Analytic Process Automation in action - Creating SAP Sales Orders with Alteryx & the DVW Alteryx Connector for SAP
Many of you will already be familiar with the capabilities of the DVW Alteryx Connector for SAP in reading (extracting) data from a wide range of SAP systems and sources into Alteryx.

Tax, Audit & Finance - Extract Sales & Purchasing Tax Data from SAP ECC & SAP S/4HANA using Alteryx & the DVW Alteryx Connector for SAP
The use of Alteryx within the Tax, Audit and Finance functions is a particularly hot topic at the moment and with good reason. Alteryx can help users across the Tax, Audit, and Finance offices to significantly reduce the time and effort spent manually gathering data and reconciling business and legal entities, along with generating their internal and regulatory reporting.
All of this is true, but if the majority of the data you need to access resides in an SAP system you will need the DVW Alteryx Connector for SAP to streamline the import of that data into Alteryx.
As an SAP customer you will, at some point in the near future, need to consider replacing SAP ECC with SAP S/4HANA.
Regardless of whether you proceed with a new (Greenfield) implementation, a system conversion (the so-called, Brownfield approach) or a selective data transition; the successful migration of your business data will be key to delivering a successful programme.
