IT Testing and Consulting

Doing busi­ness to­day is in­con­ceivable wi­thout IT sys­tems. But those sys­tems are gro­wing more and more com­plex. The core task of in­for­ma­tion tech­no­logy (IT) is to sus­tai­nably sup­port com­pa­nies’ busi­ness pro­ces­ses. At the same time, de­mands on IT sys­tems’ se­cu­rity and avail­abi­lity are con­stantly on the rise. IT sys­tems that play a si­gni­fi­cant role in ac­coun­ting are also sub­ject to spe­cial le­gal re­qui­re­ments for cor­rect hand­ling.

Our ex­perts in the Eb­ner Stolz IT Re­view unit will ana­lyze, eva­luate and op­ti­mize the com­plex in­ter­play bet­ween busi­ness pro­ces­ses and IT sys­tems as well as a com­pany’s in­ter­nal con­trol sys­tem. We take a close look at IT sys­tems re­le­vant to fi­nan­cial re­por­ting in terms of not just their pro­per ope­ra­tion for the pur­po­ses of an­nual fi­nan­cial state­ments, but their com­pli­ance with re­qui­re­ments of law, in­clu­ding tax laws. We dis­co­ver weak points, eva­luate risks to your com­pany, and thus en­sure that your IT sys­tem is both safer and more re­li­ably avail­able. Of course you can also call on us if you’re con­cer­ned there may have been IT se­cu­rity bre­aches and vio­la­ti­ons of in­ter­nal IT re­qui­re­ments.

Our team, which co­vers all of Ger­many, in­clu­des spe­cia­lists with ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence who also sit on the boards of the In­sti­tute of Pu­blic Au­di­tors (IDW), the ISACA in­ter­na­tio­nal IT go­ver­nance as­so­cia­tion, and the Ger­man In­sti­tute for In­ter­nal Au­diting (DIIR).
