SWUD Workflow Diagnosis
Basically, an excellent IT knowledge is required. In addition, SAP administrators must of course be particularly competent in this area and be able to deal confidently with all issues relating to SAP solutions. Since they often also work in international companies, it is an advantage if they have a very good command of written and spoken English.
Before the project starts, it must be clear which systems are to be connected to the IdM and which services the system is to provide. This requires close collaboration between the department and IT, as later adaptations or additional systems will extend the implementation and exceed the budget. Analysing existing data To successfully implement an Identity Management System, high quality data is essential. Users' root data must be verified, updated, or maintained. Automation with incomplete or even incorrect data is otherwise not conceivable. Rethinking the Permission Concept With the introduction of an Identity Management System and a workflow for permission granting, the existing roles should be scrutinised once again. You should ask yourself whether the user knows what role he chooses from the current catalogue and whether it is sufficient for his task. Set Role-Owner Not only the user needs to know which role to choose. There must also be a person in charge of the role who adapts or adapts the role as required or acts as a point of contact when required.
Planning and execution of transports
The tasks described above, which occur at rather irregular intervals and involve a certain degree of complexity due to the lack of routine or process know-how, should be examined in order to determine whether they can be performed more efficiently by an external service provider. One question to be answered is whether it is necessary to keep the necessary knowledge in the company in order to be able to react faster than the external service provider. For example, for business critical systems. Security aspects should also be considered, as external persons gain access to the system. From now on, outtasking performance must be regularly monitored and checked for quality and documentation. A complete dependence on the external partner must not arise.
The integration of the SAP basis enables solutions to be introduced faster and better integrated into the existing system landscape. This is partly because the solutions are already known in advance and the necessary knowledge exists or is already planned. This will make it easier to implement the roadmap. It should also be noted that a clear strategy on digitisation and also on cloud products in general, as well as their possible uses, sets out a framework for action that all parties can follow. The participants thus know where the company wants to develop or orientate itself, what is possible and what is not possible or permitted. Thus, both companies and the parties have a valid point of reference at all times. This also leads to an increased acceptance within the SAP basis and a more practical implementation for the SAP basis, as the mentioned expertise is already present in the strategy. As a result, this makes it easier and cheaper to ensure operation in a manageable system landscape.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
If a role for one or more catalogues in the launchpad has been authorised, the corresponding catalogues and groups will be displayed in the app finder only for eligible users when the launchpad is launched.
