Expand your GRC Controls to Cover all Systems – how to Make SAP GRC Work in a Heterogeneous World
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Wednesday, December 12, 2012 TIME: 4pm CET, 10am EST, 7am PST
Having an integrated GRC architecture, i.e. real Enterprise GRC instead of point solutions, provides massive benefits to organizations. Real Enterprise GRC, beyond GRC for specific environments or only for the business side, requires a tight integration of some solutions. While SAP GRC provides a strong offering for the SAP ecosystem, extending it to the heterogeneous world requires additional solutions. A complete picture for Enterprise GRC covers different needs. While SAP GRC is a logical cornerstone for organizations with a large SAP infrastructure in place, this still leaves the need for covering the rest of the ecosystem and the GRC requirements which aren’t fully covered by SAP GRC.
Martin Kuppinger of KuppingerCole will provide an overview on different approaches found in the market to either extend SAP GRC or to use other approaches for full control in heterogeneous environments. He will outline an architecture for a comprehensive Enterprise GRC approach in environments with SAP infrastructure deployed, centered around SAP GRC but adding additional components to cover what is missing.
Marco Venuti of CrossIdeas will then demonstrate, based on best practices of customers, how organizations can extend their SAP GRC in practice to manage access controls and implement access governance, including SoD controls, in heterogeneous environments.

A key challenge in every organization is making sure that the right tools are available, in the right place, at the right time, for the right people. The continual on and off boarding of large groups of employees, external workforces or partners creates increased pressure on administrative teams within an organization. An overall change towards diverse end-user devices, both corporate and privately owned, adds a new dimension of complexity, while compliance and security requirements challenge IT, CISOs and executive management.
