SAP Identity Management (IDM) Migration

Migrate your SAP IDM correctly - in five simple steps. Based on our extensive experience in the IDM environment, we give you valuable advice on how to proceed successfully before, during and after the migration.

SAP Identity Management Maintenance Ends in 2027

Maintenance support for SAP Identity Management (SAP IdM) will end in 2027, with extended support available until 2030. As a result, maintenance and operational costs for SAP IdM will rise, and there will be potential security risks due to the lack of updates and patches. Numerous successor products for identity management are available in the market, necessitating a market analysis and tool selection. Migration to a successor solution is imperative.

What should SAP IDM customers expect?

Ensuring uninterrupted operation is crucial. Choosing the right successor tool, such as OneIdentity Identity Manager or Microsoft Entra ID, is pivotal. Project planning and investment decisions must be made promptly, without unnecessary delays. The migration should be completed before the end of 2027.

What considerations have you made regarding the replacement of SAP IDM? What timetable have you set for this transition? Which successor product (tool) are you intending to use?

The five steps.

1.

Requirements Analysis & System Evaluation

Initially, it is crucial to obtain a thorough understanding of the current SAP IDM implementation. This involves identifying and documenting the existing identity management processes, including workflows and integrations.

Market Analysis & Tool Selection

The subsequent stage involves assessing potential identity management solutions. This includes evaluating available systems based on their scalability, adaptability, and integration capabilities.

2.

Migration Planning

A comprehensive migration plan is essential for success. This plan should outline a clear timeline, data migration strategies, and contingency plans for rollback. Responsibilities need to be clearly defined and assigned to the relevant teams to ensure a seamless implementation.

3.

Migration Implementation

The practical execution of the migration plan involves installing and configuring the new system infrastructure, migrating processes and integrations, and conducting phased data migration. Comprehensive testing is necessary after each migration phase to verify functionality and security.

4.

Training & Go-Live

Training for IT staff, users, and support personnel is crucial for ensuring a seamless transition. The go-live of the new system should occur in a controlled environment, followed by phased introduction and thorough monitoring to promptly address any issues. Ensure a smooth transition to the new system with minimal operational disruption.
