SAP Control helps establish a strong, stable operating foundation for your business. It is a tool that is designed to help you monitor and track the performance of your business on a day-to-day basis.
Using analytic tools, you can understand what impact policies were and how they would have impacted your company without taking any action. It’s also possible to use SAP Control to identify issues in advance before they occur so you can take appropriate actions before they become larger problems.
But what’s the relation between SAP Control and segregation of duties (SoD)? To make it easier for you to understand, we’ve outlined 11 ways SAP Control helps establish SoD:
1. Audit trails and reporting capabilities: SAP Control provides an audit trail of all changes made to your system, which can help you quickly identify any potential issues. It also includes detailed reporting capabilities, so you can get a clear overview of your business performance at any time.
2. Role-based access: SAP Control allows you to restrict access to certain areas of your system based on users’ roles. This helps ensure that only authorized personnel can make changes, preventing any unauthorized activity.
3. Fine-grained user authorizations: SAP Control gives you granular control over which actions users can perform. This helps you tightly restrict access to sensitive data and prevent any unauthorized activity.
4. Change history tracking: SAP Control keeps a record of all changes made to your system, so you can track who made the change, when it was made, and what the impact was. This helps you quickly identify any potential issues and take corrective action.
5. System-wide segregation of duties: SAP Control enables you to apply segregation of duties (SoD) across your entire system. This helps ensure that all areas of your business are protected from potential abuse.
6. Role-based segregation of duties: SAP Control allows you to create segregated roles based on users’ responsibilities. This ensures that only authorized personnel can access sensitive data and prevents any unauthorized activity.
7. Change analysis: SAP Control provides detailed change analysis reports, which help you understand the impact of changes made to your system. This helps you identify any potential issues and take corrective action.
8. Exception management: SAP Control includes powerful exception management tools that help you quickly identify and resolve any issues that occur. This helps ensure that your business runs smoothly and without interruption.
9. Role comparison: SAP Control allows you to compare the permissions of different roles, so you can quickly identify any potential conflicts. This helps ensure that all users have only the permissions they need to do their job safely and securely.
10. Time-based access controls: SAP Control allows you to restrict access to certain areas of your system based on the time of day. This helps ensure that only authorized personnel can access your data during specified time periods.
11. Role cloning: SAP Control allows you to quickly and easily create duplicate roles, so you can easily replicate permissions across your organization. This helps ensure that all users have the same level of access and can easily comply with your segregation of duties requirements.
