Main challenges
15 Pictet & Cie | Implementation of SAP-GRC with the Pictet Group
1. Decentralised operational risk management

Challenges were:
- Collecting Unit Risk Managers needs, with very different
maturity on the operational risk management process
- Various approaches (bottom up, top down, mixed)
- Implement a solution that suits all, within a reasonable budget

Integration of decentralised Unit Risk Managers throughout
the project

Because full organisation requires to download 1544
organisational units, others challenges were:

- Response time was too long for users with limited
access (Unit Risk Managers)

- Temporary solution : partial organisation
loaded into SAP-GRC only (567 org units)

- SAP has improved response time


- Automatic update of the organisation

Results of SAP-GRC implementation
20 Pictet & Cie | Implementation of SAP-GRC with the Pictet Group
Outcomes of the project
Positive:
Pictet Methodology fits in SAP-GRC (risk
valuation, risk categories)
Ops Risk Mgmt Framework more robust
Time saving: less administrative tasks
more added-value works
Heatmap immediate reporting tool, with
extended drill down / selection capabilities
Unique Ops Risks Register
Negative:
SAP-GRC seemed not matured enough:
we encountered a lot of bugs which tend to
demonstrate the tool was not tested
extensively. Examples:
Impossible to remove a Response from a
Risk
Risk Aspect worked on Org. Name, not Org.
ID
Ergonomics not user friendly
Graphical view incomplete
Response can be saved without compulsory
info (name)

But good reactivity of SAP to correct bugs
21 Pictet & Cie | Implementation of SAP-GRC with the Pictet Group
Most desired improvements
Response time
Automatic update of Organisation / Risk Thresholds
Underlying Risks: possibility to include or exclude them in the Heatmap
Validity extension of a Risk
