Amazon AWS

AWS Identity & Access Management is well suited to managing AWS application access between services. Very helpful for both third-party products and in-house developed software. Very happy with how easy it is to create access keys and then share them in our environment. AWS IAM can also be used to manage individual users, but I highly recommend using AWS SSO for that purpose instead. Much easier to deploy for console access and from a security side easier to turn off in one click from your SSO provider.

SAP

SAP Identity Management manages organization identities centrally with a great amount of flexibility and efficiency. Compared to the conventional SAP solution of central user administration (CUA), SAP IDM (version 7.2/8.0) delivers a great number of benefits like: 1. Availability of connectors for non-SAP application identity management,
2. Modular/granular access management in the form of context-based business role definition.
3. It can be integrated with the SAP HR system for making entire user identity management automatic.

SAP

  • In my previous organization, to achieve the granularity of access based on organization restrictions, we implemented enabler role-based security roles. Provisioning the enabler roles through the SAP GRC was a great challenge (realistically improbable). Here came the SAP IDM to our rescue. It has a peculiar feature of context-based business role provisioning feature.
  • Customized context & its association with security roles & user HR attributes, give us unique ability to achieve granularity of access provisioning.
  • SAP IDM integrates with the SAP HR system and identity management becomes automatic.

Cons

Amazon AWS

  • Better integration with roles and policies so you don't need three windows open to create a new IAM user
  • Display recommended configurations based on services being used
  • Easier options to base config on existing users

SAP

  • SAP Identity management should come up with connectors for almost all not SAP applications, which will enable the use of SAP IDM as a one-stop solution for organizations' identity management.

      We would be unable to manage the interconnected nature of our AWS services without AWS IAM.

      As IDM heavily relies on JAVA/SQL as a development language, finding skills resources sometimes becomes challenging. But SAP has strong support available for this product which makes it reliable for long term use within an organization.

      Alternatives Considered

      Amazon AWS

      While we do not use Microsoft Azure for our servers and other customer-facing services. If we did, we would have to use Microsoft Azure Active Directory to manage access to services appropriately. It's difficult to quantify the differences between the services as they are truly different. I would recommend choosing AWS or Azure, then using the identity management provided by the same vendor.

      SAP IDM offers a great deal of benefits/features compared to conventional access provisioning with SAP.
      1. Conventional SAP user administration solution like CUA has great limitations. e.g. only SAP systems can be managed. Low-performance issues, unreliable access provisioning, and risk analysis were missing.
      2. SAP IDM integrates with SAP GRC solution to perform the reliable risk analysis before access provisioning. Its context feature allows granular access provisioning.

      Return on Investment

      Amazon AWS

      • Without IAM, it would be difficult to use AWS across services. Increased ROI

      SAP

      • SAP IDM has the huge potential to minimize risks arising out of disorganized identity management within an organization. As all identities are managed centrally, there is very little room for manipulation of an identity.
      • As this solution has the ability to integrate with SAP GRC, risk analysis becomes mandatory before any access provisioning takes place.
      • As the solution is automatic, hiring to employee exits is managed with a minimal margin of error.
