Understanding SAP authorizations for HR


Data related to personnel administration transactions is highly sensitive as it enables access to confidential information about any employee within an organization. The potential for risk extends over accessing general information such as family status, to obtaining specific information like bank details and salary.
Due to the complexity of SAP© HCM Authorization, organizations lack the ability to determine which authorizations are used, unused, underused, or duplicated. If your organization is ready to take data management to the next level, ProfileTailor HCM Auditor is the solution that will ensure ongoing monitoring of HCM activity usage, while pinpointing the exact user performing a single action and even the exact object itself.
