Spotlight on ACL Direct Link


Manage Controls and Gain Easier Access to SAP Data

Systems don’t control themselves. If you have SAP ERP, do you know which controls are on and which are working? Are you able to access the data to conduct more comprehensive data analysis for your audit?

ACL’s Customer Solutions Director Steve Biskie, author of Surviving an SAP Audit, details some of the challenges around managing internal controls within SAP and how secure, direct and automated access to the data can guarantee efficient and accurate reporting of audit results to management and reduce overall risk.

Watch “Auditing and the SAP Environment”
