BANGALORE: IT services provider Novell, Inc .and Logica Management Consulting, consulting arm of leading IT and business services company, today announced their partnership for bringing a combined governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) offering with SAP to the market.

The partnership, announced at the SAP GRC 2009 Conference this week, enables Logica, to provide an enterprise-wide risk management approach. Both Novell and Logica are SAP-certified partners, said a press release.

Regulatory requirements and financial market pressures increase with firms’ necessity of transparency about risk management. Today, the IT infrastructure is a mass of incompatible systems with unique risk controls and policies, making compliance and risk management complex, time-consuming and costly.

Logica helps clients to implement three main modules of SAP GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance) – Access Control, Process Control and Risk Management. Logica is the first worldwide partner of SAP on SAP GRC solution, except for external auditors.

These SAP modules enable companies to centralize information coming from applicative environments in order to bring in transparency on company-related risks.

Markus J. Krauss, vice president Identity and Security Management, Novell EMEA said "We are delighted to work closely with Logica on bringing a combined GRC offering for SAP customers to the market. This offering includes integrated governance, risk and compliance solutions to help bridge the gap between business processes and IT security and controls.”

He added that the industry knowledge, technical excellence, delivery expertise and focus on evolving business as well as IT processes will ensure that our customers reduce risk, lower costs and improve their business performance by deploying these solutions. We are committed to maximize the leverage of our customer´s SAP investments.

Sébastien Brasseur, director, SAP GRC business lead at Logica, said “With Novell, we will ideally extend our end-to-end approach. Most of our clients are looking to integrate their access management and Identity Management solutions.”

He added that in partnership with Novell, they would be able to provide a comprehensive enterprise-wide risk management approach and they look forward to bringing these benefits to our clients.
