Accenture faces the ongoing need to deliver a comprehensive user security solution that is compliant with controls and operates with increasing compliance, agility and efficiency across multiple business units, business processes and applications via a single source of truth.
Over the past decade, Accenture has combined a rigorous approach of governance and process-focused delivery of security operations with an Identity Management (IDM) and Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solution, both from SAP.
The resulting IDM solution automates more than 99 percent of the SAP-related privileges in a standard month and more than 90 percent of entitlements across all applications in scope, allowing a provisioning team smaller than it was 10 years ago to support five times the number of applications and greater user request volumes.
Accenture today can address audit questions better, faster and more cost-effectively than in prior years. Moreover, rather than audit teams finding issues, Accenture’s security teams now prevent issues or proactively identify and resolve them.
