Webinar: How to simplify and succeed your SOX/GRC/ERM compliance audit

How to simplify and succeed your SOX/GRC/ERM compliance audit in the current financial crisis …

Date: October 21st, 2009 11:00am Eastern
Company: DynaFlow Compliance & Workflow Solutions

The current financial crisis is taking its toll in all industry segments. Cost cutting measures are being implemented everywhere, public and private organizations alike. Investments and growth decisions can be postponed, however, compliance regulations and audits are there to stay and be dealt with. Furthermore, since the current crisis has been initiated and fueled by mismanagement and scandals, this will only translate into a further increase of regulations to be imposed on companies. The key question is then “how can I simplify significantly my internal governance effort while using a proven process that will ensure our successful SOX/GRC/ERM audit?

Based on actual experiences of other Baan users, this webinar will address this question and show you in action how:

  • how Bio-Rad (Baan IV & ERP-5) scanned 120,000+ Baan authorizations and loaded several hundreds of their Business Controls and Risks within the first 4 days of their implementation,
     
  • how EnerSys (Baan IV) reduced their SoD validation time & effort by 90% and increased user authorizations and SoD data accuracy by 100% compared with the manual approach of before,
     
  • how HYVA (ERP-5 & LN) selected the EZ-Compliance SaaS Program to secure a flexible subscription-based hosted implementation, enabling within the same week unlimited users globally (NL, India, China) to collaborate on conflicts identification & mitigation,
     
  • how Herman Miller (Baan IV) scan weekly 250,000+ user accesses across nine systems (Baan, Mapics, Oracle, SAP, Hyperion, etc...) to immediately identify, mitigate and even prevent any SoD conflicts that could constitute a business risk for their organization,
     
  • how Griffin Pipe (Baan IV), Fujitsu (ERP-5) and Comcast implemented within only a few months a fully automated, accurate and real-time approval notification process,
     
  • how Zebra Technologies (Baan IV) greatly simplified their SOX deliverables while reducing significantly the time and effort related to their internal & external audits,
     
  • how Olympus (Baan IV) selected EZ-Compliance to automate the SoD scan daily/weekly without any human intervention to secure their J-SOX audit certification,
     
  • how other organizations such as Immucor, ABB, Microchip, Coopervision, NAI, Komatsu, Magna, etc… have selected EZ-Compliance to achieve successful audit with E&Y, KPMG, Grant Thornton, Deloitte, or PWC.
     

Offer to Webinar attendees

At no cost, DynaFlow will scan your Baan user authorizations (DEM or Tools) and present you with the list of SoD conflicts identified by the EZ-Compliance scan. Your own users, your Baan sessions and your SoD risks… a golden opportunity to see your SoD Compliance Health status.

Tyco and ABB selects EZ-Compliance to address their Governance and Segregation-of-Duties requirements

Tyco and ABB selects EZ-Compliance to address their Governance and Segregation-of-Duties requirements 

Montreal October 15th, 2009 - DynaFlow is proud to announce that both ABB and Tyco recently have chosen the EZ-Compliance Solution from DynaFlow to manage their Governance and Segregation of Duties (SoD) requirements. EZ-Compliance’s unique and differentiating capability to integrate Business Processes, Business Risks and Business Controls based on standard such as COSO, COBiT and ISO and the ability to automate the crucial Segregation-of-Duties (SoD) validation by its dynamic link to all major ERP solutions including Baan, Oracle, SAP  and others, does satisfy all aspects of the recommendation issued from Gartner in April 2008: “

Before moving to financial governance investments, focus IT solutions for the CFO on improving compliance program management. Move compliance processes off spreadsheets and file servers onto an enterprise governance, risk and compliance (EGRC) platform with a common repository for SOX compliance documentation, good workflow and flexible reporting. The next priority is IT solutions for segregation of duties and transaction monitoring for ERP."

Ref: SOX Update: How to Best Support the CFO, Gartner Research.

 

The EZ-Compliance Solution is part of the EZ-Process Solution Suite and is fully integrated with the Workflow Automation Solution, EZ-Workflow of DynaFlow. This Workflow Solution differentiates itself by its short cycle to generate benefits and savings. One of the enablers is the ease of use of the tool itself, you do not need to be a technician to define and execute a workflow. The solution also comes with many pre-defined processes which can be used out-of-the-box? The resulting total cost of ownership of the DynaFlow Workflow Solution EZ-Workflow™ is best in its class.

The EZ-Process™ Solution Suite is delivered on a Microsoft Server technology platform with out-of-the-box integration to other major software. EZ-Process™ is used by leading global companies such as Fujitsu, Herman Miller, Komatsu, BioRad, CooperVision, MDA and many others.

Griffin Pipe adopts EZ-Workflow to automate their Purchasing Approval process

With the implementation of the EZ-Workflow™ Griffin Pipe was able to achieve significant benefits with only a few months after the decision to implement EZ-Workflow™. Griffin pipe experienced difficulties with the efficiency of the Purchase Requisition process. The process as manual and lacked the proper information to the requestor and management.

The definition of the approval routes, the configuration of the routing rules and the training of the end-users (all able to be done by non-IT personnel) took less time than anticipated. This was made possible because approval patterns and related user notifications can be defined, changed or implemented in production within only minutes."

Purchasing Manager, Griffin Pipe

After the implementation of EZ-Workflow™ Griffin Pipe achieved benefits such as:

  • Full visibility of requisition status and audit trails, both past and present.

  • A fully automated, accurate and real time approval notification process.

  • Consistent approval definitions linked to areas if responsibilities and approval limits.

Next to these benefits, Griffin Pipe achieve more benefits after a short implementation of EZ-Workflow™.

New certified SoD Best Practices libraries available for SAP and Oracle

DynaFlow Inc., leader in Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC/ERM) solutions, introduces new Segregation-of-Duties (SoD) libraries for SAP and Oracle, to complement the Baan library released in 2006.

Including the knowledge of thousands of SAP / Oracle accesses that should not be granted to the same employee, these libraries deliver significant and tangible value. On one hand, they acts as Best Practices benchmark (used by auditors and other similar organizations), greatly contributing to the successful compliance certification. On the other hand, since these conflicting access configurations are defined as SoD "Rules", they can be used to validate within minutes a very large number of ERP authorizations granted to employees. Combined, they enable organizations to fully automate their SoD validation with certified SoD Best Practices.

With these new libraries, DynaFlow also strengthen its GRC/ERM provider position in the ERP independent market. Contrary to competing products, DynaFlow is not bound to one ERP application or vendor, but supports the mainstream of ERP applications.

Pierre Beaulieu, President of DynaFlow adds: "Most of our customers have multiple ERP platforms and versions, often as a heritage of acquisitions and mergers. With EZ-Compliance, we enable them to perform the SoD health check across all ERP applications, even custom developed. This EZ-Compliance architecture not only provides organizations with a single, corporate-wide and cost-efficient SoD solution, it also enables ‘cross-applications’ SoD validation. Now a key requirement of auditors, this capability dynamically identifies business risks associated to employees able to access different systems of the company. With most GRC solution being ERP centric, EZ-Compliance is one step ahead."
 

We reduced our SOD validation time & effort by 90%, and increased user authorizations and SOD data accuracy by 100% compared with the manual approach of before."
