Time Saving SoD for Dynamics AX
In Hamamatsu’s industry, security around separation of duties (SoD) is a critical responsibility of the IT staff, which means having the ability to identify, manage, and eliminate risk wherever possible. Auditors look very closely at how security roles are configured in a company’s ERP, which is where Hamamatsu ran into problems.
The company uses Microsoft Dynamics AX, however, AX does not make it easy to manage roles, users, privileges, and duties, forcing IT Business Analyst Amy Padovani to handle all SoD management manually. “I had to go through Dynamics AX, pull all the information I needed together, export that information into an Excel spreadsheet, and send those gigantic files to our auditors,” explains Amy. “The process took weeks to complete.”
