User Management In The Fast Lane
Did you know that the cost for user management, including user master data, assigning privileges, and creating reports, is rising significantly?! When it comes to user management, most IT Departments are facing these common challenges:
- Requesting permissions can be very time-consuming via manual workflows.
- There is a need for reports on permissions and data access for internal and external audits. (Why does a user have a specific permission? Who approved the permission? Which users have the same critical permissions?)
- IT systems have to be integrated into the security concept, and new employees need fast access to business applications.
Fortunately for IT Departments everywhere, SAP has just launched a new rapid-deployment solution for user management that lowers costs and addresses these common challenges (and in less than 5 weeks!)
SAP NetWeaver Identity Management rapid-deployment solution significantly reduces costs by simplifying assignment of roles and privileges to users, and it reduces risk through compliance checks and remediation.
