Identity Recharge & Modernization

Ensure your existing IAM strategy secures against current threats and meets your business goals

Do you may have an IAM strategy and roadmap that is now a year or more old. Changes to your business, priorities, and outside threats make revisiting your roadmap essential (or you might read about it later).

⦿  Are you tracking well to your original plan? If not, why not?
⦿  What new tools and features should you should be aware of?
⦿  What new threats do you need to protect against?

Are there new business processes that affect the roadmap and need addressed? A recharge will help find gaps, identify new trends and approaches, and get side-tracked projects back on track.

Creating an IAM program at Southern New Hampshire University

The majority SNHU’s 190,000+ students are enrolled online. They needed an IAM program that could manage multiple, overlapping identities — including students, faculty, adjunct faculty, staff, part-time staff, temporary workers, and contractors. Each of these individuals can have multiple affiliations.

The Integral Partners Advisory team delivered a detailed diagram of SNHU’s system architecture, a prioritized roadmap, and best-fit solution recommendations. Our team demonstrated how two applications — Sailpoint’s IdentityNow (for students) and IdentityIQ (for staff) — would best manage the lifecycle requirements and active directory needs of the university’s diverse populations.

At the crux of this solution is an intelligent architecture for how all the applications — Colleague, Banner, SalesForce, IdentityNow, ServiceNow, and more — work together.
