- Germany, December 2022 -

As reported in German media title, News Research, SAP security expert, Xiting, and the consulting and IT group, All for One Group SE, work together excellently, symbolized by Xiting’s presenting of a Platinum Partner Award to All for One.

Michael Zitz, Spokesman of the Management Board and Co-CEO of All for One Group SE, accepted the award at the company's headquarters in Filderstadt.

Complex process: user and authorization management in SAP ERP

Numerous medium-sized companies in the manufacturing industry rely on SAP. Smooth processes require that user authorizations are implemented correctly. A central task in access management is to keep an eye on roles, authorizations and access.

“As a rule, an SAP role and authorization concept has to be created and implemented manually. Depending on the size of the company and its processes, this can be extremely time-consuming and costly," says Bianca Springer, Senior Manager Technology Projects at All for One Group SE, Filderstadt. "Questions quickly arise here, such as: Do role definitions and actually performed user actions match? Are the compliance guidelines already adhered to during the role design? Is a switch to SAP S/4HANA pending? Does the existing role concept have to be redesigned for this? Are there custom developments in the ABAP code that may contain security vulnerabilities?”

Two aspects in particular could cause headaches, says Peter Rosendahl, General Manager and Director Sales Cybersecurity & Compliance, All for One Group SE: "If a company wants to switch to SAP S/4HANA, it is necessary to adapt the role and authorization structure. Switching to SAP Fiori applications and optimizing the user experience is called 'Fiorization'. This requires tidy structures. This is an important milestone for companies on the way to S/4HANA.”

Hendrik Heyn, CEO Germany, Xiting GmbH, Schluchsee, adds: “Even without switching to S/4HANA, there are good reasons to clean up. The main thing is to increase security in general and to revise or create new authorization concepts. Not least when legal regulations require it. Is the role and authorization structure not tidy, not well structured or showing its age? Do external auditors complain that too many rights have been assigned that do not belong to the roles? Then you have to act.”

All for One and Xiting aim for sustainable customer benefits

"The All for One Group is the first among our approximately 70 Xiting partners to receive the Platinum Partner Award," says Hendrik Heyn from Xiting. "In particular, the many years of SAP expertise and the qualified consultants in the very well-positioned teams convince us. You proceed methodically and technologically well thought-out and efficiently according to our best-practice project methodology. This gives our joint end customers lasting advantages. This is also documented by the high level of customer satisfaction.”

Peter Rosendahl from All for One emphasizes the advantages of the close technical consultation between the experts from Xiting and All for One. “If we have special questions, we can always rely on a personal and direct professional exchange. For our customers this means: Projects run smoothly and support is provided quickly. You have real advantages and time savings in day-to-day business.”
