Transaction Usage Analyser
Transaction Usage Analysis
Most of the companies that implement SAP systems use somewhere between 1000 to 2000 transactions but have more than 90,000 transactions in the system. It is good to know which transactions are being heavily used and which are not being used. There are logs in SAP which track activities but there is no easy way of accessing those logs and compiling the information. This tool tracks all the transactions performed in the system and acts as SAP Controls management tool.
Benefits of Tracking SAP Transaction Usage for SAP Controls
Develop Testing Plan:
Once the company reviews their transactions, they can design and refocus their training on the heavily used transactions in the SAP System.
SAP Controls on Role Design:
The report can also highlight some of the unused transactions in the system that belongs to roles. This will give the internal audit team information to use as they clean up some of the roles which have transactions which are not being used. This will act as a SAP Control for cleaning up unused and excessive transaction user access.
During upgrading, one of the problems is to identify the transactions which are affected during that upgrade. Armed with the transaction usage data, the audit team can compare the transactions which are affected during the upgrade and focus on testing those transactions
