As your IT infrastructure grows, identity management becomes a greater and greater challenge to you and your users. With each system you add, your users must remember another user ID and password. You must ensure that your users have the access rights they require on each system. Each system multiplies your administrative overhead. You must also ensure you remain in compliance with legal requirements, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. SAP offers the following options for dealing with these problems:
SAP NetWeaver Identity Management Identity Center enables you to manage identities across SAP systems as well as non SAP systems. It also provides workflows and event-triggered activities to ensure each user has the access required for each system.
Without the Identity Center, you can still integrate user management between SAP systems or SAP systems and an LDAP.
