To sustain efficiency and cut down user administration cost while ensuring compliance with industry specific regulations are the challenging concerns in manufacturing industries. Customers, partners, suppliers, and employees around the globe require system access, efficient automated processes, and global management.
In addition, regulatory legislation such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) has a significant impact on information security, data access and segregation of duties (SOD) policies, which requires mature processes for access certifications and policy management to ensure that policies are in place and adhered to.
