Get IAM Right in SAPcentric organizations

SAP is critical to many organizations’ operations and success, and IAM is essential for EVERY organization’s success. You would think that it’s a compatible match, right? It turns out that navigating the relationship between the two sides can be tumultuous.

The identity and access management (IAM) team is on the front lines of security but are not SAP experts and do not know the intricacies of the popular enterprise software’s modules and their use. Then there’s the SAP teams, who support and enable business operations, as well as drive the user experience, who rarely claim to be experts in IAM. They know to not overstep their bounds when it comes to enterprise initiatives tied to IAM.

Strategies to ensure success for your governance project

When IT professionals talk about identity and access management (IAM), governance now dominates the conversation.

In years past when we talked about IAM, the hot topics were provisioning, single sign-on and role-based access control. But we must have gotten bored with those stale topics and needed something new to focus on.

Value Stream Management and the Next Decade of DevOps

As DevOps enters its second decade, it’s time to re-evaluate your strategy.

Organizations can easily fall into the trap of settling for “good enough” because measuring productivity and flow across varying teams and systems is challenging. That’s where value stream management comes in.

Join HCL UrbanCode leaders, Brian Muskoff and Steve Boone, for a conversation about scaling your DevOps strategy by focusing on data and culture through value stream management. In this webinar, we’ll cover:

  • What is value stream management and how it works in a DevOps culture.
  • How to harvest opportunity from your DevOps pain points.
  • The resources you need to successfully implement a value stream management approach.

This webinar is especially beneficial for technology executives, transformation leaders and DevOps managers who are responsible for their DevOps strategic direction.

Understanding the Value Stream With Velocity

Today, most development teams use Agile planners or Kanban boards to track work. Once the code is integrated though, continuous delivery tools take over. Tracking work as it flows through all the tools of a DevOps toolchain can be a pain. UrbanCode Velocity solves that with a value stream visualization that stitches together the story across your toolchain. Join us for an overview and demo of Velocity. In this session, you'll learn:

  • How developers can track their work as it flows to production.
  • How testers can see what is in the pipeline.
  • How team or retrospective leaders can spot process bottlenecks holding their team back.

You can get IAM right

In an ideal world, we’d have the budget and time we need to get things done. And tomorrow would be predictable. But that’s simply not the case, especially in the IT universe.

As you well know, the world of identity and access management (IAM) is one of constant change, shrinking deadlines, minuscule budgets, overtaxed staff and unmerciful regulations. Unfortunately, the approach most organizations take to IAM involves piecing together ‘half solutions,’ in the hope that tomorrow’s solutions will address real-world needs.

The top five ways to relieve the pain of managing hybrid AD environments

Active Directory is everywhere and Azure Active Directory (AAD), its cloud-based cousin, is quickly gaining ground. Currently, nearly ninety percent of organizations worldwide are using Active Directory (AD) for on-premises resources (aka on-prem). That represents 500 million organizations and somewhere around 10 billion daily authentications. In fact, in the world of identity and access management (IAM), AD has become unavoidable and absolutely necessary for on-prem user authentication and authorization. You have to go through AD. It’s just how it’s done. Now, mix in the cloud – and Azure AD– and your management complexity just skyrocketed – and you could be in for a world of pain, if your on-prem or cloud identity environments are not managed and synced properly.

The 12 Essential Tasks of Active Directory Domain Services

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) administration and management includes 12 major tasks. These tasks cover a wide breadth of business needs and are not all performed solely by AD DS administrators. In fact, administrators can and should delegate several tasks to other members of their technical community, technicians, help desk personnel, even users such as team managers and administrative assistants. While delegation is a way to reduce the amount of work administrators have to do when managing AD DS infrastructures, it really only addresses one or two of the 12 tasks, for example, user and group administration as well as end point device administration. The other ten tasks can be staggering in nature — security, networked service administration, OU-Specific Management, Group Policy Object management and many more — and because of this can take up inordinate amounts of time,

Protecting the data of refugees and those who help them

To protect refugees, employees and supply transports—plus minimise costs—the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) wanted to standardise the management of Active Directory. After evaluating solution options, DRC deployed One Identity Active Roles. As a result, DRC established user templates and automated workflows for governing access for 7,000 global employees. Today, DRC can provision new users in an hour. IT staff have greater control over who can access which applications and data. And the organisation has increased staff efficiency, boosted savings and simplified regulatory compliance.
