Ciber Authorization Process Manager

Support the complete authorization lifecycle The Authorization Process Manager (APM) is an add-on SAPÂŽ solution that supports the authorization role life cycle and helps solve the traditional challenges that come along with it. With the Authorization Process Manager, organizations can ensure that projects are no longer blocked by authorization errors, build roles to support the implemented business processes, gain complete control of the authorization development process and realize time and cost savings that can deliver a rapid ROI of 9-12 months).

Projects no longer blocked by authorization errors Authorization errors that block test cases for hours every time they occur waste precious time, generate risks, and build frustrations in projects. With the Authorization Process Manager, the authorization specialists and the authorization testers can work independently and report changes and errors in a new, simple and intuitive way. With the test container functionality, the user can report authorization errors and still continue his work because the missing authorization is added to the user’s test container. Afterwards, the authorization specialist can evaluate

if any missing authorization is needed in a role. Consequently, the user does not have to wait for the authorization specialist to update the role. In addition, the authorization team can now simply wait until the entire testing of roles is completed and execute all required role updates in just one complete process flow, thereby saving a tremendous amount of time.

Ciber Authorization Process Manager

Build your roles to support the implemented business processes By using the test container, it is easy to involve business users to define roles without knowledge of authorization objects, field values or even specific business related values at the design stage. Authorization Process Manager documents the exact values missing in the role, making role development easier and quicker, as well as transparent and accurate. Furthermore, the authorization team is not delayed by limited access to business information or technical information.

Complete control of the authorization development process

A proven successful investment Implementing Authorization Process Manager typically shows an ROI in 1 year or less. In authorization projects, the ROI can be as low as 2-3 months by significantly reducing the resources required and achieving much higher quality results. Below is an example of a real customer with 1,200 productive users who used APM for an ERP implementation project. They cut nearly 50 % of the workload within authorizations. For that particular customer, APM provided savings of $50,000 for just one project and an ROI of less than 6 months.

With the Authorization Process Manager, you can obtain full control of authorization development. Based on system trace reporting, you can have visibility of the exact status of the test at any given time placing you in complete control of the situation from day one to go-live. • • • •
