AccessFlow – Bringing Visibility to all Accesses on a Unified Platform
In a complex ERP environment, keeping a track of internal access and permissions is one of the major challenges faced by modern organizations. With constant onboarding and offboarding processes of resources, promotions and high turnover rates happening daily, it becomes quite hard to keep a tab on access management. It is therefore of utmost importance to ensure that the right people in an organization have the right access to the ERP environment for the appropriate amount of time.
Automating this end-to-end ERP access authorization process using a compliant Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution not only avoids time-consuming and resource-intensive activities but also simplifies the entire process by reducing manual intervention and human errors.
