Johnsonville Sausage needed to give 1,300 employees and 500 external brokers secure access to a variety of applications, but managing 1,800 user identities took much of the IT staff’s time. Johnsonville Sausage implemented NetIQ Identity Manager to reduce administration time and cost by 80 percent and NetIQ Access Manager to provide easy and secure logins for employees and external brokers.
With Identity Manager, the company now has a central user directory. Identity Manager automatically synchronizes the identities of Johnsonville Sausage’s 1,800 users across each of its systems.
Using the Identity Manager driver for SAP, the IT team has connected all its SAP applications, including human resources, financials, warehouse management, materials management and supply chain.
