Black Light

Black Light Solution

Simplifying compliance of your SAP HCM & HR personal data

What is Black Light?

There is often an assumption that SAP ILM has everything you need for HCM Data. However  ILM provides Deletion Objects only, there is no functionality to Block Access to an employee once they have left the organisation, but due to legislation employers still have to keep employee data for many years. Also deletion through SAP ILM does not delete all the employees data, certain key records are kept.


This is where Proceeds Black Light Solution comes into play, enhancing SAP ILM functionality, it gives users the ability to control what personal information needs to be retained and seen or not as the case may be.
