    Main Topic: Forensic Analytics with PowerPivot for Excel

    Main Topic Speaker: William E Pearson III

    Main Topic Summary: Despite the wealth of analytical technologies available today, 65% of occupational fraud at public companies is detected through tips, management review, or simple accidents. Forensic analytics can change this disappointing scenario by employing a combination of human intuition and leading-edge technologies, and can provide superior detection methods to significantly improve the detection and investigation of illegal or unethical activities.

    In this session, we explore forensic analytics: a set of techniques we can use to uncover irregularities in financial data. We also gain an understanding of goals of forensic analytics: to enable us to find out how — and why — these irregularities exist, and to find out their source(s) — especially when fraudulent activity is suspected. We discuss guiding principles that are key to effectively and confidently ferreting out data anomalies, and outline a methodology to meet key principles by applying a standard, repeatable process to forensic analytics. Throughout the session, we view examples of how we can employ PowerPivot for Excel to drive forensic analytics via various tests and reviews.

    Main Topic: New Approach to Build and Test in SSIS using BIML

    Main Topic Speaker: Yoke Wanneevechasilp, American Credit Acceptance

    Main Topic Summary: Business Intelligence Markup Language (Biml) automates your BI patterns and eliminates the manual repetition that consumes most of your SSIS development time. During this presentation, the free BIDSHelper add-in for BIDS and SSDT will be used to introduce Biml and use to automatically generate custom SSIS packages. Additionally, a new approach to unit testing and integration testing will be discussed. This approach uses metadata authored by analysts in Excel to automatically generate testing logic within the corresponding packages or to automatically generate standalone test packages that contain all of the necessary validation logic.
