From 21st until 22nd November, the biennial congress from the German Institute for Internal Audit (DIIR) took place in Dresden. Several hundred auditors from all over Germany attended more than 70 lectures on topics related to internal auditing.
While process mining has been a topic of discussion for some while, interest has recently intensified. Google currently shows 1,100,000 hits for searches on the subject, and Gartner’s most recent “Market Guide for Process Mining” published in June 2019 lists 19 suppliers in its “Representative Vendors” section.

Process Mining has been a topic in the data analysis world for several years now and represents an extension of existing data analysis solutions for many companies. While in classical data analysis one usually moves to the level of detail of individual transactions, Process Mining provides an overview of the actual processes in the company. This overview of the processes can help you to better understand the background of analysis results of classical data analysis. I would like to show you how we can support you with our experience in data extraction and data preparation. In addition, we can make recommendations from our work with various Process Mining providers to help you choose the right provider. In this article I will use the software Minit as a showcase.

In this blog post I outline some important issues when analysing SAP® accounts payable postings. Specifically, I discuss which documents should be considered and which can be ignored – or the attributes according to which a compression may, where applicable, also make sense. As this depends on the individual (or on the analysis objective), this should be seen as a suggestion.
Data analysis and the internal control system are two topics that absolutely belong together. In this way, the effectiveness of controls can be assessed using data analytic techniques. Depending on the concrete questions, this can also be done automatically.
The release of dab:Exporter Version 3.0 was more than 5 years ago. The introduction of the package concept with table dependencies within a client-server architecture has proven to be absolutely the right step and provides our customers worldwide with valuable extraction support on a daily basis. Unfortunately, we can't boast such a groundbreaking technological change with our latest release, but the complete modernization of our SAP component was reason enough for us to make a leap to version 4.0.
