Today, enterprises can use DUR for lifecycle management to get new users onto their system and provisioned into their backend without touching SAP.

Challenge: Provide real-time solutions that offer the best traceability

Managing the user lifecycle is increasingly complex for enterprises that are navigating digital transformation initiatives and exist in hybrid on-prem and cloud-based SAP environments. Fortunately, a future-oriented and secure, hybrid SAP operation that is sustainable and economical can bring added value for enterprises across a variety of industries.

That’s nexQuent’s goal in bringing its Dynamic Security Suite to market, helping enterprises to address access control, user lifecycle identity management, and more. With DSS, SAP and additional non-SAP enterprise systems alike can be integrated into a uniform user lifecycle management solution.

The company, which is based in Germany and New Zealand, provides SAP-based support, managed services and technology consulting for customers across Germany, New Zealand, Norway, Austria and Switzerland.

nexQuent’s experts in cloud integrations, automation, security and user lifecycle management know that reducing complexity and providing a resilient secure operational environment is mission critical for IT departments today. Centralizing user access and identity management can make it easier to support modernization and mobility going forward.

In 2012, nexQuent sought a way to move its first iteration of these user access control and authorization solutions – which were built on ABAP and an object-oriented model – to a more modern and less expensive foundation. A survey of potential SAP development platform partners led them to Neptune Software.

Solution: As Neptune Software’s first partner, nexQuent delivers a complete digital lifecycle management product

At the time, Neptune Software was just getting started, and nexQuent became its very first enterprise partner.

“We were convinced of the technical possibilities with the Neptune Software approach back in 2012, and today, that is even more true,” says Frank Hasemann, general manager and founder at nexQuent GmbH.

The company moved forward to build its Dynamic Security Suite on the Neptune Software platform, including its Dynamic User Request (DUR), Dynamic Password Reset (DPR), and DSR mobile reporting tool (DSR-sMaRT). Combined the app suite includes approximately 25 apps to create a complete digital lifecycle management product.

Among the many tasks it sought to simplify and automate, nexQuent built DUR to help IT teams bring new users onboard, change existing accounts, manage authorizations, delete and add rules, deactivate and reactivate users, make changes to master data, manage recertification of users and roles, and run reports.

Results: A simplified user access control and authorization solution that can be up and running in days

With unified lifecycle management using DSS, enterprises have a simplified way to manage user access and authorizations. Today, enterprises can use DUR for lifecycle management to get new users onto their system and provisioned into the back end without touching SAP.

“Unified lifecycle management impacts every user and every account in the company and can ultimately make other enterprise solutions such as HCM, SD, or MM, run smoother.” Says Frank. “And since our Dynamic Security Suite built on Neptune DXP is designed as an out-of-the-box solution with an easy user interface, it can be ready to operate in just days. In other environments, standing up a lifecycle management solution can take years.”

With DSS, enterprises don’t have to use another technology, since their workflow is all in one place. That means no emails, access sheets, forms, phone calls, or solution manager tickets, which makes the process more efficient and convenient. And since non-SAP connections can also be handled from outside the SAP standard system, no other services, software, or servers are needed.

“It’s easy and possible to use no-code functionalities to make DUR work the way the customer wants and needs,” says Frank. “Plus it’s all quite modular, so we can start small, and use diverse connectors and easy-to-plug-in exit modules to make the whole DSS strongly automated.”

Enterprises can also use the DSS admin app to customize processes, system behavior, and the UI, all on a no-code basis.

“Our customers that have switched from the SAP IdM license find our solution to be much faster, with a better user interface look, feel, and behavior. They like that it’s a true digitalization approach and supports their need for future-proof solution,” added Frank.

Moving forward, nexQuent has plans to augment the DSS with additional apps and functionality. Plus the organization will focus on a cloud approach, especially as it is related to SAP on Azure.

“We’re 100% convinced that using Neptune Software is a huge door opener for us,” says Frank.

“Since our Dynamic Security Suite built on Neptune DXP is designed as an out-of-the-box solution with an easy user interface, it can be ready to operate in just days. In other environments, standing up a lifecycle management solution can take years.”
