IDEA® Server is the perfect blend of technology, performance and usability

Analytics have never been this powerful, and easy-to-use.

Accelerate performance

As data keeps on growing, you are facing more challenges with ever increasing complexity and limited IT resources.

With IDEA Server, analytics are accelerated by powerful server based processing, allowing users to simultaneously perform their audit tasks.

IDEA Server saves you time by bridging the gap between your desktop and data center. Access and analyze data on demand, all within a secure server environment. The right data is always available.

When results are readily available, you can respond quickly to errors, anomalies, and fraudulent activity.

Protect your analytical assets

All departments share a vested interest in the organization’s success, but when facing data access and management challenges, IT departments may be concerned about sharing data access outside of the data centers.

IDEA Server meets these challenges by providing seamless data access to users while enabling IT to secure and optimize data management:

  • Data is centrally stored in a secure server environment and streamed to the desktop based on user access.
  • Restrictive permissions can be easily set to eliminate unauthorized access to audit project data.
  • User access is controlled through direct integration with Microsoft® Active Directory.
Speak from the same data

Data redundancy is a common and costly problem for many organizations. It distorts the facts and delays decisive and corrective action.

Isolated databases and spreadsheets are too often the norm, creating deviating views, rather than a realistic version on records.

IDEA Server stamps out data redundancy by providing a single point of access to data drawn from multiple systems. Source data is never moved, altered, duplicated, or deleted, so you and other users can make decisions based on accurate information.
