SAP Unifies Compliance and BI ToolsMarch 25, 2011 No Comments
SAP has unified its compliance tools into a single platform under its BusinessObjects banner.
The release, announced on Wednesday, integrates elements of its business intelligence toolkit with the newest version of its governance, risk and compliance (GRC) tools into a single platform that can plug into other business intelligence software, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications.
The refreshed GRC suite — comprised of SAP’s BusinessObjects Access Control, Risk Management and Process Control components — is the culmination of more than three years spent trying to bring a common interface to the toolkit.
“The new release introduces a common look and feel across all applications in the GRC suite; embedded business intelligence (BI) reports and dashboards; and a graphical tool to define and depict risks,” SAP said in a statement. “[It provides] far greater transparency, control and support for corporate strategy.”
The company also said the new features make the products easier to use and enable people to more easily communicate risks to business managers who may have limited GRC experience.Featured Blogs
