What is Identity Management?
Who benefits from identity management?
Ensure good identity data
Identity Management has always been a central part of our SavvySuite DNA. Only if I reliably know the identities in my company can I offer an intelligent service catalog that takes into account the context of the employees.
Often it is difficult for IT in the company to be really up to date regarding the quality and quantity of identities. Sustainable processes around the maintenance of identities, especially from an IT perspective, are therefore essential and not only increase security.
The situation of having more identities with access to services in one company, which are actually still working is more than a serious concern.
Employees and organizational data are the linchpin when it comes to managing processes and sets of rules in companies. Generally speaking, employees in the context of rules and regulations and the organization are the basis for successful governance.
Most of this data originates in HR (HCM/HR) or commercial systems (ERP), which map the contractual views from a company perspective.
For your IT, data around the employee plays an important role.
Den Mitarbeiter in der IT bekannt machen, seinen „Lifecycle“ für die IT abzubilden und aus den Veränderungen am Mitarbeiter die richtigen Schlüsse für die IT zu ziehen, ist daher die zentrale Aufgabe eines Identity Management Systems.
Usecase: Onboarding of an employee (German only)
The internal employee, be it a trainee, a part-time employee, the new managing director or the father on parental leave. Each of these employees takes on a task, changes over the course of their time with the company, and develops. In addition to the employees themselves, the company also undergoes organizational change. It grows, shrinks, merges divisions or spins them off. All of this has an impact on the company’s IT.
The external employee, whether from a service provider, customer or external supplier, works in the company, uses resources, performs tasks and is often only inadequately mapped within the IT processes. External employees in particular pose special challenges in terms of governance and security, as the periods of employment and fluctuations are often longer, but IT is less likely to be aware of these changes.
