Fraud Analytics within Forensic Investigation - DAX Ex Machina & Tabular Editor in an Hour
Forensic Investigations of fraud or financial crimes are confronted with a changing landscape where larger amounts of data are being generated, captured and processed than ever before. Data Analytics can be a particularly powerful technique for managing fraud risks and compliance issues. In this session, we explore how the PowerBI platform can bridge the shortfall between traditional approaches and stakeholder expectations.
Emphasis will be laid on the particular use case where the Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) language in PowerBI serves as a hybrid multi-tool that helps to better understand and disentangle large volumes of transactions. We introduce the audience to a set of typical fraudulent accounting schemes and how a systematic and hybrid approach for forensic investigations can help to rapidly identify red flags in a context where timing is crucial and stakes are high.
This will be a hands-on-keyboard session teaching you how to get started with Tabular Editor to do rapid development with your Power BI data models.
