Protiviti’s Quarterly SAP Analytics Check-In: How to Optimize Your PCE Migration

Available On-Demand

Location: Virtual

SAP BusinessObjects is a well-established, on premises enterprise business intelligence system. The systems have commonly been installed and configured within an organization’s own data center, with the responsibility of server maintenance falling on the organization itself. SAP has introduced the SAP BusinessObjects Private Cloud Edition (PCE) initiative, which shifts this responsibility to SAP, thereby allowing the organization to dedicate resources to other projects. This shift also provides the organization with the ability to maintain a modern and secure environment within which they can derive better insights.

In this session, we will introduce the SAP BusinessObjects PCE initiative and describe: 

  • How to get started with SAP BusinessObjects PCE. 

  • The benefits of the system, including enhanced performance and increased profitability. 

  • How to use the SAP BusinessObjects PCE system for optimal results, enhancing performance and profitability.

Please note this webinar does not offer CPE credit.

Effectively Manage Enterprise Risk in Today's Connected Technology Ecosystem

On-Demand

Protiviti is proud to co-host with Fastpath a virtual session on "Effectively Managing Enterprise Risk in Today's Connected Technology Ecosystem".

In today’s world of interconnected business applications, succeeding at managing and controlling enterprise security is a must. Although past approaches for managing risk around access and segregation of duties are still relevant, evolutions in robotic process automation, data privacy, cybersecurity, and shadow IT require a different focus than general IT control reviews. A strong enterprise security program takes a holistic approach to mitigating risk by considering how technology, people, and processes can work together to address threats both inside and outside of your business. So, how can you instill confidence in your executive team that the enterprise security controls developed will be effective?

Join this webinar and learn how to:

  • Apply the people+process+technology equation to create a strong framework for your enterprise security strategy.
  • Convince leadership that the security framework you are proposing will be effective.
  • Empower employees to take control of enterprise security with more awareness of threats and methods that all users can follow to mitigate risk.
