Single Sign-on for SAP Environments
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Wednesday, November 11, 2009 TIME: 17:00-18:00 CET, 11am Eastern
Many large organizations use SAP for their critical business processes. These deployments run on different backend platforms, including UNIX and Linux. At the same time, Microsoft´s Active Directory has become the de facto standard for authentication on Windows systems and applications. For end users needing to access SAP in such organizations, this means yet another username/password combination to remember and using it every day, causing inefficiencies and increasing helpdesk workload. At the same time, each SAP system represents another identity silo wanting to be managed. Considering the sensitivity of data stored in SAP, such a silo needs strong security to not cause compliance issues, making it a particularly expensive silo.
The identity management marketplace offers a number of different solutions enabling Active Directory-based single sign-on for SAP, making life for SAP endusers much easier and at the same time offering a good potential to reduce the costs of managing your IT infrastructure. In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger (Kuppinger Cole), will talk about the different concepts of SAP-SSO and why Kerberos is a real option in such an environment. Then, Jackson Shaw and Reto Bachmann (Quest Software) will present some best practices based on Quest´s solution for SAP.
This webinar is supported by Quest.

With a huge amount of data around, cloud migration is the ideal solution today. A necessary stage in migrating data to the cloud is putting it in order. This is particularly important when it comes to unstructured, so-called dark data: files and documents that are undermanaged (excel files of budget estimates, PDFs containing important patents, Word documents containing personal employee or customer information), in general the data that is not managed in an orderly fashion such as structured database which is easily governed. Usually, this kind of data that tends to be misplaced, misused, abandoned, hacked, or leaked, in the cloud and local server repositories putting enterprises at risk.
