September 28, 2016 saw the staging of the second IIA Data Analytics Event in Switzerland. A year earlier we were on the scene as an exhibitor, but this year we had the extra opportunity of presenting a paper – but one thing after another.
This year the largest revision conference in Germany takes place in the Bavarian state capital Munich and follows the topic "Revision 4.0 – Herausforderungen erkennen, Chancen nutzen„ (Revision 4.0 - understanding the challenges, take opportunities)". The two-day event (25th and 26th of October 2016) offers a range of exciting presentations and lots of space for extensive discussions and technical discussions.
After the great success of the IIA data analytics events last year, we can look forward now to a continuation. The dab: supports also the second event together with ACL™, where we are ready on-site for your questions and discussions about products and data analytic solutions.
The dab: is pleased to welcome you at the 35th annual meeting of the IIRÖ. The event is an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas among auditors and establish contacts, which is why we support it together with ACL™ as a sponsor.
The majority of our customers who use data analytics rely on ACL™ products such as ACL™ Analytics or ACL™ Analytics Exchange, which are ideal for analysing large data volumes. In other words, they are perfect for “number crunching”, either locally and manually, or centrally and standardised.
ACL™ is not only making big advances in product development – on-site personnel and presence on markets outside the USA and Canada are also being expanded. The ACL™ website for instance will now appear entirely in German.
We should like to inform you that as of August 1, 2016 AM:DataConsult GmbH is reincorporated as dab:Software GmbH. Affiliation with the dab:GmbH corporate group, existent since October 2014, is now demonstrated by our name and corporate identity.
This year Audit Challenge 2016 (http://audit-challenge.com/) took place from June 20 through 24 in Frankfurt. As part of the event we had the opportunity of delivering a practically oriented paper titled "10 years of successful data analytics" together with Anke Giegandt of BSH Hausgeraete (formerly BSH Bosch Siemens Hausgeraete).
In his posting of 2016-04-14 Stefan Wenig presented the newly created dab: Mittelstand GmbH as part of the dab corporate group, its basic motivation, where it aims to go and how it wants to get there. Establishing a separate company, I think, measures up to the challenges of SMB and the importance that attaches.
