Managing user identities is critical for safeguarding an organization’s overall security and operations in today's ever-evolving digital landscape. To help, Oracle has released the Oracle Identity Manager Connector for SAP Ariba, a solution empowering businesses with streamlined identity lifecycle management in SAP Ariba, helping reduce the risk of security breaches, and optimizing operational performance.

Oracle Identity Manager Connector for SAP Ariba

The Oracle Identity Governance license includes Oracle Identity Manager. Oracle Identity Governance offers rich access entitlement controls, analytics, reporting, and other processes to help ensure that appropriate access is granted. Oracle Identity Manager and its connectors to third-party applications also enable Oracle Identity Governance to provide complete user identity lifecycle management across enterprise workflows.

The Oracle Identity Manager Connector for SAP Ariba enables Oracle Identity Governance to provide the following benefits:

  • Heightened security posture: By standardizing access controls across SAP Ariba and ancillary systems, organizations can streamline the management of user identities and enforce access policies that only allow authorized personnel to access sensitive data. This centralization of identity management processes with Oracle Identity Governance helps fortify an organization’s security posture and provide better protection against threats. It also helps companies address regulatory mandates which often require strict access controls for sensitive data. By adopting this approach, companies can better safeguard their data and help prevent unauthorized access to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical information.
  • Operational efficiency: Automated user account management helps enhance efficiency by reducing manual intervention.
  • Precision access controls: Organizations can manage access controls through Oracle Identity Governance’s role-based access control (RBAC) capabilities. With these capabilities, organizations can create tailored access policies that align with a workforce user’s roles and responsibilities. By limiting user access to only the resources and privileges necessary for their job functions, it further minimizes the risk of unauthorized access or data breaches. Oracle Identity Governance can help organizations achieve and manage  strict security and compliance requirements by implementing precisely defined access policies.
  • Real-time data synchronization: The connector enables real-time synchronization of user data between SAP Ariba and Oracle Identity Governance. Changes made to user attributes or access rights are quickly reflected in both systems maintaining data integrity.
  • Scalability and adaptability: Designed to grow with your organization, the Oracle Identity Manager Connector for SAP Ariba offers flexibility and extensibility, enabling seamless integration of more systems and adapts to evolving operational requirements.


Oracle empowers enterprises with transformative solutions that foster resilience and agility. Enhance your organization's identity and access management capabilities with the Oracle Identity Manager Connector for SAP Ariba.
