August 2017 Release Notes

04, August 2017

As we get closer to the release date I am even more excited about our upcoming Online Reporting capability.  As I said in my previous post, the focus of this feature-set is to provide you with the type of  information that would have taken hours to collate before, whilst still giving you access to the lowest level of detail to help uncover those tenacious access issues that sometimes come up.  We are still on track for August 11 and as soon as it lands I’d love to hear your feedback.

The August 2017 Release brings the following:

  • Online Reporting
  • Multi-language Support
  • Export Functionality for Automated Provisioning and Emergency Access Management Dashboard

The release is scheduled for Aug 11th, 9:00pm EST.  Feel free to email us at support@erpmaestro.zendesk.com if you have any questions.

 

Online Reporting

Risk Analysis generates a lot of data and it gets complicated very quickly. Our Online Reporting release is the first of many that focuses on making that data both accessible and easy to understand.

Each screen provides fully filterable, groupable and sortable data. In a future release, you will be able to compose and save bespoke views that quickly and accurately arrive at the information you want to highlight.

For those customers that have the Financial Impact Analysis (FIA) ,Modified TCode Executions is available for determining Executed Risk.  Modified TCode Executions represent executions of TCodes that actually modified data and dramatically reduces the number of Fully Executed Risks, thus reducing the Audit efforts.

A bit more detail on what you will be getting with Online Reporting:

Risk Overview Dashboard: A one-pager that highlights some key Risk-related metrics about your SAP Environment which also allows you to drill down into the relevant details, including:

  • User Risks By Rating: The number of User Risks that have been identified, categorized by Risk Rating and including Utilization.
  • User Risks By Business Process: The number of User Risks bucketed by Business Process and including Utilization.
  • User Risks History: A Timeline of the User Risks that have been identified which can tell you how well your remediation efforts have been progressing or quickly show you when the number of risks have changed.
  • Users Analyzed and Roles Analyzed: The number of Users and Roles Analyzed.
  • Users By Highest Unmitigated Executed Risk: The highest unmitigated risk that has been identified for a User.  Each user will show up once in this chart.  This helps to quantify the number of users that need attention.
  • Roles By Highest Executed Risk: The highest risk that has been identified for a Role.  Helps to quantify the number of Roles that need attention.

Multi-language Support

We want ERP Maestro to be easy to use regardless of your native language.  As such we have added the ability to set the languge that you want the application to be displayed in.  Just go to My Profile and select your Prefered Language and the application will be in that language going forwards.  We are using Google Translate and sometimes the results can be very interesting 😉

Language Support

 

Export Functionality for Automated Provisioning and Emergency Access Management Dashboard

It’s now possible to export the activities around Automated Provisioning(AP)  and Emergency Access Requests (EAR) for easy dissemnation to people that do not have access to the application.  So going forwards if your Auditor wants to see a list of all Preventative control activities you will be able to just export the activities and email what they need to them.
