For a number of years now process mining has been a subject in the world of data analysis that the analysts are increasingly focused on. We too have already devoted a blog article to this methodology and gathered initial experience in projects of a different scale and with different tools. Through this series of articles I would like to offer insight into the experience we have managed to gain. After explaining some basic terms I will take a look behind the scenes to make two points clear:
Often when giving a training or doing consulting in context of data analytics, people are asking me about whether there are existing SAP® reports, which can make their data analytic life easier. This question is a valid one indeed, as any SAP® release usually offers a wide range of built-in reports which deliver information just by the push of a button.
The following blog post was written by our trainee Robert, who is studying business informatics at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. During his internship he compared ACL™ scripting technology with queries created in SQL. Since the latest version of our extraction tool dab:Exporter offers SQL as target format as well, we wanted to get an overview regarding common features as well as differences of these analytic solutions. This is the second part of his article; the first part can be found here.

In this article, I will take a closer look at a nice way to identify duplicates in ACL™ by using the (rather new) „Fuzzy duplicates“ command. It allows you to identify duplicates which are not fully identical. What this means, how to use it and what the pros and cons are will be discussed in this blogpost.
If you are an ACL™ customer already, you might have noticed a lot of progress and exciting changes regarding ACL™ as a company as well as their great product portfolio. That is why we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to talk to the Vice President of Product Management & Design who will present the concept and vision of ACL™. His presentation will be accompanied by hands-on presentations done by some of our biggest customers. Below you will find the original invitation text. We would be very happy to welcome you at that event in Frankfurt.
Time flies – the first two weeks of 2015 are over again, and we hope that you had a good start. For us, the fourth quarter of 2014 was positive and quite busy, as it was characterized by acquiring our long-term partner company AM:DataConsult and becoming the official ACL™ distributor for Germany. Having most of the organizational steps successfully solved by now, we will now continue to step up our blog content again.
This article shows a way to customize the list of selection criteria within SAP® transaction SE16 by adding additional fields. It is a little trick which can make your life easier if you need to look at table content in SAP® regularly:
Exporting data from SAP® and getting it into ACL™ manually can be painful sometimes. For doing a full scope audit, sometimes over 100 SAP® tables are needed, and to solve this challenge we developed our extraction tool dab:Exporter to do this automatically and user-friendly.
