GP Strategies Launches Their First SAP Cloud Platform Extension in SAP App Center

COLUMBIA, MD., July 8, 2019— Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX) is pleased to announce that it has launched its first SAP Cloud Platform Extension, Heimdall, on the SAP App Center. The SAP App Center is a digital enterprise marketplace for SAP customers to discover and purchase bolt-on extensions and applications from SAP partners that will work with customers’ existing SAP technology solutions.

“I am excited for GP Strategies to have reached this milestone in our journey to support clients in all facets of their SAP SuccessFactors cloud landscape. We have been developing custom solutions for our clients on SAP Cloud Platform, but this is the first step in providing standardized solutions to a larger audience at a lower cost,” states William Finegan, Vice President, GP Strategies. “Our team is dedicated to leveraging the SAP Cloud Platform, helping our clients that need to diverge from the standard or require an improved user interface experience to engage their users.”

Heimdall is built to support customers using the Role-Based Permissions (RBP) security framework within their SAP SuccessFactors system. The application extends RBP to better support the managed roles that cannot be granted based on user data or job relationships.  Senior Application Architect on the Heimdall product release, Adam Kvist Lamaa, states “Heimdall enables you to provide a self-service dashboard integrated with SuccessFactors, enabling users to request required access roles in the system. The main benefit to customers is that it helps distribute a heavy, centralized administrative process, allowing local administrators to review and approve requests. As a result, your organization achieves a much smoother process and full audit trail on all granted system accesses.”

GP Strategies is proud to be a certified SAP gold partner and to be featured as a vendor and partner on the SAP Cloud Platform. To become an approved vendor for the SAP App Center, partners must be an SAP Build Partner. All applications undergo a rigorous Application Readiness Check (ARC) conducted by SAP to ensure that the solutions adhere to SAP’s quality standard.
