The 6 Steps to Building an Identity Factory


Thanks to the automation of key IAM processes, SailPoint’s identity security technology strengthens identity and access management security, reduces risk, and saves your team time and money. But if your organization is like most, then the devil is in the details, especially when it comes to onboarding hundreds of applications onto the actual IdentityIQ platform.

The Application Onboarding Burden

Many teams struggle with development inefficiencies, which can often lead to onboarding delays. Primarily, most larger organizations carry hundreds and hundreds of applications, each with its own support requirements. This is complicated even further by the availability of experienced resources to help with onboarding. Application variability proves just as overwhelming, revealing integration unknowns and challenges along the onboarding path.

Accelerate IAM Efforts with an Identity Factory

As part of Regatta’s Identity FastTrack™ framework, we build an identity factory that leverages agile processes to help identity-enable and track application development from production to management and monitoring. With an identity factory for SailPoint IdentityIQ, you and your team can facilitate faster application onboarding than ever.

The innovative workflow process offers a more expansive, consistent onboarding experience at a lower cost and with reduced labor overall. By leveraging a proven approach built on standardized processes, Regatta makes every step of the onboarding process effortless. Our team has helped dozens of companies establish and implement an identity factory of their own, and the results speak for themselves.

Faster Onboarding, Faster Time to Value 

Building out an Identity Factory can supercharge not just the speed at which applications are onboarded, but also the volume and complexity of apps available. No one understands this better than Nelnet, a Nebraska-based student loan service provider and customer of SailPoint and Regatta. With a high-production identity factory at their disposal providing structure and guidance on identity implementation across the board, Nelnet has reached new integration highs and can onboard more complex applications quickly and seamlessly.
