audit and the value derived from it, Deloitte uses advanced methodologies and technologies to support experience-based observations and perceptions to advice on the development of digital finance and operations for businesses. We have built an audit value chain that helps businesses enhance risk management, improve business processes, and guide business development strategies.

Client feedback

Risk control manager at a large Chinese joint-stock commercial bank:

"We started applying Deloitte's banking data analytics platform in our annual audits in 2018. The platform is able to smoothly connect with our systems, process and analyze tens of millions of entries on corporate and retail credit records, and dive into and present the main transaction activities and potential risks in credit business from multiple dimensions. Its ability to process data in real time and mine risks is very impressive."

We always work hand-in-hand with our clients, understand their issues and serve their needs. We constantly reflect on our commitment to audit and reinforce our focus on services. Deloitte strives to build credibility in corporate financial statements while creating more possibilities for clients to derive value from audit.
