Citizen Development: How IA can help turn low-code into high reward



Event description

With the rising trend of Citizen Developers being empowered by organizations to become a key IT development resource, a unique set of IT risks is emerging. While the concept of end-users creating their own solutions is not new, Citizen Developers are being armed with more powerful tools to develop their own applications and take advantage of data lakes and data cubes to create more advanced reporting and analyses. But these efficiencies can be hindered when internal controls requirements set by regulators and other oversight groups enter the mix, as they can appear to run counterproductive to the Citizen Developer mission and the speed of business they’re trying to keep pace with.


Join the Grant Thornton IT Internal Audit team on December 15th to review the emerging risks around Citizen Developers and how internal audit can bring an independent, value-add point of view to this fast paced development process.


The discussion will focus on:

  • The unique opportunity, risks and expectations introduced by empowered Citizen Developers
  • Common tools and use cases Citizen Developers are deploying

Using business intelligence reporting as a case study, we will discuss:

  • Leading governance practices for citizen developers
  • The critical control points to consider when implementing a Citizen Developer process
  • How to organize and configure the reporting platform to ensure effective security and efficiency
  • Leading practices to ensure the reporting platform continues to serve the needs of the business while providing an effective internal controls environment
