Migrating to SAP S/4HANA can provide organizations with multiple benefits such as real-time reporting, scalable platforms, simplified processes, and faster analytics. However, effective security and controls as an implementation afterthought can lead to inefficiencies and audit concerns later. How can your organization leverage GRC and controls to ensure a smooth and secure transition?
Attend this session to learn how to:
- Embed security and controls into your SAP S/4HANA implementation strategy to effectively impact your organization’s guiding principles and key decisions for build requirements, testing, and training
- Create a holistic security model and controls workstream that integrates project management, IT, system integration, business process, and change and engage teams from project inception
- Maximize your SAP automation investment while reducing manual control workaround
