I have more than seven years of experience working at a bank.  We bought SAP GRC that came with SAP IDM. Should we leverage SAP IDM and customize it for legacy or should we acquire a specialized legacy IDM solution? Which is the best option and which solution would you recommend? Thanks! I appreciate the help.

I have experience with SAP IDM for SAP only and not for other systems. That said, the recommendation would depend on a much more detailed analysis and also a list of which “legacy” systems they have to integrate.

I would always prefer a specialized IDM solution with OOB connectors to legacy systems and SAP instead of customization of SAP IDM. Most IDM tools are capable of doing role reviews, have SOD tables, and are capable of provisioning and de-provisioning legacy systems without customization. Without knowing what your functional requirements are with regards to IDM I would suggest Okta or Sailpoint.

SAP IDM is a powerful tool if you stay within the „SAP ecosystem“ if you have a lot more applications and target systems to connect you should definitely look into a a full comprehensive IDM solution like Omada. Gartner’s rated Omada as a top vendor for governance needs

I’m definitely not an expert in SAPG GRC but I can do some research if I have more details about the request. What are the requirements, what does he want to do?

You could consider Ubisecure for external IDM needs and Omada for internal external.
