About the webinar

This 1-hour webinar, presented by Soterion CEO, Dudley Cartwright, will impart valuable insight into assigning SAP user access via an Identity Access Management solution (IAM) versus the Access Control (GRC) solution. We will discuss the pros and cons of both provisioning methodologies, as well as when to consider a hybrid approach.

  • Date: Tuesday, October 19, 2021
  • Time: 2:00PM – 3:00PM AEST
  • Register Here (Webinar open to SAUG Members only)

Identity Access Management solutions can bring about great efficiencies in the user access provisioning process but are less well equipped to identify access risk. On the other hand, access control solutions are well equipped to identify access risk but are less powerful at user provisioning.

We will discuss some scenarios where the benefits of provisioning SAP access using an IAM solution outweigh that of GRC solution, as well as other scenarios where provisioning access using the Business Role concept (of the access control / GRC) solution are more beneficial than that of the IAM solution.

Key takeaways

  • Pros and cons of user provisioning of the different methodologies
  • Understanding your organisation’s business objectives to help you decide on the most appropriate provisioning strategy

This webinar is open to SAUG members only, be sure to log into the website to register. If you are interested in joining SAUG, head to their Membership Page.
