Administrators spend a fair amount of their time on assigning access rights. In the classic process, the decision concerning assignment of rights (supervisor) and their technical execution (administrator) are separated.

The administrator does not know who should have what permissions and thus becomes merely an executor of specifications. 



It is more efficient to have the authorisation and assigning of permissions to occur at the same time. Thus, only the necessary individuals are involved in the process. 8MATE GrantMA uses a workflow in which only the individual employees and their superiors (data owner) are involved.

  • The employees requests their access rights via a web portal.
  • The data owners decide on the access rights in their department.

The GrantMA workflow has the following advantages:

  •  The administrator is no longer involved in the process and can now focus on his core responsibilities. 
  • The data owner, who is most familiar with the information structure of the department decides on the release of data and assigns the rights - all in one step.
  • Changes that have been made are recorded in audit-proof manner in the 8MAN logbook.
