Dedham, MA (PressExposure) November 11, 2011 -- SAPexperts posted a new article, "How to Validate Segregation of Duties Results," to its GRC Expert online knowledgebase.
This article outlines the steps needed to prove that the SAP BusinessObjects Access Control reports are accurate. This is often demanded by management, due to being bombarded with an overload of data. First running segregation of duties (SoD) reports in SAP BusinessObjects Access Control often leads to a fear of inaccurate data. That's why it is imperative to know the best practice of verifying the resulting data.
The steps outlined in this article are specific to SAP BusinessObjects Risk Analysis and Remediation (RAR) version 5.3, as this is currently the most used version. They are also applicable to SAP BusinessObjects Access Control 10.0. Bob Croce, product director of SAPexperts comments, "With all the data that comes out of SAP BusinessObjects Access Control reports, staff can justifiably become worried that data may be incorrect. That is why this article puts forth the steps to substantiate the data involved".
The article is written by Jayne Gibbon, Director of SAP GRC Support, SAP. The article abstract is located at: http://www.grcexpertonline.com/article.cfm?id=6058
