THOUGHT LEADERSHIP WEBINAR
IDENTITY AND WPI: HOW HIGHER EDUCATION CAN BECOME CLOUD-FIRST
RECORDED ON JANUARY 31, 2019
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
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.
Hear Tracy LaMantia, IAM Program Manager, and Sean O’Connor, CTO, from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) as they discussed 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 also joined WPI to discuss how Saviynt and Integral became WPI partners of choice.
