Wienerberger’s rapid implementation of Saviynt’s IGA solution left similar projects in the dust while meeting — and in many cases exceeded– all of Wienerberger’s critical objectives. The first goal was to implement full identity lifecycle management and data reconciliation across SAP target systems as well as their finance systems. This solution provided visibility into cross-application SoD violations. The second crucial objective was providing key line-of-business and geography stakeholders a centralised dashboard to review and address SoD violations. The final goal was enabling control owners the ability to manage and approve SoD violations and access, then providing analytics on actual SoD violation activity versus potential violations for audit purposes.

Saviynt’s holistic approach to access and risk provided cross-application SoD visibility, enabling Wienerberger to consolidate three legacy systems down to a single, cloud-first identity and access governance platform.

Organisational compliance was Wienerberger’s impetus for implementing an Identity Governance program. Minimising Segregation of Duties (SoD) violations required a solution that would support current and future business growth. The ability to connect to on-premises applications while integrating with cloud applications was mandatory. Saviynt provided a cloud-first way to manage existing SoD’s while reducing future SoD violations.

Eight months after their go-live date, Wienerberger’s implementation was fully functional in fifteen European countries. Another fourteen countries, including the U.S., Canada, and India are being onboarded. They were able to reduce manual processes around SoD management and user provisioning, allowing them to accelerate access provisioning requests. Creating a single business-focused role request versus a bunch of ad-hoc SAP roles created greater visibility, reduced complexity, and improved request efficiency. SoD analysis across multiple applications and countries now includes a complete view on the “health of mitigating controls”, and takes minutes instead of days to generate. Dormant and orphan accounts are now identified in hours  versus the weeks they required in the antiquated systems.
