A recent survey, carried out by the Ponemon Institute revealed that many companies are behind schedule to achieve General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance by the 25th May deadline. 48% of the 1000 companies that responded said that they did not expect to be compliant by the May 25 deadline.
Within the sphere of businesses using SAP software the causes for this are numerous. Many businesses have found a distinct lack of credible expertise; people with knowledge of both the law and SAP technologies. SAP landscapes can be large, disparate and complex and finding people who understand them is challenging.
