Since highly sensitive data is stored in your SAP Human Capital Management System, it is important to grant access to authorized staff only.
To implement effective controls SAP provides a powerful authorization concept which allows you to combine individual authorizations and assign them to employees. This can be done manually or automatically on the basis of individually defined rules.
With SAP Authorization Concept you can both authorize your employees to call up specific programs and determine which data they can view (For example, national HR staff should be able to call up only employee data from the relevant country.)
Different kinds of access can be specified (read-only, change, erase, dual control change, etc.) and assigned separately.
Using the structural authorizations, you can also determine which organizational units within your Organizational Structure (based on positions) an employee has access to. In case of staffing changes, employees automatically receive the correct authorizations for their new positions.
