Security’s role within the new Cloud

Hi everyone! Despite a lot of companies are still using on-premise applications like SAP Logon (a.k.a. SAP GUI), the truth is that, eventually, everything will be managed in the cloud. This is a good thing: simplification, effectiveness, more capabilities, and every other benefit that the cloud offers.

However, I’ve been meditating on whether back-end security will dramatically change as we know it (not to say, disappear). With the new capabilities of cloud-based Fiori and HANA, the need for SAP Logon is less relevant, and with it the need of things like role management in PFCG, users in SU01, traces, and so on.

What do you think? Shall we, Security experts, be prepared for a radical change on the way we do things?
