How Amyris Shortened SAP Access Audits by 3 Weeks

Three weeks. 120+ hours. A fortune in labor or consulting time.


No matter how it’s expressed, three weeks represents a significant amount of time and expense for any company regardless of size. Amyris, a California-based renewable products company, was able to achieve these savings by implementing the right technology to address a pain point they were experiencing during a key portion of their annual audits – documenting and automating controls for SAP access and segregation of duties (SoDs).
