SAP Identity Management – Business Extensions Service (formerly known as IDM RDS)



This is the old blog post content (dated back to 10. November 2016), which is really outdated! :

Many customers waited for this: SAP released the Rapid Deployment Solution version 2.80 for the product SAP Identity Management 8.0+ (RDS-IDM). It provides predefined content to enable you to start with the implementation of SAP Identity Management in a very short timeframe.

Just like the previous RDS for SAP Identity Management 7.2, this solution contains a step-by-step guide and the accelerators you need for a successful initial implementation of SAP Identity Management. The documentation package (step-by-step guide) contains details on typical features, additional technical information and implementation procedures. This solution reduces total cost of ownership by simplifying assignment of roles and privileges to users, triggered by human capital management events.

What’s new with RDS 2.80 for SAP Identity Management 8.0:

  • support of SAP Success Factors as source for employee master data

  • support of SAP HANA as a target system

  • support of all databases supported by SAP IdM 8.0: Oracle, MS-SQL, IBM-DB2, and SAP ASE

  • great focus on supporting the existing and former functionalities, such as mass administration, predefined approval workflows, improved forms (formerly known as WebUI tasks) and support of system specific user attributes
