Client case ​

BR1GHT Managed Services: Identity and access management on SAP, Active Directory and GRC at PVH

PVH is one of global most famous and largest fashion retailers globally. The Power of PVH is fueled by our people and our iconic brands: Calvin Klein, TOMMY HILFIGER, Warner’s, Olga by Warner’s, and True&Co. From their humble start in 1881 mending and selling shirts for coal miners in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, PVH has become a global powerhouse in the fashion industry.

PVH is growing rapidly, which is reflecting on the IT environment. With their 10.000 AD and SAP users. because of the business growth, IDM team is looking for opportunities to leverage a better and more efficient service aiming to

  1. Increase the quality of the IDM team
  2. Decrease dependency on temporary workers
  3. Be a highly effective business partner for the business
  4. Reduce the cost of IT Management
  5. Improvement, automation and standardization of the work processes
  6. Automate and reduce the efforts to ensure efficient SOX testing with no surprises
  7. Limit the risk on Unauthorized access to critical systems

BR1GHT started to support PVH in supporting their improvement program. This program was structured and executed through the following pillars:

  • Governance

The BR1GHT team in South Africa took care of the quality requirements of the client. Conclusion was that the PVH was dependent on a large group of external people. We made an architectural overview on how the future department could look like, we calculated the business case and made a transition plan. During the transition, we integrated the BR1GHT service center within the PVH daily processes and structures. BR1GHT team is not ensuring that the team will be operationally managed and that performance reporting will be done towards PVH.

  • Improving processes execution

BR1GHT optimizes the IDM processes of PVH. The following processes are optimized and/ or automated with Soterion technology:

  • Execution and the improvement of the IDM supporting maintenance processes. BR1GHT is fully integrated within the maintenance processes and systems within PVH. BR1GHT is solving tickets, execution of IDM projects, documenting best practices and improving processes through automation.
  • User and Role certification: to ensure that the users and roles only grant access to appropriate access, Soterion offers the possibility to structure and execute the certification processes and provision changes to SAP. By having these processes automated, you are ensured that all users and roles are reviewed timely and that the risk on unauthorized access is limited.
  • Automation of Sap License review. The team includes the ability to perform a SAP license review. By making use of the Soterion technology, we can automatically analyse the amount and usage of SAP users and extract the appropriate license information for SAP
  • BR1GHT ensures people continue within the team

PVH was dependent on a large group of individual temporary contractors with regard to their SAP, Active Directory and SAP GRC maintenance. PVH has not outsourced their IDM department to BR1GHT service center in South Africa. With these services, BR1GHT guarantees the quality of the team, ensures talent development, scalability and build a knowledge base for our clients. Through our delivery methodology we continuously improve our the quality of our IDM services.

  • Technology as enabler for continuous improvement

BR1GHT provides these services by automating as much as possible and to integrate technologies. The team works via a remote desktop on the technology of PVH like service now and directly in their SAP and AD environments.
