SAP Solutions for Governance, Risk, and Compliance:
SAP GRC Process Control
As global regulatory mandates multiply and grow more stringent, manual approaches to control activities are becoming untenable. By embedding automated controls into your cross-enterprise business processes, you can move away from resource-intensive manual control activities to address critical business risks with a rationalized set of automated controls -- ensuring that your organization meets compliance mandates in the most timely and cost-effective fashion while optimizing operational efficiency.
Optimize Business Operations and Ensure Compliance Across the Extended Enterprise
The SAP GRC Process Control application provides a risk-based approach to establishing a control environment and identifying the most effective and efficient controls for business processes and cross-enterprise IT systems. The application integrates directly with control documentation in SAP GRC Repository -- enabling you to centralize control management and eliminating the need to integrate separate tools for documentation, testing, remediation, and continuous control monitoring.
SAP GRC Process Control enables you to:
- Automate and unify control management processes -- Transform your manual and piecemeal compliance activities into automated and simplified real-time control management processes. Implement controls for key risks using a combination of automated control monitoring, manual control testing, and self-assessments. Provide testers with step-by-step procedures for performing manual control tasks. Achieve compliance and alignment with mandated regulations and governance, such as Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and COBIT.
- Reduce costs without compromising compliance -- Deploy predefined, automated control tests across multiple organizations and business units to reduce the number of controls that need to be maintained. Increase efficiencies and control process accuracy via manual control tests that are automatically routed to appropriate personnel, and via automatically created remediation cases.
- Effectively manage business control risks -- View a global heat map that pinpoints control violations and displays prioritized corrective actions. View an intuitive, hierarchical representation of complex control environments to identify control gaps. Analyze activity trends and patterns to optimize performance.
