What are the requirements and benefits of a modern identity management system (IDM) in the GRContext and what should be taken into account in application processes? Modern companies need to be able to effectively control their employees' access and system permissions to ensure optimal corporate control and monitoring. This need can also be inferred from legal requirements. IDM is the user and permission management within an organisation. These systems are an essential part of the internal control system. This includes the continuous monitoring and allocation of access possibilities as well as the systematic securing of functional separation (SoD - Segregation of Duties) in the IT systems. This is primarily intended to better manage relevant business and financial risks and to prevent criminal acts. The management of user and permission structures must ensure that, when the roles and responsibilities change, the privileges of the employees concerned in the systems are adjusted. Failure to do so will result in a multi-department employee having extensive privileges that can be critical in combination. Trust is good, control is better In order to avoid employees being entitled beyond your area of competence, user data and permissions must be continuously adjusted to the current requirements. It therefore makes sense to regularly carry out a recertification process in which the role owner and the manager sign off in compliance with the four-eye principle that the employee is entitled to the current privileges or may have to be deprived of rights from previous activities. Provisioning as a central function of the IDM Provisioning components form a central function of IDM systems, which provide users with individual access rights for the required IT resources according to their task.

The presentation layer is used to visualize the applications and data for the user. The presentation is done with the help of a graphical user interface (GUI). Furthermore, the presentation view consists of several modules, which are also summarized as SAP GUI. SAP Fiori is the presentation layer of the next generation and is therefore particularly user-friendly.
SAP's client concept enables a SAP system to be split into several logical sub-systems - clients. These subsystems can be used independently and in isolation as separate systems. But how should non-client transactions be treated? How can you prevent one client from accessing the other and why should you want to prevent that? In this blog post, I will answer these questions and discuss some negative examples. Why is it important to consider independent transactions separately? Imagine that every one of your employees is allowed to create or change a client in the production system, or worse, both. Creating and modifying a client in the production system is authorised and documented - you wonder what could possibly go wrong? The risk in this case is a loss of integrity of system and data, loss of confidentiality: With each new client, Superuser SAP* lives up to its comprehensive, cross-client rights and the assigned standard password.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes many tasks in the area of the SAP basis much easier.
Application layer: The application layer is the core of an R/3 SAP Basis system.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
On the other hand, the test quality should of course be high.
