Zigabyte Australia Tech Brief - Problem Solution

The program of work covered these main areas of activity:

  • Integrated with mature, heavily customized SAP HCM (HR) by leveraging the SAP Target System connector, heavily modifying the pre-built OOTB dataset/workflows.


  • Fully automated the existing on-boarding/off-boarding processes, provisioning birthright assignments in AD (multiple domains), Exchange Hybrid, and other proprietary business applications.


  • Integrated 1IM with cloud based ITSM solution (SNow), both provisioning/de-provision user access (Web-Services), as well as developing a custom interface (C#/PowerShell), allowing 1IM to provision account/access to internal system, based on requests from the SNow service catalog.


  • Designed and built monthly/bi-yearly business and regulatory attestation policies, across eight target systems/ platforms with specific roles/ entitlements. This automated and simplified the UAR process and bought the business into compliance.


  • Developed custom, highly complex, reports, using the 1IM relational database, to identify missing/non-compliant access & accounts), across all platforms/applications (Active Directory/Azure – standard, privileged & service accounts, Exchange (user and shared mailboxes), multiple SAP instances, Skype For Business/Teams, Snow & custom-built business applications, integrated with1IM.
