SAP Dynamic Authorisation Management


Winterhawk recently asked SAP’s Dr. Neil Patrick, Director, GRC & Security CoE, Digital Core & Industry Solutions for EMEA South, for his views on Dynamic Authorisation Management by NextLabs (SAP DAM). We posed the question:

Making sure the right people get the right data when they need it is vital to any organisation – how is DAM solving that problem Neil?

Neil’s reply:

Role-based access governance is being replaced by Attribute-based access governance. For a mature platform to reduce role management complexities, and radical reduction of the number of roles or SAP and non-SAP solutions, SAP Dynamic Authorisation Management by NextLabs is the ideal choice.
