After having worked on GRC Process Controls (PC) 2.5, 3.0 and also with some hands on with 10.0, it’s great to have the opportunity to look at the latest SAP offerings within GRC PC 10.1. Ramp up testing is always great learning experience and I am lucky to have experienced this one.

I’m sure there is curiosity around the new version and therefore I thought I’d share some of my observations.

Although the look and feel seems similar to 10.0, we do have some new features for Process Controls with version 10.1.

1.  Assessments -> Planner

New survey categories introduced within the Planner “Disclosure Survey” which can be conducted at Organization, Sub process and Control level.

2.  Assessments -> Questions Library

Two new Question categories have been introduced:

  • Workshop Survey
  • Disclosure Survey

3.   Assessments -> Survey Library

Two new Survey categories have been introduced:

  • Workshop Survey
  • Disclosure Survey

4.  Assessments -> Reports

There have been 3 introductions within the list of PC evaluation reports.

Assessment Survey Details report provides detailed information in addition to the overview Assessment Survey Results report. Some of these details include Question, Answer, Assessment Processor, Comments, Case ID, etc thus providing a deep dive into the assessment details. Earlier versions had drill down capability to fetch such information about assessments. But with detailed reports mass processing becomes much easier.

With the introduction of Disclosure Surveys, 2 new reports related to this survey category have been introduced:

Disclosure Survey Details as the name suggests, provides a deep dive into the survey results.

Disclosure Survey Status as the name suggests, provides information about the status of the survey.

5.   Side Panel

With PC 10.1 we see the introduction of Side Panels. These provide additional overview information which helps us connect between for example: Organizations and assessments in one go. Although these may require additional configuration.

6.    SPRO changes

Import and export of business rules functionality is new within GRC 10.1. This functionality will enable SAP delivered business rules (configurable / programmed) to be imported into the GRC system and exported to other systems too by converting them to a downloadable format (like XML).

In addition to the above, with 10.1 SAP has also included features like Role-based Entry pages, Google like search and End to End Evaluations using offline Adobe forms which can be configured based on client’s requirements.

I’m sure there is still more that I will discover as I spend more time with GRC PC 10.1. I will keep you posted on more findings and experiences!

    Hi Malhotra,

    I’m interested in the entry pages and the side panels. I have already the configuration guide from SAP but it is too fragmentary. I didn’t understand how to create or change these new functions. There is also no trivial example to reproduce the steps.
    Do you have a better explanation of this feature?

    Thanks a lot

    Cheers Timo
