Pressure Cooker: Access Controls in New and Existing ERP Systems

Wednesday, April 06 | 10:45AM–11:45AM | Bonham C/Third Level
Session Type: Professional Development
This session will address security access control from the dual perspectives of new and existing ERP implementations. The challenges range from demonstrating effective audit controls immediately after an implementation to unraveling the complexities of an existing system that has organically changed over the years. The University of Arizona used an array of pretesting and process validations to prepare for an audit of 12,000 faculty/staff accounts and role assignments in the PeopleSoft payroll system six months after conversion. Pima Community College used strategic planning, business process revision, and data steward empowerment to rearchitect 1,700 faculty/staff accounts in the Banner ERP system.
