Employee Central Integration with Microsoft Active Directory

Employees in an organization use Active directory to access the systems in the organization’s network. For e.g. when a user logs into a computer that is part of the Microsoft Windows domain, active directory checks the submitted password and determines whether a user is allowed to login to the network. SuccessFactors Employee Central now has a packaged integration to connect with Microsoft Active Directory. The integration supports creation of user account in Active Directory for new hires added to Employee Central, deactivation of user account on termination of employee, and synchronization of employee master data changes. The product manager for this integration is Yamini Polisetty

SAP IDM Integration with SuccessFactors Employee Central

Feature Description:  SAP Identity Management 8.0 (IDM) now connects with SuccessFactors Employee Central. Two scenarios are supported. In the first scenario, user accounts can be managed in SuccessFactors Employee Central and identity propagation can be initiated in SuccessFactors Employee Central and sent to SAP IDM, which will then propagate the information to all other SAP and 3rd Party systems connected to IDM.
