Minimum hardware requirements will vary according to data volume. Experience indicates that most clients will need a current 64 bit version of Windows with at least 32 GB RAM. If they prefer to use an external SSD, it will need a free capacity of at least 1 TB SSD and a USB 3.0 port.
If your hardware doesn’t meet this minimum specification, zapliance can rent you either a notebook with the necessary software installed or a separate SSD.
The notebook has the necessary power and the zapliance software already installed on it will enable you to make an immediate start.
On completion of your order we ship the notebook to the address specified by you.
Our customers have the option of renting a Solid State Drive (SSD). This will also have enough free space for most clients. Use of an SSD for your zap audit also yields some other advantages.
For example, it will come with zapliance already installed and capable of being started on any computer programmed with a current 64 bit Windows operating system and having at least one USB 3.0 port available.
The robust construction of SSD hard disks is another advantage, and they are also faster than conventional hard drives.
The following scenarios describe situations often found in practice.
1. The external Auditor
You are an external auditor or consultant and would like to use zap Audit for the next SAP process audit at one of your clients. But either your computer or the zapliance notebook is not directly integrated into the client’s network.
2. The internal Auditor - Proof of Concept
You are an internal auditor and want to be involved in digitization of your company’s audit system. The IT department offers you the chance to host zap Audit on a powerful server. But there are some internal political and administrative issues on setting up the server. These will have to be settled.
Use of a server will enable several auditors to work in parallel on different parts of the project.
