AlexCan you explain what is meant by AD (active directory) group security? How can that be used to give access in AX? And how would it subvert the out of box SoD functionality?
I got a very expensive quote from fastpath. Is there other segregation of duties software from 3rd party?
My name is Paul Vaughan and I am currently employed with an MCA Connect, a Dynamics Partner. Prior to coming to MCA Connect I was a user and implementer around AX 2012 for the company where I worked. We chose to purchase the Fastpath suite of products to help us not only with SOD needs but with Licensing control and true-up along with Base Data change tracking. Their tool allowed me as a user to identify where we had license exposure that would have cost our company several thousand dollars. We were able to correct that exposure by using the Fastpath tool to easily drill down to the Permission level where the license is identified.
When I came to work for MCA Connect 4 years ago, we partnered with Fastpath to create an offering to our clients using their Fastpath Assure tool doing that same analysis identification and resolution as I did when I was a customer. We have been able to help our clients identify on the low end around $350K of exposure to a high end of around $3 million. I wanted to share this with you to help you see a possible way to get a very quick ROI on your investment in their product.
I could go on about the short comings of SOD out-of-the-box in Dynamics but that would be for another time.
Good luck in your decision. I hope this helps provide a possible way to see the value of the investment in the Fastpath tools.
Thanks for the insight. Has anybody use Arbela Security Manager (ASM) as well?
Anything to compare with Fastpath?
