Access management helps control user access, including tracking and authorization as needed. Access management systems are vital as they help bolster organization data security. As organizations grow, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage employee roles and user activity manually.
Automating these workflows helps ensure employees have the correct permission levels and only access the resources they need.
This blog will discuss how we leveraged Microsoft Power Platform – a low-code platform to build a seamless Access Management System by automating repeatable tasks and enhancing employees’ productivity.
Power Platform brings together the robust power of Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents into one business application platform to enable quick and easy app development and provide data insights. Each product of Power Platform is built on the Dataverse, i.e., Common Data Service (Dataverse). Power Platform offers deep integration with GitHub and Microsoft Teams. All four components/products offer a comprehensive platform where you don’t need a code to build the applications.
Dataverse is the core of the Microsoft Power Platform. Dataverse is a secure database hosted in the Azure Cloud platform, prebuilt with a standard set of entities and record types.
Power Platform has following four products/components:
Microsoft's Power Platform leverages Artificial Intelligence (AI), Hyper Automation, and Mixed Reality to connect systems, automate processes, improve data insights, and empower employees to do more.
In today's modern digital world, organizations have multiple systems where data governance consumes most of the resources and plays a critical role in request management process execution. Most of the time, each process/system is designed independently and works in silos. Such process makes it challenging to raise, track requests, monitor, approve/reject requests, and/or follow-up with the concerned department/person to speed up request fulfilment.
Data governance is a collection of roles, policies, standards, processes, and metrics to enable effective and efficient use of information. It defines who takes what action, on what data, in what situations, and using what methods.
Access Management System (AMS) helps you to fully automate all manual tasks involved in any access management process using components of Power Platform. AMS is a centralized self-service system where any user can browse different categories of reports available in the organization, raise requests, and take necessary approvals. Right from the interface for raising requests to all intermediate approvals, notifications in each stage and followed by IT support and Power BI Report support interaction if necessary.
AMS also supports monitoring and analysis of access requests by admins through rich visualizations to take necessary actions for fulfilment.
Per app plan (per user/app/month)
Best for businesses that want to license each user to run one app at a time, with the flexibility to stack licenses for each additional app.
Per user plan (Run unlimited apps per user/month)
Best for businesses that want one license for each user, regardless of the number of apps they need to run.
Power Apps is included in O365 or D365 license. The user will have access to some Power Apps functionality. However, the user will lose access to the complete Power Apps capabilities, including premium connections and features such as Common Data Service.
