PROVO, Utah Oct. 7, 2003 — Building on its continuing commitment to deliver secure identity management solutions for SAP customers, Novell today announced the availability of a DirXML driver that will streamline user administration across SAP applications and with other enterprise systems. The driver for DirXML, the identity management component of Novell Nsure secure identity management solutions, automates the processes of managing users and their access to ease administration and increase employee productivity.

Using DirXML with its wide range of drivers to manage users within SAP applications and with other enterprise systems such as directories, databases and applications, customers are able to replace manual processes with automated, rules-driven processes that make it even more secure and cost-efficient to manage identities and access privileges across the enterprise.

"SAP customers have already seen the time and cost benefits by being able to integrate DirXML with the mySAP Human Resources application," said Mirko Rajs, manager for Mieschke Hofmann & Partner, a Porsche services company and a leading advisor for process management and SAP programs. "This brings proven identity management solutions to the whole line of SAP applications for even greater interoperability. The broad connectivity of DirXML provides our customers with solutions that leverage their current technology investments rather than requiring them to spend money and training time on new applications and systems."

The DirXML Driver 1.0 for User Management for SAP software solutions has been certified by SAP for its integration with SAP R/3 Release 4.6 and SAP Web Application Server (SAP Web AS) 6.20 and is now available for $10 per user through Novell Authorized Resellers and solution providers or directly from Novell.
