QI Role Builder

Qintesi Role Builder is a tool developed by Qintesi with the aim of simplifying the management of roles and authorizations in SAP, adopting a “Business Oriented” approach.

Through our tool it will be possible to design roles consistent with organizational and corporate security logics; specifically, a methodology with the following characteristics will be implemented:

Creation of roles starting from the activities of a process through the concept of Business Role
The roles can be constructed as a simple association of activities, in the same way as a job description. The Role Builder will take care of assigning the associated transactions and the related authorization objects.

Organizational aggregate
Following an analysis of the objects and related field values ​​actually used, the related information will be aggregated by linking it to company organizational positions or groupings of the same. Therefore, each user, through their corporate organizational position, will be authorized to certain companies, divisions, release codes, etc.

Technical role
The intersection between the information present in the roles and the permissions contained in the Aggregates will determine the role that can actually be assigned to the users of a specific company function. The Technical Roles will update automatically with each variation of the connected Business Role and/or the related Aggregate.

The Role Builder integrates and completes the standard functions, allowing you to have a tool capable of designing roles from a business perspective with the guarantee of the highest degree of security from an SOD, GDPR and ITCP perspective.

QI Data Privacy

QI Data Privacy is the tool developed by Qintesi to integrate the SAP offer in the Data Protection area. It manages data discovery and the data anonymization process in SAP systems, both from a GDPR perspective and for any other need in the privacy field. In particular, QI Data Privacy supports the following features: 

Data Discovery
It identifies data in SAP systems, suggesting any tables/data elements/domains to be considered in the analysis.

Retention policy management
It allows you to define retention rules that can be customized on the basis of a time date (e.g. Business partner without handling for a certain number of years), external inputs (e.g. ID number, policy number, supplier code) or through rules complex (e.g. combination of date and time, external inputs and enhancement of certain fields). Each rule can be assigned to a single system, field, field category or combination thereof.

Scrambling and Anonymization 
It manages the anonymization of data in SAP ensuring, where possible, the referential integrity of the same. The tool supports various anonymization algorithms as well as real scrambling models, with the possibility of leaving any analysis and reporting dimensions unchanged (e.g. geographical area of ​​origin). The solution is also designed to manage adequate reporting and an iterative workflow, with customizable approval levels, necessary before anonymizing the actual data, and with the support of temporary rollback functions with AES 256 encryption systems.

QI Cybersecurity Cockpit

Qintesi has developed the Cybersecurity Cockpit with the aim of intercepting any security issues in real time (e.g. assigning critical permissions, changing system parameters, creating Remote Function Calls, etc.) and supporting the determination of appropriate protection measures in order to provide an overview of the security level of the applications that characterize the entire SAP architecture.

Through the Cybersecurity Cockpit, the customer always has all SAP systems under control and, in case of criticality, is sure to promptly identify it and manage it efficiently, through an iterative process that includes the following phases: 

  • Cyber ​​Security Analysis with possible identification of the Security Issue
  • Report to the control/system owner
  • Definition of a corrective action
  • Monitoring of any remedial plan and new Cyber ​​Security Analysis

 

The QI Cybersecurity Cockpit guarantees customers the highest level of control and efficiency in managing the security of SAP systems.

Fatturazione elettronica

Qintesi has developed a high level of expertise in the field of electronic invoicing thanks to numerous implementation projects on the SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA system.

On the basis of the requirements and characteristics of each customer, it is the ideal partner to identify and implement the best solution, with the aim of exploiting the mandatory requirements provided for by the legislation also to optimize, centralize and automate the existing accounting processes relating to the active cycle, passive cycle and self-billing/integrations.

The SAP solution (eDocument Processing with SAP Cloud Platform Integration) offers considerable potential and allows complete end-to-end integration with the external systems of the authorities and in particular for the Italian legislation with the Interchange System (ES).

Qintesi, based on the needs of each customer, proposes a design approach aimed at centralizing and contextualizing the accounting flows in place in such a way as to simplify and facilitate the implementation of automatic accounting flows, optimize the operations of users with the reduction of recording latency times and of errors.

Gruppo IVA

Qintesi offers its customers a specific solution for the creation and management of the VAT Group.

This consists in the possibility, for client companies, of incorporating a VAT Group, within which all transactions relating to the sale of goods and the provision of intra-group services are not relevant for the purposes of applying VAT. At the same time, the operations of a subject that is a member of the VAT Group are considered to have been carried out by the VAT Group itself. This entails a significant economic advantage for the companies belonging to the Group.

The solution is implemented on SAP Business Technology Platform and is characterized by a user experience based on FIORI/UI5. Through this “VAT Group” portal, client companies can manage all the fundamental aspects of managing VAT registers, e.g. Settlements (monthly or periodic), internal compensation relating to VAT payments, Esterometer Management, Pro Rata and finally, the electronic (and direct) submission of the annual return of all the companies belonging to the Group.

Qintesi guarantees customers the constant evolution of the solution in line with the innovations for the VAT Group legislation.

Moreover, we are able to develop, upon customer request, specific add-ons capable of fully satisfying further specific requirements relating to VAT management even if not directly governed by tax legislation.

BlackLine

Qintesi has entered into a partnership with BlackLine, a leading company in the field of softwares for the automation and the advanced financial control. 

The cloud-based Blackline solutions support critical finance and accounting processes – including financial close, bank reconciliation, intra-company accounting and pre-audit controls – and modernize financial and accounting processes to drive greater productivity.

In addition to automating processes, thus enabling accounting professionals to get their jobs done faster and with greater control, BlackLine solutions enable companies to move beyond the antiquated record-to-report process and offer dynamic workflows integrated in a highly automated and real-time framework, known as Continuous Accounting: disclosure is available at every stage of the assessment and closure process, accounting errors are immediately detected before they generate problems, the results of estimates and adjustments reveal immediately their effects on financial, economic and patrimonial measures. The process, therefore, from sequential becomes dynamic and interactive.
