This primarily involves authenticating and authorizing users according to their role in the company, i.e., establishing their identity and the associated access rights. Identity Management is the digital representation of a person in a company with the collected personal data from the various applications. Ideally, this is done on the basis of one or a few leading sources for the sovereignty of data (keyword: data quality).
A person can also have multiple identities. These are collectively linked to the person in an Identity Management solution. Thus, the IdM system is able to manage different identities distributed on different systems. Each user account is completely covered by the user lifecycle of the persons to be managed.
After successful authentication, the user must be correctly authorized. This means providing them with exactly the access rights and information they need to perform their work. The roles to which a user is assigned and the authorizations he or she has are usually stored in a database or an identity and access management system such as SAP Identity Management (SAP IdM).

SAP Identity Management focuses on the traceable management and consistent distribution of digital identities throughout their lifecycle – assignment, repeated adjustments, deletion. The SAP IdM 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 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 a hybrid system landscape and in the communication between on-premise and cloud systems, the products ensure complete integration.
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 means that passwords can be made truly secure without restricting user convenience too much. Constantly changing passwords for each application is a thing of the past, and password resets are minimized. You also avoid duplicate administration efforts in your IT and free up valuable resources.
Increased security through compliance and automation of identity lifecycle processes
Significantly accelerated provision of users and authorizations for new users
Reduction of manual administration effort
Revocation of authorizations, blocking of users and release of licenses when an employee leaves the company
Increased quality of personal data through centralized maintenance from one or a few sources
Fulfillment of multiple reporting requirements from auditors and internal committees with the central use of an IdM solution
The SAP solution for enterprise-wide, cross-platform management of identities in the company is called SAP Identity Management (IdM). The management of identities is based on the standardized processes for the identity lifecycle − from entry through various changes (change of department, promotion, etc.) to leaving the company. Both permanent employees (internals) and all forms of external employees (partners, consultants, etc.) and even customers are considered.
SAP IdM enables full integration with SAP on-premise systems and also realizes a connection to SAP cloud applications with SAP Identity Provisioning Service (IPS) and SAP Identity Authentication Service (IAS). This ensures the management and control of users and their access throughout the entire user lifecycle. Ideally, Identity & Access Management communicates as a central unit with all connected systems via so-called IdM connectors.
Automatic provisioning of users (onboarding and offboarding)
Workflow management and self-services
Role-based access control and access governance
Reporting, audit & compliance
The IBsolution Standard Process Package for SAP IdM is perfectly suited for the implementation of SAP Identity Management (IdM) − also in your company. This is because many processes, for example for employee entry, position or department changes and exit, are similar in many companies. Our preconfigured solution already covers more than 80% of your individual requirements. This saves you time and money when implementing SAP IdM.
