Large companies that centralize their IT environments increasingly rely on ERP systems like SAP to manage mission-critical data, and their efforts to implement policies, procedures, and standards to ensure effective SAP data governance can be cumbersome. Winshuttle technologies can make SAP data governance more effective by providing many users with the tools to efficiently create, find, and update data.
Easing SOX Compliance
In companies that have implemented SAP, two of the most common open SOX audit issues are: 1) users in the IT departments have very broad access to production data in SAP, and 2) with access to SAP transactions such as SAP Query, QuickViewer, and Table Browser (SQ01/SQV1/SE16), SAP users become high data security risks. This white paper describes how companies can give SAP users control of their own data, and not only improve their compliance to the Sarbanes Oxley Act, but also improve corporate productivity.
Easily create and distribute standardized and repeatable processes
With Winshuttle Query and Transaction, users can easily create and use templates in familiar programs like Excel and Access to manage all types of SAP data. Because business users thoroughly understand the business context of various SAP processes, the templates that they create can significantly reduce the time and effort required for SAP data governance. With Winshuttle Central, companies can easily store, update, and distribute templates as needed, which helps to standardize processes across teams, business units, and branches. Additionally, Winshuttle technologies adhere to a company’s SAP security and organizational-level security policies, and they record changes to SAP data to allow for easy auditing.
Complying with SAP Security Using Transaction
This white paper describes how the Winshuttle technology architecture enforces stringent, native SAP security requirements around enterprise data access. The paper is written for technical decision makers (TDMs) in an enterprise to assist in evaluating Winshuttle Transaction compatibility with security policies in the SAP environment.
