© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 11 How do Infogix Controls Work?
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 12 Business processes are complex.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 13 The potential for information errors exists throughout the business process.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 14 Infogix Controls monitor, detect, and prevent information errors.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 15 Infogix Controls are deployed as control points. Process AProcess BProcess C Control Point 1Control Point 2
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 16 At each control point, the Infogix Control: Process Control Point 1. captures information, 2. compares the information, 3. controls the process, and 4. communicates the control results.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 17 There are four steps to setting up an Infogix Control.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 18 To do that, you specify the format of the source information, how it will be accessed, and where it is located. First, you define the layout of the information to be captured at the control point. 1
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 19 Infogix Controls can capture data from a wide variety of sources. financial and operational reports application files and proprietary formats databasesXMLSpreadsheetsEDIweb
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 20 You specify the fields of information from your sources that the Infogix Control will capture. Layout Layout Fields
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 21 Infogix Controls may capture information from multiple sources. Layout Layout Fields
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 22 The layout definition also specifies the control fields into which the source information is captured. Layout FieldsControl Fields
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 23 Second, you define the comparison rules the Infogix Control will use to compare the control fields. The rules can be simple or complex. 2
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 24 For example, you might want to halt further processing or to execute other Infogix Controls. 3 Third, you define control actions to be performed based on the result of the comparisons. Record audit trail into control report. Stop further processing of this transaction. Execute reconciliation controls.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 25 Finally, you define what and how you want to communicate about the results of the execution of the Infogix Control. 4 For example, you may want to send alerts to specific people via pager, , exception report, Infogix Inbox, etc.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 26 Let’s Look at Examples.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 27 Infogix Controls can automate, simplify and streamline daily or month-end financial accounting practices. Let’s look at a simplified General Ledger Application example.
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 28 On a daily basis, all Branch Teller Journal activity is received and tabulated based on Branch location in different regions of the country. On that same day, internal applications augment and centralize the information into Sub Ledgers prior to updating the General Ledger
© 2008 Infogix, Inc. 29 Infogix Controls can automatically verify that transactions in the Teller Journal application are received and processed by the Sub Ledger and accurately posted to the General Ledger before any month-end information is generated. Teller JournalGeneral LedgerSub Ledger
