SAP Governance, Risk, and Compliance

Automated solutions help businesses, but what is the optimal mix of manual and automated techniques for achieving the best business performance and return on investment? PwC's Robert Clark discusses the issue.

Focused on the day-to-day concerns of the business, management often feels too busy to ask if they’re getting all they can from their SAP ERP implementation.

So a company – maybe yours – will invest millions in an enterprise solution that’s supposed to streamline processes, introduce efficiencies and simplify reporting. Then, after the dust settles, the same leaders are wondering what they got for the (substantial) money; why there are still so many manual functions; why information is no more reliable than before?

They needn’t look too far for the answer. The technologists who installed the systems have one job: making sure that their install works. But, albeit it functions just as they intended, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s working for the business, both effectively and efficiently.

PwC focuses on just that: your business, and how your technology supports it. With that focus, we can help you leverage the technology investment to create value for the organization as a whole.

We’ll show you how to manage and control information and transactions from initiation straight through to reporting, using the optimal mix of automation and manual techniques. The result: the reliability, integrity and trust you have a right to expect.
