Pros: First off, the documentation of the software is comprehensive and clear. Secondly the software allows auditors to work on the host locally as well as using a server, allowing entire teams to share data together. Finally the software supports an extensive list of data formats, from XML to different kind of database formats and as a bonus it has scripting options.

Cons: When working with a remote server, the software tends to lock up during data load. This ensures the integrity of the data, but it's makes the user feel as if the software is unresponsive.

Overall: Overall the software is great because it has been developed with the end user in mind. If I were to choose between IDEA and other auditing and data analytics software I would prefer IDEA because it offers a comprehensive set of features for data audits.

Definitely get training so you know ALL the features!
