SAP NetWeaver Identity Management:
What’s Up and Coming in 2010
2010 will see a number of enhancements and new features for SAP NetWeaver Identity Management.
In January, we released SP stack 4 for SAP NetWeaver Identity Management, which includes functional and performance enhancements for the Identity Center, user interface enhancements for custom code, as well as enhanced integration capabilities for SAP BusinessObjects Access Control, SAP’s GRC solution. Interested in all the details? Listen to SAP’s development architect John-Eric Setsaas explain the contents of SP 4 in this recorded expert session, available in SAP’s online Learning Map for SAP NetWeaver Identity Management on the SAP Service Marketplace:

In early summer, SAP plans to release the first Enhancement Package for SAP NetWeaver Identity Management, which will contain the Identity Provider functionality for SAML 2.0-based single sign-on.
Finally, at the end of the year, we’ll head into ramp-up for the brandnew release 7.2. New and improved features will include the areas of role management, identity federation, and reporting.
