Easily secure confidential plans and budgets without IT support
Prophix is easy to use and consistent, allowing you to apply authorizations that limit or enforce transaction thresholds, approvals, or access to data.
A single security model that is flexible and extensible
Prophix leverages Microsoft Windows Active Directory to provide users with a single sign on (SSO) experience. Users do not have to remember multiple login names or passwords. Similarly, IT avoids the need to write any specialized code or invest in additional software. Using the Prophix Security Manager, administrators can easily manage all of the application’s security and data permissions. This ensures that budget contributors and reviewers only gain access to their assigned areas.
Companies define security based on functional roles (such as HR, sales, finance, and IT) or other groups. These groupings simplify the management of user access to sensitive data and to functions within the application.
Security, compatibility, and ease of use: Together at last
Other Microsoft SQL Server-compatible business intelligence (BI) solutions recognize the data access rules defined in Prophix’s software. This ability to easily harmonize the security framework with other systems equals reduced user maintenance.
Remember too, that Prophix’s workflow functionality provides a full audit trail, tracking all activities of the software’s users. This is just another way that Prophix delivers value.
"With the Excel-based budget planning, it would take probably take three to four months. And a lot of that time was spent on manipulating the data in Excel and getting it to roll out properly. When we went to Prophix, we were able to trim that down to more of a two-and-a-half month cycle, where most of the time was spent on analysis and actually getting into the data and understanding what we were seeing."
