Responsibly deploy mass processing tool. Easily and accurately implement your mass data upload policies and procedures.
Nervous about giving SAP mass data management tool to your users?
Why Innowera Control Panel?
Most mass processing tools comply with SAP security automatically. However, this may not be enough as SAP security assignment hardly considers power of mass processing tool and related use cases. For example, when they gave PA30 to maintain employee records, they did not presume that user will create or change hundreds of records in minutes and possibly damage the data in large scale in no time. There are many other possible negative outcomes without the proper governance and control over mass processing tool. The scenarios listed above are just some of them (and they are real).
If you are considering to provide a mass processing solution for your SAP users, there must be a proactive and centralized damage control solution to ensure that you can deploy the tool with confidence. Innowera’s Control Panel provides the necessary level of governance and control, allowing you to put your worries and concerns to rest and reap the benefit of the larger scale deployment of Process Runner.
Innowera Control Panel is part of Innowera Enterprise Apps for the Agile Enterprise
Innowera Control Panel puts powerful control in your hand so you can manage how Process Runner is being used (or not used) within your enterprise. The web-based centralized interface enables real-time control and monitoring so you can instantly define and implement mass processing usage policies across Users, Systems, Schedules and Processes – all without changing SAP security or impacting anything else. See a short video on this page to learn more.
Implement Process Runner usage restrictions without changing SAP security. While Process Runner automatically ensures that SAP user security is honored, Innowera Control Panel allows narrowing down this access without changing the user’s role in SAP. Innowera Control Panel provides an easy and dynamic way to create a subset of user’s SAP access that is centrally implemented.
Innowera Control Panel facilitates implementing critical Process Runner usage policies with ease. Shut down or stop Process Runner usage across all the systems or users with a click of a button. Another scenario is where it can provide working access to Process Runner users but prevents running processes in SAP. Such centralized control over global actions could be useful during cut overs and rehearsals where Process Runner usage is quickly and centrally controlled by IT/Admin as desired.
Users & Systems
Block access to SAP systems, users or processes as desired Innowera Control Panel. Provides for blanket as well as granular control of how Process Runner is being used. For example allow only selected users to login to a particular instance to execute only selected transactions and BAPIs.
Web interface provides a graphical view of who is using Process Runner and what they are doing. IT/Admin can even force a user to log off from Process Runner or block him/her from using Process Runner permanently. If required, all Process Runner users can be logged off from Process Runner with a single click.
Innowera Control Panel is fully integrated with Process Runner for seamless functioning. Innowera Control Panel changes are immediately reflected on all Process Runner Designer and Run Only users. No log offs or restarts are required.
Stop mass upload tool from loading invalid data to your SAP system.
Mass processing tools are great at loading data quickly, but what if you’re loading the wrong data? Are you looking to control the data being loaded beyond the standard control and configuration provided by SAP?
Ensuring data quality and integrity is imperative to any organization. Innowera’s Data Governance layer of Control Panel allows field level validation as data is being uploaded to SAP. You are able to implement business rules on each field to validate, control, or prevent what goes into your SAP system. You’re even able to use configuration tables or validate your data against live SAP data, allowing you to easily and dynamically control complex data quality validation rules on your input data.
Innowera Data Governance provides a way to:
How does this work?
Designer: This is the super user who will define the data governance business rules centrally in Data Governance layer of Innowera Control Panel and apply those rules to the field level in Process Runner:
End User: This is the end user/business who is uploading or downloading between Excel and SAP (or another Innowera supported source). This user usually focuses on Excel data and presses a button on Innowera tab in Excel to upload the data into SAP.
Use Configuration or Check Tables:
Using configuration tables to drive the data governance rule’s logic provide ultimate flexibility and simplicity. Values stored in these tables can be used in building the rule and defining the outcome. Change the outcome of the rules on the fly by simply changing values in these tables. Performance is automatically optimized. Finer controls are offered on how the data retrieval is performed from various source.
Data Governance layer support two broad sources of the data tables:
|Database Table||Live SAP Table/View|
|Maintain validation or check table in standard database table stored in Microsoft SQL (or other supported database type) and use them in your data governance rule.||Use data from live SAP table or view. You can use SAP configuration tables or any other table, you can even apply filter and get only relevant records from SAP. Use these tables and views to drive the data governance rules for ultimate real-time validation for your upload. SAP access is always based on the end user’s SAP security profile.|
