The SAP Fiori user interface is gaining in importance in current SAP S/4HANA projects. SAP applications become experiences, usability is enhanced, and the use of apps enables device-independent access – anytime and anywhere. Spaces and pages, the new way of visualizing apps in SAP Fiori Launchpad, deliver several key benefits. But how can you activate spaces and pages and what effects does this new approach have on authorization roles?
We are very pleased to be able to support the Swedish foundation TRR with our software solutions in the future! The company is planning to migrate their classic SAP ERP systems to SAP S/4HANA within a time frame of 6-12 months. Our SAST SUITE can be used for both the old and the new SAP landscapes.
Seize the opportunity to take your SAP S/4HANA migration to a new level with a cleanly designed, holistically planned security and compliance strategy. After all, having structured plans from the start will reduce the workload in the long term. That’s why you should ultimately see this challenge as an opportunity as well: to improve the security of your SAP systems, streamline your role concepts, and enable use of the new system with all its benefits.
Schott AG is considering its SAP S/4HANA transformation from all aspects, from code and processes, down to authorizations for its SAP S/4HANA migration.
In this interview, Thomas Frey (SAP Authorizations Consultant, SAST SOLUTIONS) explains the requirements you need to keep track of when rolling out SAP S/4HANA – and what you must avoid at all costs.
Takeda, Japan’s largest pharmaceuticals company, manages its business processes in a global, heterogeneous IT landscape. From SAP ERP to SAP Cloud applications, employees work at a variety of levels, depending on their involvement in processes, and therefore need access to a number of systems. As a result, the company has to constantly review conflicting authorizations to meet strict compliance requirements, such as segregation of duties (SoD). Most standard software solutions on the market only monitor SoD conflicts and risks in a single system, however, which led the company to search for an end-to-end solution.
Ralf Kempf, CTO SAST SOLUTIONS, and his team have already guided many enterprises through their migration to SAP S/4HANA. He talked about his recipes for success in an interview with Ulrich Parthier, publisher of it management magazine.
Excerpts from the interview are provided below.
The upgrade from SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA also involves a changeover to a new technology. This offers new possibilities thanks, to the increased speed of the SAP HANA in-memory database, as well as an improved user experience through the new FIORI UI. At the same time, however, the implementation of SAP S/4HANA also presents many enterprises with the difficult challenge of planning and executing their migration projects correctly: existing processes and role concepts have to be reconsidered.
The SAP S/4HANA software suite represents a cutting-edge cornerstone for the digitalization of enterprises and is increasingly being used by both SMEs and large corporations. However, the implementation of and migration to SAP S/4HANA also entail increasing complexity in system administration and management. Our specialized software tools enable you to master this project successfully.
When setting up an SAP S/4HANA system landscape, you have the option of establishing a front-end system as the central, superordinate system that accesses different back-end systems. To do this, you have to consider and logically design many factors in advance. In addition to the technical prerequisites, the role and authorization concepts have to be revised. But how can you adapt authorization management in an SAP S/4HANA system with little effort?
Before migrating old ERP authorizations to the new S/4HANA system, project owners must ask countless, but crucial questions. However, many companies leave security and compliance for last. This is a mistake: These aspects should be included in the migration strategy right from the get-go.
