Case Study – SA’s Largest Food Manufacturing Company

Manage Access Roles and Security to Streamline User Provisioning in EBS at one of South Africa’s largest food manufacturing companies.

Just how did we do it?

Challenges the organisation faced:

  • A SoD matrix for the organisation needed to be defined. Violations needed to be identified and managed.
  • Robust user provisioning.  Implement a solution and define a process for access provisioning.
  • Access control monitoring. To enable access requisitioning and approval via workflow.
  • Emergency access management. To enable the process to manage Super User access provisioning and logging of actions for audit purposes.
  • Increase external auditor’s reliance on ERP Access Controls Monitoring.

Solution which was implemented:

iAccess User Provisioning

Roles Manager

User Certification

Results achieved:

  • Reduced User Provisioning time by identifying and eliminating 80% of manual steps.
  • Created access policies to ensure compliance during user provisioning process.
  • Lowered ERP Total Cost of Ownership by reducing SoD remediation time and costs by ensuring that all users are assigned only the pre-approved roles.
  • Improved SoD and Access Controls testing time by providing auditors the access log reports showing all update, review and approve role design changes.
  • Accelerated ERP Access Approval time by identifying valid SoD conflicts before the roles are assigned to users.
  • Reduction of SoD violations which in turn leads to a reduction to the exposure of fraud risk – expected benefit of R2.1m which is 5% of estimated losses of R40m.
