Enabling 360° Control in SAP Environments
[tabs style=”default”] [tab title=”Executive Summary”]
Manual processes and document-centric approaches to ERP systems and process controls, is time-consuming, prone to mistakes and errors, and leave the business exposed. Organizations need to establish a control strategy that is enabled by technology to automate controls in a context that balances business agility with control to mitigate risk. This approach should reduce loss/exposure, and satisfy both auditors and regulators while enabling users to perform their jobs. By automating ERP controls, organizations take a proactive approach to avoiding risk while cutting down the cost and time required to maintain controls, be compliant, and mitigate risk.
