  • As the CSU grew we found ourselves taking on more and more [systems and directories] and the impact upon BaU was significant. Now when we take on a new organisation we commission Sector IT to build a set of IDM drivers straight away.
  • Starters and leavers were killing us. Relying on ESR wasn't even helping because HR can have staff in post for a month before they have to be paid. We still struggle but at least we can deliver a set of accounts based on a starter's role within seconds.
  • We were dependant upon IDM but had started to grow afraid of it, Sector helped us to take control.

Identity Management

NetIQ's Identity Manager (IDM) can help you to synchronise multiple, disparate directories using a proven and powerful rule-set. You define your business logic and IDM takes care of the rest.

NetIQ Identity Manager

Even relatively small public sector organisations maintain multiple directories, application databases and operating systems. Maintaining user accounts across a range of systems using a variety of administrative tools inevitably results in anomalies as mistakes and omissions in the first-line provisioning and de-provisioning processes cause the consistency of the various data sources to diverge.

IDM is built to ease administrative overheads by eliminating the duplication of effort. At the same time NetIQ's IDM toolset gives you the means to enforce the integrity of your environment by managing user identity and authentication mechanisms from a single point.

That single point can be the IDM vault itself or any of the managed data sources within the organisation.

IDM supports a large number of systems and connection mechanisms including:

  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • Novell eDirectory
  • Avaya
  • PeopleSoft
  • Oracle Database
  • SAP HR and User Management
  • Lotus Domino
  • Novell GroupWise
  • MySQL
  • any JDBC-compliant database
  • any LDAP-compliant directory
  • NIS
  • SIF
  • SOAP
  • Microsoft Windows NT
  • RACF
  • ACF2

and many others including a range of Unix and Linux user databases.

How Can We Help?

A common issue for public sector organisations is the existence of an IDM driver that was set up 'ages ago'. Of course it's been sitting there ever since, doing its job without a hiccup for years and now nobody in the organisation has skills to maintain or manage it.

Perhaps a stack of accounts has just vanished and you think IDM is to blame.

Have you had an audit request and discovered several thousand accounts for users you know don't work for you?

If you'd like to take control of your user provisioning and reduce your administrative overheads contact Sector IT to see how you can manage all of your user estate from a single, authoritative source.

Flexible Contracts

We can provide support for IDM either as bespoke consulting or under an annual maintenance arrangement.
