1.0 Understanding the SAP User Management Driver

The Identity Manager Driver for SAP User Management, subsequently referred to as the SAP User driver, creates an automated link between the Identity Vault and SAP User Management systems (BASIS or Web Application Server.) This technology enables data flow within a business enterprise based on its own unique requirements, and eliminates the labor-intensive and error-prone practice of re-entering the same data into multiple databases. As User object records are added, modified, deactivated (disabled), or deleted in SAP or the Identity Vault, network tasks associated with these events can be processed automatically.

The driver allows administrators to propagate User data between SAP systems and other business applications and databases without the need for custom integration solutions. Administrators can decide what data will be shared and how data will be presented within their enterprises.
