SAP® Authorization Concepts

Consulting support in the area of "SAP® Authorization Concepts"

With new SAP® Authorization concepts we design a simple authorization assignment for you.

Because of the large number of SAP® authorization roles and users, the assignment of the SAP®-users is becoming more and more difficult. In addition, the content of the SAP®-roles has changed over time, and it is no longer always clear which is the right role for a particular user.

Furthermore, increasingly stringent guidelines (internal and external) make it necessary to assign possible authorizations taking account of the following factors:

  • Critical SAP®-authorizations
  • Segregation-of-duty conflicts
  • Traceable, system-supported assignment of authorizations

The creation of new SAP® authorization concepts and the adaptation of existing ones to new requirements is, because of the variety of transactions and authorization objects, extremely complex and time-consuming .

We have many years of experience in the creation and checking of SAP® authorization roles. You can also benefit from our experts' knowledge in the SAP® security environment.

  • Management of SAP® authorization projects, including in an international environment
