ERP Maestro Announces Launch of Cloud-Based Analytics Solution
ERP Maestro Inc. announced the launch of the only Cloud-based Segregation of Duty and Sensitive Access Analytics solution available to ERP users today, as well as their newest global client. According to its Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Jody Paterson, ERP Maestro's mission is to make the identification, remediation and on-going maintenance of Segregation of Duty (SoD) risk and the resolution of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) internal access control violations simple and cost effective.
As the only Cloud-based Access Control Analytics solution available today that is engineered with a rapid implementation toolset and actionable remediation reporting capabilities, ERP Maestro clients are provided with an accelerated means to identify access control risk issues. This is accomplished via an extremely cost effective, high value Software as a Service subscription that eliminates the need for capital intensive acquisitions of on premise software, hardware, annual software maintenance costs and lengthy consulting projects.
Jody Paterson, in his former capacity as a Director of the KPMG SAP Security Analytics team, served as a thought leader, subject matter expert, conference presenter, and managed innumerable project teams and implementations of on premise ERP access control solutions. According to Jody, "While on premise GRC software solutions are highly effective in addressing the risk posed by SoD, they are exorbitantly expensive and take months to implement. Many companies have limited budgets and do not want the capital expense of procuring and maintaining an on premise solution. In the past, complexity and cost were significant impediments for many companies in achieving SoD compliance. With the advent of ERP Maestro, access risk compliance is no longer a daunting task or expense."
ERP Maestro also announced the addition of a global corporation specializing in security and asset protection as an ERP Maestro client. This client, with over 69,000 employees worldwide, spent many months evaluating various on premise SoD software alternatives for SAP R3 that in the end, produced an unmanageable number of false positive SoD conflicts that could not be efficiently remediated.
