Upgrading to GRC 12: A Race Against Time! 

It seems as if we are in a constant race against time to ensure our software stays within the mainstream maintenance window – most notable as of late is the sunsetting of SAP ERP (ECC) 6.0. While organizations may be at varying steps on their S/4HANA journey, we encourage them to not lose sight of their GRC application reaching the end of its mainstream maintenance December 31 of this year.

Although still a few months out, organizations who are running Access Control, Process Control or Risk Management 10.x should be planning to upgrade to GRC 12 right now. For more information on how Protiviti can help your organization, email [email protected]
