Perhaps your auditors are breathing down your neck, urging you to secure your system or improve your Segregation of Duties (SoD) enforcement?
Or maybe you just want a quick and easy way to protect your business better by tidying up your existing security or even starting it again from scratch?
|Easy, rapid All Doors Closed
Low cost and easy to use, Security Manager Express automates the process of implementing robust, reliable security.
Proactive SoD and Multiple Role conflict checks
It also enables you to perform preventive checks before you deploy the live security, to safeguard against the risk of unwittingly creating security loopholes that leave you vulnerable to fraud or jeopardize your regulatory compliance.
Attend this webinar to find out how quickly you could improve your security. We will show how you can:
- Automatically generate security from your Task Views, and maintain them both in one place
- Import your existing security, rework it as appropriate, then check it for SoD violations
- Import existing Task Views and Role information from spreadsheets if required.

Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership all starting with a golden circle and the question “Why?” His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers …
In 2009, Simon Sinek released the book “Start With Why” — a synopsis of the theory he has begun using to teach others how to become effective leaders and inspire change.
Implementing the right ERP software can be daunting for any organization, but is especially true for organizations with multi-national operations. Most of our clients are global in nature – and many are even based in countries outside the U.S., the home country of most ERP vendors – so we’ve navigated our share of complexities among global ERP software initiatives. Even with the wide variety of ERP vendors in the marketplace, we’ve found that not all ERP software is created equally when it comes to global operations.
Indeed, ERP implementations for single-site, domestic organizations can look very different than those for global, multi-site organizations. These latter types of companies are inherently more complex in that they typically want to standardize business processes across international operations, but also need the flexibility to serve multiple and diverse customers, employees, economies and regulatory bodies. All of these factors should impact how the system is implemented.
When choosing ERP software, take time to consider the following factors to ensure you don’t overlook some of the critical components and differentiators of global organizations:
Conduct business process reengineering from a global perspective. Many of our international clients have experienced aggressive growth through the years, either organically and/or through acquisition. As a result, many struggle with disparate operations, redundant efficiencies and business processes that have been reengineered in silos rather than in a truly global manner. Global ERP implementations, however, require more holistic approaches to facilitating business process reengineering and introducing best practices into those processes. In addition to considering business processes directly related to your organization’s product or service, global initiatives also need to take into account indirect business requirements related to regulatory requirements, financial reporting, currencies, languages and other unique aspects of various parts of the world.

Tech columnist David Pogue shares 10 simple, clever tips for computer, web, smartphone and camera users. And yes, you may know a few of these already — but there’s probably at least one you don’t.
Takeaway: If your organization is preparing to upgrade its ERP system, this list will help you steer clear of common project pitfalls.
Major ERP software upgrades are often seen as a long, arduous process. But avoiding certain mistakes can help companies maintain maximum performance when implementing software improvements without disrupting users comfort with their current system. This is especially important for organizations that rely on their ERP software but need updates to keep their systems running at full potential. Here are 10 missteps to avoid when you’re planning and implementing an upgrade.
1: Not explaining what a new system means to users before starting the project
If you want to doom an upgrade project, keep the users in the dark. We have done a lot of upgrades, and the one thing that always separates successful projects from the not-so-successful ones is communication with the users. The companies that explain up front the business case for upgrading, the benefits to the company and employees, and any changes in the end user experience (green screen to Web client, Windows client to Web client, etc.) are the most successful. Why? The software will work, the hardware will work, but it doesn’t matter unless the users buy in. There is nothing more politically powerful than user perception, and if they decide the system doesn’t work, it won’t.
2: Not load testing the system with scripts and end users
Any system can run with a handful of users — but what happens when it is fully loaded with users, batch jobs, and EDI? Most ERP systems today come preset to handle a typical user load, but is your load “typical”? How do you know? The only way to determine for sure is to load test the system. The most accurate way to load test a system is with load testing software and scripts… and with real users. If you just use scripts, you won’t see the effects of user mistakes, and if you just use people, you can’t really simulate the effect of batch jobs and EDI. But if you can’t do both, pick one and run with it. Either one will be 10 times better than doing nothing.
3: Not performing a mock Go Live
A mock Go Live, or dress rehearsal, is the time when you find out whether everything will go as planned ahead of time. It is also the point when you capture timings for all the different Go Live tasks. If you don’t practice under the same conditions you’ll have when you plan to go live (e.g., if Go Live is on a weekend, mock Go Live needs to be on a weekend), you will run into issues that you never planned for, facing questions such as:
- Do I have access to everything on a weekend?
- Will we run into backups or maintenance windows?
- Is the office open and is the AC on?
Some of these may sound trivial, but when you are under pressure and have spent thousands, sometimes millions, of dollars on a new system, the last thing you want is to be delayed because you missed something that was easy to catch. Always eliminate as many variables as possible.
