SAP’s systems and solutions are always changing. This includes the SAP Access Control product that companies leverage for GRC and to prevent access risks, SoD violations, fraud and internal data breaches.

Top of mind for current users of SAP Access Control is the end of maintenance and support for version 10 on December 31, which will require either another costly and time-consuming upgrade to version 12 – or a switch to an alternative solution.

There are ways in which you can take control and not be controlled by a vendor. You can eliminate constant upgrades, break free from vendor-dictated new costs, and future-proof control solutions. Join experts from both ERP Maestro and RSM in an upcoming webinar to learn more about:

  • • What is involved in an upgrade to version 12?
  • • What future upgrades might be coming thereafter?
  • • What other options do you have to remove the need for constant upgrades altogether?
