Improve Resilience while Managing Risk and Compliance

The Challenge:

In these times of rapidly evolving risks, organizations can no longer turn a blind eye to manual, siloed and disaggregated approaches to risk management. Organizations must transform their GRC processes along with their transformation of core SAP systems to remain resilient.

The Possibilities:

With SAP® GRC solutions, you can embed controls within a business process and gain insight into anomalies and potential risk events. You can harness Big Data directly from your SAP business applications for exception monitoring and insights better than ever before.

Because our solutions share a common technology platform, the ability to gain these real-time insights through automated controls monitoring and key risk indicators, that can be shared across our solutions, allow you to truly transform your GRC processes. And you can aggregate, from our SAP GRC solutions, the higher-level risk and compliance status to decision makers through our SAP Digital Boardroom, or through partner-driven solutions such as EY’s Risk Navigator.

The Discovery:

We also know that understanding the capabilities and value, along with building a business case, are important elements of digital transformation. If you need help making a business case, feel free to access any of the following value calculators (no registration required).

Here are the available calculators with a brief description:

SAP Access Control (also applies to SAP Identity Access Governance) - Discover the gains from automating risk analysis and mitigation, role management, privilege management, provisioning, and access certifications across your hybrid landscapes.

SAP Process Control - Explore improvements across areas such as risks, controls, regulatory and policy mapping, testing (including continuous controls monitoring), assessments, and other.

SAP Risk Management - Quantify the potential benefits of an enterprise approach to risk management across areas such as planning, responding, identifying, analyzing, and reporting on key risk areas.

SAP Audit Management - Review how to streamline internal audits and improve their quality by simplifying document evidence, organizing work papers, and creating reports – on-site and remote.

SAP Business Integrity Screening - Uncover potential opportunities for savings from reducing losses through fraud by screening high volumes of transactions for anomalies as well as business partners.
