  • 1. S U C C E S S S T O R Y Leading Manufacturer Automates User Provisioning and Speeds Application Access Executive Summary INDUSTRY DESCRIPTION This leading packaging manufacturer operates globally across North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, producing materials and systems for packaging for the commercial and food sectors. BUSINESS SITUATION The company wanted to provide its internal users with fast, secure access to the applications they needed. Manual processes were causing delays and errors, potentially impacting employee productivity. THE NETIQ DIFFERENCE With NetIQ® Access Manager™ and NetIQ Identity Manager, the company is automating user provisioning and streamlining web application access. A role-based management framework ensures that users only access the applications they need. NETIQ PRODUCTS AND SERVICES NetIQ® Access Manager™ NetIQ Identity Manager This leading global manufacturer produces materials and systems for packaging in both the commercial and food sectors. The company’s annual sales revenues are in the billions of dollars, and its employees work in almost every global time zone. These employees need the ability to log in to business-critical systems, including email, databases and a central SAP instance, around the clock. With many thousands of users to manage, the IT team faced a significant challenge ensuring employees had timely access to the applications and data they needed, especially when it came to the SAP platform. “There are multiple application environments within our global SAP instance, and managing user access across the entire system was difficult,” said a company spokesperson. “We relied on manual processes to create user IDs and grant access rights, which caused delays and introduced a degree of risk. For example, with SAP, it was not always clear to which environment a user had requested access, which led to us creating accounts for all of the application environments, when a user might have only needed access to one or two.” If users could not gain fast, consistent access to these applications, it could impact their ability to perform their jobs and seriously impact production schedules—an unacceptable risk. To improve responsiveness and security, the manufacturer wanted greater speed and consistency in its management of users and access rights. The NetIQ Solution The company decided to deploy NetIQ® Identity Manager and NetIQ Access Manager™ to synchronize user information and access rights across its business systems. It engaged NetIQ Global Platinum partner Wipro to provide end-to-end design, implementation and project management services, as well as maintenance and support. “The NetIQ solutions offered fast implementation capability, quick return on investment and ease of integration, which were key selling points for us,”said a spokesperson.
