Why Do We Need Data Owners?
In tenfold, standard access rights are role-based and assigned automatically on the basis of privilege profiles/roles. However, users can also request additional privileges via tenfold’s self-service. It is not advisable to place the responsibility of approving such privilege requests into the hands of IT admins because they are usually not familiar with the job duties of the user making the request. It is, however, essential that the person evaluating the request is familiar with such details. This is why, in tenfold, you can appoint data owners who are in charge of privileges. This would typically be a department head or person with a similar level of authority.
