    Proposition paper

    When you are aiming high with your SAP and other application ambitions, it is important that the fundament is strong. A lived through strategy, a solid plan, experienced and well-motivated people, partners with in-depth SAP knowledge, the right technology, and a strong security and compliance basis. We add value making your SAP environment continuously secure & compliant. Whatever you ambition or context is, we have the right technology and people to realise all your objectives in a controlled manner.

    A company’s application landscape is often complex by design and is becoming more and more complex with multiple SAP environments and or SAP solutions (ECC, S4HANA, Concur, SuccessFactors, Ariba, Fieldglass), all working together with other non-SAP best-of-breed solutions. On premises, in the cloud or as combination of both. The context is often not stable, with increasing demands and an ever-increasing pace of change. Our SAP security & compliance proposition covers every angle of your SAP risks in both a ‘SAP-only’ environment and a diverse complex application environment.

    Whatever your ambition and whatever your context is, we will add significant value. Our high quality, flexible solutions aim to protect your SAP assets, audit, and improve your SAP security & compliance, lower the cost of control, help you identify benefits in applications and processes, or enable you to realise efficiency gains in your operations and change programmes. We implement our technology on-premises or in the cloud and can deliver our value “a managed service” out of our remote locations.
