Solution Insight

Linda Hewison Lars Andersson Winterhawk Co Owner. Responsible for Service Delivery, Training and Education of SAP GRC and Security Consultants

Linda Hewison, CFO

Large enterprises, will typically purchase SAP Access Control to gain control over sensitive access and segregation of duties. As a consulting firm, we noticed a gap where medium-sized enterprises running SAP were unable to justify the cost of a full enterprise edition of Access Control. So what does a medium-sized enterprise running SAP do, especially when they have an audit team telling them to provide assurance over user access? Our answer is typically ERP Maestro.

Our clients have all been delighted with the speed to get up and running, and the fact that the price includes implementation, ongoing support, hosting and training. The business-friendly language is often commented upon, along with the out-of-the-box reporting.

Credibility is key. There are other GRC solutions for SAP on the market, but none of them are used by the leading Audit firms – having confidence in the solution you procure is vital.
