Oracle's enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is among the biggest business packages ever released. Designed to automate multiple enterprise and corporate operations and processes, Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) is a very large system of more than 130 integrated business applications and IT infrastructure modules. Many organizations looking for robust and integrated solutions adopt this suite. Security, Audit and Control Features Oracle E-Business Suite, 3rd Edition, as well as its previous editions, is the major published reference covering the security, audit and control points of view and requirements. Business regulatory compliance and the complexity of EBS technology make this publication a practical tool and source of reference for many audiences, including business executives and managers, IT auditors, and security officers. This publication is also a unique reference that covers specific Oracle EBS Release (R) 12 auditing aspects with a formal methodology, an IT audit framework and a risk-control approach.
Two aspects of the book are of particular note. First, there is a balance between techniques and technology on one side and audit framework and methodology on the other. Second, the "popularization" of ERP auditing concepts with a risk-based audit framework is discussed and working tools and adapted templates are provided. These are based on best practices and models (including Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission [COSO], COBIT and the Information Technology Assurance Framework [ITAF]) and are provided to assist in conducting practical audit and assurance activities on EBS built-in processes.
The publication aims to adapt existing auditing techniques into an Oracle EBS context to facilitate the audit "contextualization" with an audit framework and practical information on risks, key controls, testing procedures, etc.
The book is a practical introduction to the management of ERP-based operations and risks within Oracle EBS R 12, financial accounting and expenditure business cycles.
The publication discusses newer topics than the second edition. It includes about 150 pages of audit work templates as part of an audit/assurance program. useful templates are provided for EBS business processes including:
Security, Audit and Control Features Oracle E-Business Suite, 3rd Edition, provides a very good audit framework, templates, known risks and common key controls for each EBS process (financial scope). In specific operational circumstances and contexts, there may be additional risks not included in this book and others may not apply. Adaptation to specific situations is the auditor's challenge and still requires appropriate judgment.--Mustapha Benmahbous, Ph.D., CISA, CISM - ISACA Journal, Volume 6, 2010
