Identity in Education
posted April 4, 2011 by Tim Till
As school districts across the United States grapple with budget shortfalls, these same organizations face increased expectations for services to staff, students and parents.
Over the past three to five years we have seen an increase in the need for Identity Lifecycle Management needs for all district staff and we have been actively engaged with districts all across the US to implement solutions that facilitate the fulfillment of this need without creating a bottleneck in IT and minimizing the impact to the IT organization. As districts step out to provide services to students, the need for automation becomes increasingly important due to the sheer number of accounts that must be managed. Adding parents to the list of users makes the task of automated account management absolutely paramount. We have also found that it is just as important to provide facilities for users to manage their accounts (e.g. password recovery, user association, etc) so the users are able to achieve their goals as quickly as possible without having to rely on Helpdesk or other staff to manage their accounts for them.
Our Data Synchronization System and Access Request Management System are the most cost effective tools on the market today that achieve these goals without adversely impacting your budget.
If you want to learn how you can implement a fully automated Identity Lifecycle Management system in these lean times so you are able to meet the demands of your customers yet do so at a very reasonable cost, please contact our Sales Team today!
