With summer coming to an end, audit cycles are creeping up soon and that means the annual review of internal controls, including segregation of duties (SoD), will once again commence. Companies that still haven’t taken the plunge towards automating these controls, or use manual processes to do so, will likely face a high number of SoD risks and audit deficiencies.
So we've just passed the mid-year hump of 2017 and before you know it, it'll be time to prepare for the next SAP access audit (just when you thought you recovered from the last one).

Recently the ERP Maestro team did double conference duty, covering both the SAPinsider GRC & Financials and IIA GAM conferences during the week of March 20th. And what a week it was! We officially announced new features and received very positive reviews during the group demo sessions we held with attendees. Of course, it was also great to get face time with our new and familiar Internal Control Freak friends.
