SOD Violations Manager for Oracle E-Business Suite

Solution Summary

SOD Violations Manager (SOD VM) for Oracle E-Business Suite is a cost effective Segregation of Duties user access control solution. SOD VM unravels EBS's complex access model so you can see who has access to what capabilities. Once you define conflicting capabilities, SOD VM targets the violations, across responsibilities, roles, business groups, ledgers, operating units, menus, functions, and forms.

Effective SOD controls require the expertise built into software solutions that go beyond the Responsibility level to actual Functions and configurations that impact accessibility and minimize false positive results. SOD VM is an alternative to Oracle's offering that deploys faster, reduces the real SOD risks, and will satisfy your auditors.

Solution Profile

When used with SOD VM, these Absolute Technologies products enrich your SOD controls options.

► With Application Auditor, SOD VM offers preventive SOD conflict controls, so you can stop the assignment of a Responsibility that would create an SOD violation for the user. You can also prevent changes to Responsibility and Menu configuration changes that would create violations based on the current set of User-Responsibility assignments in your EBS environment.

► With ProView APEX, SOD VM provides extensive analysis and ad hoc reporting, report subscriptions, plus the efficiency of function grouping.

► With ProVision Responsibilities, SOD VM will check every new Responsibility request for violations, and route the requests to approvers. With the knowledge of potential SOD violations, the approvers can approve the request, approve SOD policy exemptions for the user, or reject the request

It becomes easy to work with External Financial Auditors, since SOD VM documents policies and automates the SOD audit. If there are disputes, once the policy or EBS-related decisions have been made, it is a trivial task to adjust SOD VM's conflict definitions. After you fix any remaining violations, you achieve 100% SOD compliance. The Auditors will have proved you have an effective, automated solution. Under PCAOB Auditing Standard No. 5, "the auditor may conclude that the automated application control continues to be effective without repeating the prior year's specific tests", which may result in reduced fees.


Distinguishing Features

SOD VM is available both on premise or as SAAS in our Cloud.

► SOD VM is based on periodic or on-demand snapshots of EBS User access and your library of defined SOD conflicts.

► SOD VM is packaged with a set of browser-based, interactive, parameter-driven online reports showing defined function conflicts, user access menu hierarchies, and SOD user violations.

► You can set up User Lists. When you run an SOD snapshot, you can choose only to audit those on the User List, or audit everyone else and exclude those on the list.

► It takes less than two days to review the library of pre-defined conflicting functions, adjust it for your organization's needs, and run the first snapshot SOD violation baseline. You're able to start the analysis and plan remediation activities.

► Three major E-Business Suite hosting service providers have approved SOD Violations Manager. Installation and operations meet their standards for reliability, without impacting E-Business Suite up time for their customers.
