Enterprise IT organizations are under increasing pressure to synchronize and automate the process of
user provisioning / de-provisioning across a range of applications on the corporate network. This
challenge is even harder to manage given the distributed nature of a user’s identity information
maintained across traditionally siloed applications. The need to support a range of user access methods
– including computers, smart phones, web portals and application access – further adds to the high
cost of managing user identities and access permissions across the organization.
As a user enters or leaves an organization their access to the range of corporate applications must
change. They must either be added to those applications, removed or potentially have their access
privileges modified due to a role change. For organizations that are using Active Directory extensively,
this also means provisioning the user into Active Directory. The decisions on how to provision users is
a business decision determined by what applications and privileges the user needs to be productive.
This is a policy decision and not a technical one. Once the policy decisions are in place an appropriate
technical solution can be put in place to increase the efficiencies of how it all happens.
User provisioning however should also be viewed as an evolution. The right long term solution is to
begin to consolidate identity and to reduce the amount of synchronization that is required. Active
Directory represents an opportunity for this consolidation and Avaleris has the expertise and
experience to help achieve this long term objective.
