SAP Business Objects Access Control - Interface for Identity Management (GRC-AC-IDM)

SAP Business Objects Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) application enables the customers to define policies or rules, and enforce these policies through provisioning services. SAP Access Control provides web services to enable the Identity Management (IdM) vendors to integrate for compliance provisioning. With the GRC-AC-IDM interface, the integration of SAP Access Control and IdM provides real time access management as a standard provisioning process across heterogeneous IT systems.

SAP BusinessObjects GRC 10 is a major release that Access Control is harmonized with Rick Management and Process Control in one common SAP NetWeaver ABAP platform. GRC AC 10 also improves the Identity Management (IdM) integration in the compliant provisioning for customers already using IdM.
