Access Control, ABAP or/and Netweaver
My question is do we have exactly the same possibilities in AC ABAP and Netweaver version (except for FF).
If yes, is there any advantage to use the ABAP version.
Actually , if we talk about AC then basically there exists :
Compliance Calibrator ( Now RAR) , Role Expert ( now ERM ) , Firefighter ( Now SPM ) , Access Enforcer ( now CUP) .
Apart from last one rest 3 products have ABAP version.
Access Enforcer never had ABAP version therefore only option is using 5.X series.
For others , I agree there are certain functionalities and reports which exist in 4.0 and not in 5.2 and vice versa However , in version AC 5.3 , GRC has removed majority of the major gaps between both these versions and now AC 5.3 and 4.0 versions are more closer in functionality with each other . Additionally , new innovations and developments which were critical from security prospective have been incorporated in 5.3.
Hope this answers your question.
