Novell Wins ERP Executive Best of SAPPHIRE NOW for Excellence in Product Innovation

8 June 2010

Novell was awarded the ERP Executive Best of SAPPHIRE NOW Award at SAPPHIRE NOW 2010 Annual Conference in Orlando. Novell was recognized in the category of Excellence in Product Innovation for their Novell® Compliance Management Platform extension for SAP® environments.

"We have worked very closely with SAP to deliver a solution that solves customers' needs for continuous compliance and greater risk visibility. It is an honor to be recognized for our innovation and execution by ERP Executive magazine," said Leo Castro, Senior Solutions Marketing Manager, Compliance Management, Novell. "Risk management is a top concern for executives, which is why Novell recently partnered with SAP to create a solution that provides continuous compliance as a first step toward better risk visibility. With the joint solution, organizations gain insight into how compliance impacts their ability to meet business objectives."

Amit Bendov, Editor of ERP Executive, added, "This award is meant to recognize a unique solution or technology that will dramatically impact or change the current market. We are pleased to acknowledge Novell for their accomplishments."

Built on the industry-unique Novell Compliance Management Platform, the extension for SAP environments allows customers to leverage the seamless integration between Novell's industry-leading identity, access and security management products. Other identity and access management (IAM) vendors have talked about delivering this level of integration, but Novell is the only vendor to drive this value in SAP environments.

Novell Compliance Management Platform extension for SAP environments is the first and only major solution that is certified for SAP BusinessObjects GRC Access Control. This solution enhances SAP customers' ability to comply with security mandates and government regulations by providing a real-time, holistic view of user activities in the enterprise.

The combination the Novell Compliance Management Platform, SAP ERP application and SAP BusinessObjects governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) solutions allow enterprises to always know who is doing what, and if they're authorized. Automating this process saves time and money by minimizing the duplication of effort and the potential for error.
