Learning Objectives

Reading this article, you will learn how to:

  • Configure technical settings that are prerequisites for a functional SAP Assurance and Compliance system
  • Navigate around the system (SAP HANA and SAP ABAP) to perform important and specific customizing activities
  • Customize activities specific to SAP Fraud Management and SAP Audit Management
Key Concept

SAP Assurance and Compliance software is the latest addition to the SAP GRC product suite. It  seeks to address fraud and audit challenges in the business environment. The product helps organizations to better manage their audit cycle and provides uncanny insight into fraud detection, prevention, and investigation. This product, solely based on the SAP HANA database, can perform in-depth analysis of large amounts of business data and leads to increased flexibility of reporting.

The essence of this article is to highlight technical configurations and elements that are specific to SAP Assurance and Compliance software to have a system ready for productive functional use of the product. I discuss the following important technical activities that need to be performed after the successful installation of the add-on software component SAP Fraud Management 1.1 (SAPFRA 110, which runs on SAP NetWeaver ABAP 7.4) for SAP Assurance and Compliance software:

  • Maintenance of PFCG (Profile Generator) ABAP roles and profile generation
  • Maintenance of profile parameters
  • Maintenance of settings for SAP HANA content activation
  • Configuration of SAP HANA database connection
  • Configuration of task lists
  • Maintenance of time data parameters
  • Setup of SAP Net Weaver Gateway
  • Configuration of Open Data Protocol (ODP) technical services

SAP Assurance and Compliance software is made up of two applications: SAP Fraud Management and SAP Audit Management. These systems are based on the SAP HANA database and sit on SAP NetWeaver ABAP 7.4.
