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.

In addition to purely administrative tasks, SAP administrators are also responsible for communication. They cooperate with the company's internal support departments and work with them on ways to help users solve and avoid any problems and pitfalls when using SAP solutions. For internal purposes, the SAP administrator also prepares documentation and uses it to search for errors, the cause of which he or she tries to combat. If necessary, he or she communicates with decision-makers in the company in order to be able to implement improvements, adjustments and optimizations with regard to the SAP software.
EDI enables companies to exchange business data such as purchase orders or invoices electronically. This data exchange is known as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). What steps are needed to exchange data between two systems? In this post, I'd like to show you how to configure your SAP system so that an order, after it has been released, is sent electronically to your supplier. Data exchange between two systems requires a valid RFC connection to the receiver system and a transactional RFC IDoc port.
