Eliminate errors from repetitive and tedious tasks

Role Deriver offers a remarkable ROI for any company having to create or maintain derived roles as part of their SAP access management practices.


What is a Derived Role?

A Derived Role (or Child Role) is a type of role maintained within SAP ECC and R/3 environments. They inherit the menu structure and transactions from another role called a Master Role -- also known as a Parent Role. 

Changes related to menu structures and transactions autmatically cascade from the Master Role to the Derived role. This helps to lower the burden of managing roles common across the enterprise and increases the level of role standardization. Higher standardization makes the management of roles less complex. 

However, while a Master Role passes on its authorizations, menu structure, and transactions to the derived role, organizational values are not conveyed.

Why Automate The Creation of Derived Roles

Why Automate The Creation of Derived Roles

If you have a large and complex organization with many org level values, you will need to create each derived role individually. Even if the data you put into each of them is largely the same or with some simple variations.

This can take hours and hours of staff time and is error prone.

With Role Deriver, these manual creation steps are automated allowing you to automatically generate many derived roles from one or more master roles. By basing the derivations on pre-defined sets of organizational values, that you need to enter into the tool only once, errors are reduced, time is saved, and any role design or role implementation project is accelerated.
