Automatic user provisioning is valuable but could use better cloud integration connectors

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is basically focused on SAP landscape, the complete SAP User Lifecycle. We're currently using SailPoint and SAP Identity Management. As part of a dissertation I'm working on to evaluate whether it's possible to have the complete User Lifecycle in our company with one tool, or whether it makes sense to have one IDM system only for SAP work and another one for everything else.

Pros and Cons

  • "It provides basic automatic user administration and role provisioning to save time."
  • "A lack of startup connectors to different systems, and could have better connectors for SAP IDM."

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest carrying out some requirement engineering before choosing any system. If you're really SAP-dominated, it makes sense to go to SAP IDM, because it's more or less a niche product. But if you have a really hetero system landscape, it makes sense to evaluate other systems because I think the effort for having connectors developed or customized for non-SAP systems can be huge. You can save time and money if you really choose a vendor or application which has mostly standard connectors. If you use SAP around 70%-80% of the time in your company, it makes sense to have SAP IDM…

Easy integration with other applications makes this our enterprise-wide SSO solution

What is our primary use case?

We are a big SAP shop, so SAP IDM is the main identity provider for accessing all of the applications. This is not just for SSO but also for the provisioning and related tasks.

Pros and Cons

  • "Rather than implement a basic SSO, this solution assisted us with setting up two-factor authentication."
  • "It needs to have the SSO for the HANA modules that SAP is releasing."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for others implementing this solution is to identify all of the systems that you need to connect to using SSO. Make sure that you have a unique identifier for each user, whether it be an employee ID or a username. Just make sure that it is available for IDM to provision it and do the sample authentications. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
