Why do companies need Identity Management?

Identity Management (IdM) deals with the administration and maintenance of user roles and access rights of individual users to applications and cloud services.

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.

Authentication ensures the actual identity of the user. In the simplest case, it takes place via username and password, but multi-factor authentication or authentication based on biometric characteristics is also conceivable.

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 IdM as part of Identity & Access Management

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 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.

SAP Identity Management seamlessly documents the assignment of authorizations and ensures adherence to compliance guidelines.

 

Design the identity lifecycle with SAP Identity Management (IdM)

Reasons for SAP IdM:

  • 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.

SAP Identity Management offers a wide range of options for making the entire identity lifecycle more efficient:
