Adapt your SAP authorisation concept to S/4HANA

S/4HANA is SAP’s next-generation business suite that is built on SAP’s proprietary operational database system and in-memory computing platform called SAP HANA. S/4HANA is intended to be easier to use and administer while helping to solve more complex problems and handle vastly larger amounts of data than ist predecessors. S/4HANA is available in on-premises, cloud and hybrid deployment models.

With the release of S/4HANA SAP consolidates the integration and harmonisation of functionalities and processes and further reduces barriers between SAP modules facilitating system integration. New technologies, such as Fiori, enhance the user interface for both desktop and mobile devices. The in-memory HANA database lets you collect, store, and process high volumes of operational and transactional data in real time.

Implementation of S/4HANA will affect your current environment, and not just technologywise because processes are also subject to change. Both – the new technology and the change in processes – will result in new requirements for your current authorisation concept. Whereas parts of your existing authorisation concept can be easily transformed and implemented 1:1 in the SAP S/4 HANA system, other parts need to be changed and adapted to meet the new requirements.

PwC has a proven track record in Switzerland and globally in implementing and transforming SAP authorisation models in the SAP S/4HANA environment. Our GRC Technology Team in Switzerland led and executed the authorisation implementation part of the ninth S4/HANA implementation worldwide from the authorisation concept, to implementation and operation. Our experts have the required skill-set, tools, techniques and experience to discuss your challenges with you, and to actively support you throughout the whole project.

SAP GRC Access Control upgrade & migration service

SAP GRC

What is it about?

SAP GRC Access Control 5.3 is built on a technology which does not allow extensive customising. But this is possible again with versions 10.0 and 10.1. This means that we will adapt your SAP GRC Access Control System to your needs and requirements. It’s also important to realise that new functionality such as improved firefighting, reporting and user interfaces, and the integration of new technology such as Hana or Fiori, is only provided with the latest version (10.1).
Given that version 5.3 is based on a different technology than versions 10.0 and 10.1, a migration path is required. If you plan to move from version 10.0 to 10.1, only an upgrade is required. SAP provides standard tools supporting the migration. Nevertheless, further accelerators and a proven methodology are required for ensuring data consistent and auditability / traceability.
