WEIR minerals is global market leader providing trusted technology and services. WEIR minerals manufactures slurry handling equipment and associated spare parts for abrasive high wear applications used in mining as well as in the niche oil sands and flue gas desulphurization markets. Products include pumps, hydro cyclones, valves, de-watering equipment and wear resistant linings. The division is present in key mining markets, including South and North America, Australia and Africa.
WEIR Group reported (2015) more than £ 2b in revenue, employing 14.700 people in 239 facilities across the world. WEIR Group headquarter is located in Glasgow, Scotland.
WEIR minerals deploys Infor ERP LN for their production and services operations. Faced with the requirement to ensure a proper Segregation of Duties, they set up an Excel based reporting, fetching data from Infor by standard reporting tools. This approach turns out to be a tedious and error-prone manual process.
After a thorough selection process, WEIR minerals selected Dynaflow Solutions as the GRC/SoD partner. With a proven track record in large multinational ERP contexts, Dynaflow delivered Compliance as a turn-key service.
“The standard Conflict Rule library turned out to be a big plus”, adds the IT-Manager Africa Region. “With so many pre-defined and validated conflict rules, we saved hundreds of man-hours to create these rules ourselves”. Dynaflow Compliance got broad market and analyst recognition, consistently marked as a leader by Hypatia Research.
Dynaflow delivers Compliance as a hosted service, allowing to run the first WEIR minerals scans within a few days. “We didn’t have to spend a single dollar at hardware, which saved us not only money, but also the time needed to get new hardware installed”, adds IT-Manager Africa Region.
On request, Dynaflow provides extra services to WEIR minerals, allowing WEIR to capitalize on the Infor experience of Dynaflow. Dynaflow is processing the data and conducting an initial analysis of the conflicts, providing WEIR and its implementation partner recommendations for adjustment of granted authorizations on different level (such as roles per employee, sessions per role, etc.).
WEIR minerals reports the following benefits:
- Dynaflow Compliance enables WEIR to avoid significant costs, while still complying with the requirements
- The standard Libraries helped WEIR to quickly get the first results. No need to create and maintain own conflict rule library.
- Dynaflow Compliance enabled WEIR to load standard Infor ERP LN authorizations and reporting, allowing a structured process in resolving or mitigating SoD conflicts, while providing evidence for auditors
- Dynaflow assisted WEIR in the initial analyses, helping them to focus on the problem areas.
