SAP Access Control Upgrade & Migration

SAP GRC Access Control 5.3 is built on a technology that does not allow extensive customizing. Fortunately, SAP has improved the situation with versions 10.0 and 10.1. Certain features, such as improved firefighting, reporting and user interfaces and the integration of new technology such as HANA or Fiori, are only provided with the latest version (10.1).

SAP Access Control (GRC) Product Launch Path

Given that version 5.3 uses different technology than version 10.x, a migration path is required. Whereas moving from version 10.0 to 10.1, is considered an upgrade. SAP provides standard tools supporting the migration. Nevertheless, further accelerators and a proven methodology are required for ensuring data consistency and traceability.
