How to BlackBox an accounting process flow?

Take a typical Invoice processing flow. When an invoice is received in the back-end system, an accountant verifies and processes the invoice as shown in pic-A1. Due to cybersecurity or changing business needs, you want to amend the process which requires additional approval (using multi-factor authentication for instance) when the invoice amount exceeds the threshold (in this example 100,000/-).

The conventional way of handling the change request is to, plan a new project, build a team, get the analysis done, scope the project, and change the back-end code base, which not only involves time/cost but is also disruptive in nature.

Here is how the Pivot Cloud Platform handles the change. DevOps configures multi-factor authentication service in Pivot Cloud Platform Service Console to define the change and attaches the newly defined service as shown in the pic -A2. Within a day, the amended process is fully functional without disruption to core services.
