Baylor University Case Study
“We’ve been able to achieve our security and IAM-related goals and SLAs, plus accelerate the introduction of new services to our constituents due to the operational efficiencies afforded by Fischer.”
Baylor University’s identity management solution began in the 1990’s as a homegrown user administration software. Their Information Technology Services team continually expanded this software of the years to address new security and business requirements. Some common challenges were being experienced from similar in house developed solutions:
Baylor ITS sought a solution to automate identity life cycle management in an auditable fashion for students and employees. Baylor selected Fischer’s Identity as a Service® cloud and full suite of services.
Expanded IAM Service
Since the original Fischer Identity implementation there have been additional phases to ensure Fischer Identity solutions grow with the University’s security strategy requirements. Additions to the original IAM framework include integrations and new features ingrained to adapt to their on-going dynamics.
Fischer continues to collaborate with Baylor University on IAM market sensing trends influencing product roadmap. Baylor University is also planning additional phases of extending their IAM solution to drive additional automation throughout the University.
