Identity and Access Management

NOTE: For 2017 this project has been combined with the Integration project, creating the new Enabling Platforms project.

Staff want quick and easy access to applications so they can focus on the important work they need to do in a safe and secure environment.

Through introducing Single Sign On capability, the Identity and Access Management (IAM) Project will start the process towards improving the management and security of staff and student access across multiple systems within the University to enhance user experience and create a stronger, more secure environment.
