Planning and Modernizing the IAM program at Southern New Hampshire University

The Senior Director of IAM at SNHU discusses how Integral helped them build a strategy, implement SailPoint’s IdentityNow, and support the program with Managed Services. The complex environment included 4 authoritative sources, dual student information systems, and over 1.5 million identities.

Video Snapshot

Southern New Hampshire University is one of the largest colleges in the U.S., with the majority of its more than 200,000 students enrolled online.  SNHU worked with Integral Partners to help plan and implement a modern Identity program.  We created a strategy, including the selection of an Identity platform (SailPoint’s IdentityNow was chosen)​, implement the program, and now support the program through Managed Services.  The SNHU project was the second largest IdentityNow project ever implemented, managing more than 1.5 million identities!

During this conversation, Senior Director of IAM Kevin Leggett discusses the journey and lessons learned.  He starts with the role that Advisory and Phase 0 stages played in preparing the teams and accelerating time to value.  Kevin then talks about how our teams dealt with a very complex environment, including 4 authoritative sources and dual student information systems (Colleague and Banner)​.  Many other interesting topics are touched on, including managing Affiliates, avoiding duplicate identities, Managed Services, looking forward, and advice he’d give over a hot cup of coffee.
