Efficient company processes require a smooth interaction of different software systems. If employee data is maintained in SAP SuccessFactors you will want to make it available in other IT systems, e.g. in your Identity Management System. Changes of employee data needs to be passed to your Identity Management solution, to ensure, that new, changed or deleted information is updated not only in SAP SuccessFactors but also in your Identity Management solution. Up to date information in your Identity Management System is key to a lot of other processes like access management (including physical access to buildings and rooms) or rights distribution (like an access or removal of access to a shared folder). The connection between SAP SuccessFactors and your Identity Management System helps you to ensure that everyone only has the permissions required to perform his work and aligned with his role/position in the organization. Your HR solution thus becomes the basis for an integrated HR – IT platform to synchronize many processes beyond core HR topics.
