Cost-saving self-service features allow end users the ability to request and gain access to the necessary groups and applications at the right time, through an approval process managed by the relevant business owner.
Due to regulated industries, today’s businesses often need advanced access governance controls across on-premises and cloud-based resources to meet their security, compliance, and efficiency requirements. A strategic alliance between Microsoft and Omada enables customers to deploy a richer ‘better together’ approach by enabling Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium with Omada’s Identity Governance solution, to provide full provisioning and lifecycle governance capabilities across more enterprise systems both on-premises and in the cloud, in a seamlessly integrated solution, delivered on the Azure cloud and in Microsoft Online Services.
Self-service access requests
To assist in driving down IT management and supports costs,self-service features within the joint solution allow end users the ability to request and gain access to the necessary groups and applications at the right time, through an approval process managed by the relevant business owner.
As users are granted the self-service access to groups and applications, an organization will need to ensure that they also implement cost-effective credential lifecycle management, for consistent authentication and seamless sign-on, the joint deployment offerings from Microsoft and Omada that will ensure strong authentication methods can be used, not only across 1st and 3rd party connected systems, but also across systems deployed in a hybrid cloud environment.
With the dynamic access to systems, organizations need to ensure that they can classify unstructured data correctly and accordingly, track access to this data, all whilst providing the business owners with a view and control to act on any access risks or compliance violations.
Best practice process framework
With digital transformation organizations are moving to the cloud, IT departments and business owners are under cost pressures to ensure that through any migrations or system consolidations they can reduce the user impact of accessing systems and data across a hybrid cloud deployment. The features and functionality that Microsoft provide will ensure that migrations can happen in not only a staged manner, but also in a simple and governed manner through automatic provisioning and single sign-on access to the necessary business applications. Omada build on this through their Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) best practice process framework allowing the business to not only establish control over their business-critical applications, but also maintain control to avoid costs increases as they migrate to the cloud.
