Turnkey Consulting expands to New Zealand


Global SAP security specialist Turnkey Consulting will add to its network of offices, with the opening of an office in New Zealand.

Already operating in Australia for 10 years, Turnkey also has regional operations in Malaysia and Singapore. The company, which specialises in governance, risk and compliance and IT security for organisations running SAP solutions, is the only organisation in the Asia Pacific region to hold SAP Recognised Expertise for Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) and will be the sole provider of specialist security services in New Zealand, including its GRC as a Service offering, Bedrock, which launched in June this year.

Aiden Moore, who has spent four years working at Turnkey’s UK headquarters in London, will be based in Auckland and lead the new venture.

“Turnkey has more than proved its credentials with 10 years of successful business operations in Australia and this is an ideal time to bring its skills and experience to the New Zealand market. SAP customers in the region are scaling up to take a holistic view of their technical implementations and SAP security and controls are a growing concern,” said Moore. “We can assess pain points and provide guidance and practical solutions, delivered by a team with skills across all SAP security products.”

Robert Budic, who established Turnkey in Australia in 2007, said, “Throughout our 10-year tenure in Australia, we have been rigorous about ensuring that Turnkey provides thought leadership around the latest SAP and security developments and on training and retaining an A-list team of consultants.

“SAP’s product portfolio has evolved significantly over the past couple of years, but we have developed in-depth knowledge and methodologies around the current toolsets, including GRC and Identity Management, as well as cloud based security technologies like Identity and Access Governance. We combine this technical expertise with an appreciation of the business drivers and audit requirements that demand these tools.  This puts us in the ideal position to continue to grow our customer base in Australia and, under Aiden’s expert watch, expand our operations to New Zealand.”

Turnkey also has offices in Germany and the US.
