Governance Risk and Compliance: State of the Market 2021 Benchmark Webinar

Governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) systems and professionals are increasingly important as regulations around data become stricter and corporate systems become a more frequent target of cybersecurity attacks. These risks and compliance challenges are compounded by the fact that many SAP organizations are in the process of transitioning to new technology — be it SAP S/4HANA or cloud offerings. The global pandemic and economic turndown of 2020 added more GRC concerns around remote work and budgets.

To understand what SAP customers are doing in the area of GRC, SAPinsider surveyed 167 members of our community in April and May 2021. The goal of the survey was to understand the most important factors driving GRC for SAP customers, and what strategies are being taken to address these factors. The greatest influence for survey respondents (58%) in the area of GRC was new technology migrations.

Attend the benchmark webinar to:

  • Discover what business pressures drive GRC initiatives.
  • Understand how SAPinsiders approach implementing GRC programs.
  • Find out which technologies are being used for GRC.
  • Learn the top requirements for GRC.
  • Gain your steps to success.
