SAP NetWeaver Identity Management software is a tool used to manage user access, provide user access according to current business roles, and manage passwords with self-service capabilities and approval workflows. It helps companies to centrally manage their user accounts (identities) in a complex system landscape. This includes both SAP and non-SAP systems. The solution provides an authoritative, single source of user information and enables self-service management of user information and authorizations using workflow technology.
The main Functions of SAP NetWeaver Identity Management include:Provisioning, Workflow & Approvals
Business rules and policies drive assignment and maintenance of user access rights across multiple systems. You can quickly provision employees as well as business partners, and all changes and approvals are fully auditable.Role Management
Roles align with business processes rather than technical directory structures. Users are assigned roles and given certain privileges, called entitlements, which enable access to various systems.Password Management & Self- Services
The software supports self-service password reset and password synchronization across all connected target systems, as well as the ability to perform self-service updates of personal information. Usually it’s avoided to use agents which have to be installed on target systems. In most cases the connection is done with the standard API of a connected target system to process all provisioning task, e.g. for LDAP directories, ADS, Exchange. In some rare cases agents are used, e.g. for the “ADS Password Hook” because it’s the only way to go. In addition to that, customers may want to develop their own agents for sending events to IDM.Reporting & Auditing
Critical for compliance, this feature enables you to produce reports based on current access and past events. If questions come up, reports can conclusively state whether the person in question had entitlements to particular applications and associated features and functions. You can transparently maintain all changes to data, user access rights, and administrative permissions.Identity Virtualization
SAP NetWeaver Identity Management provides an integrated, unified view of the virtual identity of users, as well as identity services to let you leverage identity information and access rights across networks.Data Synchronization
If you change key information in one application, it is transformed and propagated to other related applications to maintain data consistency and quality.
