To successfully revamp your organization’s Enterprise Resource Planning system security, it is important that you approach it from a strategic perspective rather than as a simple technical solution. Improving JDE Security has more to do with capturing requirements and creating a well-thought design. It must take into account the company culture, structure, compliance, and regulatory requirements as well as how the internal business functions interact with each other. With that understanding, it becomes easier to review published best practices and then use them as a guide to create your own flavor. Otherwise, the users will be disrupted, processes will become intertwined with access woes and the whole security revamp will fall on its face, despite having the best tools and experts on hand.
