Identity and WPI: How Higher Education Can Become Cloud-First


Higher Education represents 17 percent of all reported data breaches yet new user engagement models are a must to remain relevant. The Higher-Ed IT ecosystem consists of a large, complex web of users and applications which aggravates risk, especially:

  • Overlapping and ever-changing roles and personas between students, staff and faculty
  • Legacy IAM systems with heavy customizations
  • Identity implementations for institutions are challenging, costly, and time-consuming

A paradigm shift— one which makes IAM a priority— is needed to drive out risk and complexity in the Higher Education environment.

Join Tracy LaMantia, IAM Program Manager, and Sean O’Connor, CTO, from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) as they discuss the challenges WPI has faced, business drivers, vision and approach to building a strong IAM foundation, and partner strategy. Diana Volere, Principal Solution Architect at Saviynt, and Brent Andrewsen, Senior Manager at Integral Partners will also join WPI to discuss how Saviynt and Integral became WPI partners of choice.
