Internal Audit Platform

I was reading an Aberdeen report on “The Reinvention of the Internal Audit” which has lots of interesting statistics about internal audits and auditors. What was most interesting for me was that they came to same conclusion as Michael Rasmussen in his post on the the largest GRC vendor – Excel and Outlook (and a little Sharepoint) are the standard Internal Audit Platform – which by default makes Microsoft the largest Internal Audit Platform provider.

It was also interesting to me that they used the term Internal Audit Platform distinct from GRC.

In any case this meshes with what we see with our Audit.Tracker solution – the use of Excel and Outlook is pervasive for internal audits. Given the changes in the regulatory environment, this is going to be a real problem.
