This event is kindly being Sponsored by Acresso.

Tom Canning from Acresso will present a session on Seven Ways to gain control of SAP licensing. Companies are regularly overspending on software due to thecomplex nature in which license agreements are created by vendors. These paper contracts are extremely difficult to reconcile with how the software is actually used. This, combined with the challenge of getting relevant and meaningful usage analysis, means optimizing license costs for strategic investments is virtually impossible.

Alan Edwards from Consider Solutions will look at Another SAP GRC Project Success - an alternative experience. In the SAP world there are usually two types of GRC project, using the SAP GRC Suite or Approva BizRights. Both have their strengths and weaknesses, and in many cases are used in complementary ways in real projects. Look at the real life running of GRC implementation project using the Approva Bizrights technology. A specific case study of the T-Mobile experience will be combined with an overview of the technology. In addition to the technology elements, the session will cover the non-technical, business and governance aspects required to achieve sustained success, irrespective of the technology used. It will also discuss some of the potential pitfalls and how to avoid them.

The SIG Chair, Peter Curtis will provide a 2009 Conference Update session.

You are invited to bring your thoughts, problems or questions for discussion with the group in our Problem Corner Session.

Phil Gray from SAP will provide a session on Enterprise Governance, Risk and Compliance - Managing Compliance/ Regulatory, initiatives with a focus on Risk and Control. All organisations need to understand the impact of meeting compliance and regulatory demands at the same time as enforcing proper control and managing risk.

  • Risk adjusted strategy management decisions
