How does it work?

User Governance provides additional governance and control via the SharePoint platform, which delivers native integration to Microsoft products including Active Directory, Excel, and SharePoint. User Governance can be deployed to a new or existing SharePoint environment. The minimum requirement is Windows SharePoint Services, which is the basic version of SharePoint available for Windows Server.


Can User Governance be deployed without SharePoint?
User Governance requires a SharePoint environment. However, Windows SharePoint Services, which is freely available for Windows Server, is adequate for deploying User Governance.
What is the impact on SAP after installing User Governance?
User Governance is separate from SAP and can be deployed without any modifications to SAP.
What is the format of the audit logs?
All User Governance audit reports can be viewed in a browser or exported to Excel spreadsheets.
Are multi-step approval workflows possible?
The standard User Governance workflows support one-step approval processes. These workflows can be replaced by custom workflows that include multi-step approvals and/or facilitate multiple data contributors with the full version of Foundation.
How does User Governance affect SAP performance?
User Governance is a completely separate environment that does not have any direct communication with SAP, and will not have a direct impact on the SAP system. User Governance provides added controls and auditing for the interaction of Winshuttle’s products with SAP. By allowing IT to create usage policies for Winshuttle users, User Governance can help minimize the load on the SAP system during peak hours of operation.
