ASAP works in a very similar way to SAP GUI, except you don’t need to manually enter all of the tables and fields that you want to extract. It downloads data into text files to your laptop in blocks of x numbers of rows that you can specify. It is capable of applying simple filters as well as filters based on links between different tables. Note: ASAP tool now works for both SAP ECC6 and SAP 4-HANA!
ASAP comes with pre-configured Excel files that will enable you to automatically get all of the data that you require for the dashboards mentioned in Data Analytics Secrets Book Series and found on the AuditZoom platform, so that you don’t have to go in and enter all of those tables and fields yourself into SAP GUI.
If your team is use to downloading data from SAP using SE16 and they have run into some issues, such as the time it takes them to enter all of the SAP fields for each table that they require, or the difficulty in limiting one table based on another one (for example the general ledger detail table does not contain the month, so if you want to have the information for one month, you will need to filter based on the general ledger header table, and this is something very difficult to do in SE16), then this tool will help you to go quicker.
The ASAP tool is preconfigured with all of the SAP tables and fields that you would need if you want to use the 300 QLIK for SAP dashboards that are in our AuditZOOM platform and that we describe in our books. This means that your team do not need to spend a lot of time finding out which SAP tables and fields they need and they do not need to spend a lot of time entering that information into the tool.
The ASAP tool is installed on any device that uses Windows and will install within 2 minutes. Once installed, the tool will ask you for the SAP system connection details which will be the same ones that you enter when you use SAP GUI for connecting to SAP.
