Enterprise Resource Planning
The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) WG seeks to develop best practices to enable organizations that run their business on large ERP implementations, such as SAP or Oracle applications, to securely migrate to and operate in cloud environments. Every ERP deployment is something that is unique to each organization. In most cases organizations spend months if not years customizing their SAP or Oracle implementations and also spend a significant amount of money with third party contractors to get the implementations done. This makes standard security measures more difficult to implement due to the differences of each deployment. With the complexity of these large implementations, combined with the criticality of data and processes housed in these applications, it is imperative that industry best practices be established to provide companies with security guidelines when migrating to the cloud in order to protect the organization’s critical infrastructure.
