S/4HANA Migration: Automated Role Re-design Solution Brief
SAP’s role-based access model makes designing and maintaining user roles critical to application security and compliance. With the inevitable migration to S/4HANA on the horizon, a role assessment and re-design project will enable businesses to identify and mitigate major security and compliance risks. But the complexity and volume of SAP user roles make role re-design projects long and often unsuccessful.
Manually collecting transaction data, building new roles, and testing them for errors, even for a single department, can take several months. With automation, the time and costs incurred to collect data, design roles, and test them are significantly reduced. By eliminating complex and tedious work, errors are also dramatically reduced, making the quality and longevity of roles greater and the cost to maintain them lower.
