If you are a security professional who has wondered if ASUG had anything to offer you, an upcoming virtual focus group may be the perfect opportunity for you to take that first step. All employees of ASUG member organizations are encouraged to participate in ASUG-sponsored activities, and there is no additional charge to you to register for a logon ID to ASUG.com. The Security SIG is part of the Business Integration, Technology, and Infrastructure (BITI) SIG Community, and I would like to invite security professionals who have not yet taken the plunge to consider joining us.
On December 10, Torgeir Pederson, Product Manager at SAP Labs Norway, will be presenting a web cast on SAP’s Identity Management (IdM) solution. This presentation was given as session SIM255 at SAP TechEd in Las Vegas, so if you missed TechEd or had a time conflict that prevented you from participating, you have a second chance to hear this presentation and participate in the interactive discussion. Influence Focus Groups are one of ASUG’s two formats for Influence activities, aimed at giving ASUG members a voice in solution enhancement of SAP products. Influence Focus Groups are geared towards validating and prioritizing existing requirements, rather than the longer term commitment of delivering a set of functional requirements.
In this web cast, Torgeir will discuss the product strategy and various adoption scenarios, including migration from Central User Administration. He will also explain SAP’s vision of how IdM will complement the functionality in SAP’s GRC suite. Registration for this web cast is open on ASUG’s Community Calendar. I hope that some first time ASUG participants decide to join us for this event. If you have any questions about this event or ASUG’s Security SIG, feel free to post questions here or on ASUG’s Security SIG discussion forum.
