SAP GRC and Office of the CFO podcasts: Overview

As I've posted earlier, I switched roles at SAP and am now in a business development role in the Governance, Risk and Compliance business unit. We had a huge "village" or display area at Sapphire (although as mentioned, yours truly was at an outpost pod, demo-ing our Sarbanes-Oxley solutions). There was a lot of interest in our village and I think that we were one of the more popular areas of the show (even if we were at the end of the half-mile show floor).
Anyway, Thomas had this cool microphone attachment for his iPod Nano and was doing some podcasting. I set him up with two conversations with my boss, Denise Broady. Denise has been at SAP for 6 years (coming over with the TopTier acquisition) and leads the Office of the CFO Center of Excellence (which is a business development group with responsibilities for a set of solutions targeted at the CFO's organization: Access Control, Process Control, Enterprise Risk Management, Global Trade Solutions, Environmental Compliance, Employee Health & Safety and eSourcing, with likely more to come).

In these podcasts, she does a good job of explaining SAP's holistic GRC strategy and a bit about how we are going to market with these products. Break out the popcorn, it's good stuff.
