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.
Actually "The Trip to Panama" would have been a better header, but the news desks of the broadcasters beat us to it. Although of course the children's book by Janosch, with the tiny tiger and little bear, has nothing to do with the affair revolving around the letterbox or shell companies of the Panamanian law firm. But the title is just so catchy.
We are pleased to have Marc Gittler, Senior Audit Manager at Deutsche Post DHL Group, as the guest speaker for a jointly staged webinar. He will report, orienting on true practice, of his experience focused on automated data extraction and data analytics, both generating essential value added for one's user departments.
