The university made a strategic decision to replace NetIQ with a modern identity platform.
The University of Chichester is West Sussex's only university with just over 5,500 students spread over two locations. Although one of the smallest universities in the UK, University of Chichester experiences the same complex identity management issues that all modern universities face with an ever-changing student lifecycle, an increase in security threats and limited resources.
NetIQ Identity Manager was utilised by the university to manage staff and student identities but was being faced with increased support costs. Identity management specialist and support partner, ProofID were approached to discuss a future proof IAM roadmap for the university. The university then made a strategic decision to replace NetIQ with a modern identity platform with the goal of simplifying infrastructure and identity lifecycle workflows for its joiners, movers and leavers encompassing staff, student and third parties.
Fastpath (formerly ideiio) the Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) platform was selected.
Fastpath (formerly ideiio) the Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) platform was selected for its simple, secure, and cost-effective identity lifecycle management capabilities. By linking HR and IT systems, Fastpath (formerly ideiio) enabled a sole source of truth for staff and student information and simplified provisioning, meaning the right people have access to the right systems at the right time, meeting the university’s future needs.
Automated provisioning across all applications, along with the user self-service portal has significantly reduced the strain on IT support.
