SAP Cloud Identity

Fully map the identity lifecycle in the cloud with SAP Cloud Identity products


Identity Lifecycle in the cloud

To provision users and authorizations and perform risk checks, SAP offers a bundle of Cloud Identity products. These not only enable authentication, provisioning and auditing of cloud systems, but also communication and interface between cloud and on-premise SAP systems. Thus, SAP Cloud Services ensure provisioning and authentication of users through an identity management system in SAP cloud systems.

The reality is hybrid

The path to the cloud is also marked out in identity & access management. But not all companies are yet following this trend at the speed software manufacturers had hoped. In reality, hybrid scenarios predominate, bringing with them entirely new challenges for the management and distribution of roles and digital identities.

Hybrid today often means that complex workflows in SAP Identity Management are handled on-premise and transferred to the cloud via various interfaces. SAP Cloud Services enable the connection of on-premise systems to the cloud infrastructure through interfaces.

This means that operation of the existing system landscape with an identity management system is still possible and is expanded to include the connection of additional systems. This is an ideal solution for mapping the identity lifecycle across all systems with little effort and without cost-intensive new acquisitions.

We help you optimize the way you work with cloud-based SAP solutions for identity and access management.

Solutions for Identity & Access Management

SAP Cloud Identity solutions enable authentication (IAS), single sign-on (SSO) and provisioning (IPS) against SAP cloud systems. SAP Cloud Identity Access Governance (IAG) provides the ability to manage workflows, risk checks and emergency access. Especially in hybrid system landscapes and in the communication between on-premise and cloud systems, the SAP Cloud Identity products create complete integration.

SAP Identity Management focuses on the traceable management and consistent distribution of digital identities throughout their lifecycle – assignment, repeated adjustments, deletion. The solution makes it possible to flexibly map individual workflows so that required user accounts, roles, and authorizations can be assigned in a rule-based and automated manner.

SAP Single Sign-On enables end-to-end authentication against SAP and non-SAP applications. Central management of access data increases security, as only one user ID is required for all applications. This replaces the need to constantly change passwords for each application and minimizes password resets.
