With the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for citizens of the European Union (EU), enterprises everywhere are evaluating a broad range of compliance measures – and SAP GDPR compliance is at the top of the list.

GDPR is a set of personal privacy laws that gives EU citizens explicit control over the use of their personally identifiable information (PII) when it is used by organizations and their partners anywhere. EU citizens must implicitly agree to specific uses of their PII, and they can opt out of any activity and require companies to delete all their PII by taking advantage of the “right to be forgotten.” Fines for failure to comply with may be as high as 4% of a company’s global revenue.

While GDPR compliance can be challenging for organizations at a number of levels, SAP GDPR compliance is especially difficult. Many of the world’s largest enterprises use Sybase SAP applications and SAP data for business-critical operations. From ECC and HR to CRM and Finance, SAP applications contain much of the data that capture, use and analyze – including the personal information of EU citizens that is now regulated by the GDPR.

The ability to anonymize and/or delete individual customer records is key to SAP GDPR compliance. That’s where Qlik Gold Client® can help enterprises.
