The University of Chichester had previously utilized NetIQ Identity Manager solution for management of staff and student identities. The university made a strategic decision to replace NetIQ with a more modern platform in the face of rising support costs with the aim of simplifying the infrastructure and identity lifecycle workflows for its joiners, movers and leavers.


The university selected the ideiio Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) platform for its simple, secure and cost-effective identity lifecycle management capabilities. By linking HR and IT systems ideiio enabled a single source of truth for staff and student information simplifying provisioning and ensuring only the right people have access to the right systems at the right time, meeting the university’s future needs.


Due to the benefits of out-of-the-box workflows and ideiio’s availability as a SaaS, on-premise or hybrid solution, both integration and deployment time were quickened enabling implementation to be planned in the small timeframe outside of term time when activity would be at its lowest.
