After ten years of business success in Australia, global SAP security specialist Turnkey Consulting is opening an office in New Zealand. The move expands the company’s presence in the Asia Pacific region where, along with Australian bases in Sydney and Melbourne, it has operations in Malaysia and Singapore.
Turnkey is the only organisation in the Asia Pacific region to hold SAP Recognised Expertise for Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) and will be the sole provider of specialist security services in New Zealand. These include its GRC as a Service offering, Bedrock, which it launched in June this year.
Aiden Moore, who has spent four years working at Turnkey’s UK headquarters in London, will head up the new venture. Based in Auckland, his focus is SAP customers across a wide variety of industries in the private and public sector.
Commenting on the move, Moore says: “Turnkey has more than proved its credentials with 10 years of successful business operations in Australia and this is an ideal time to bring its skills and experience to the New Zealand market. SAP customers in the region are scaling up to take a holistic view of their technical implementations and SAP security and controls are a growing concern. We can assess pain points and provide guidance and practical solutions, delivered by a team with skills across all SAP security products.”
Robert Budic, who established Turnkey in Australia in 2007, explains: “Throughout our ten-year tenure in Australia, we have been rigorous about ensuring that Turnkey provides thought leadership around the latest SAP and security developments and on training and retaining an A-list team of consultants.
SAP customers in the region are scaling up to take a holistic view of their technical implementations and SAP security and controls are a growing concern.
Budic adds,”SAP’s product portfolio has evolved significantly over the past couple of years, but we have developed in-depth knowledge and methodologies around the current toolsets, including GRC and Identity Management, as well as cloud based security technologies like Identity and Access Governance. Turnkey aims to combine this technical expertise with an appreciation of the business drivers and audit requirements that demand these tools. This puts us in the ideal position to continue to grow our customer base in Australia and, under Aiden’s expert watch, expand our operations to New Zealand.”
