ToT on Data Analytics
Five officials of the RAA are being currently Trained as Trainers on ‘Data Analytics’ at the Tertiary InfoTech, Singapore. The training is an effort to keep abreast of the rapid changes in analysing data in various forms and formats for informed decision making.
The team will be introduced to data analytics, big data and global megatrends. They will also be trained to use the ‘R’ software for data analysis, which covers ‘R Statistics Essential Training’, ‘Advanced R Essential Training’, ‘Text Mining with R’, ‘Machine Learning with R’ and ‘Deep Learning with R’.
The trainers will then prepare course materials and further train other auditors in data analytics, the methodologies and basics of R software to analyse data. With all government agencies going tech savvy, and the growing use of computers and systems it is very important for RAA to be able to understand and analyse data stored with agencies to be able to audit they effectively.
The training program from 26-30 November 2018 is funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation.
