Business Challenge 

School needed their School Information System (SIS) to synchronize student data their on-prem AD, Azure AD, and G-Suite. Onboarding students at the beginning of the school year was manual and time-consuming and taking up the IT department’s resources. Administrators felt that neither Microsoft nor Google hs provided them with a convenient method with which to both effectively and efficiently manage the identities.

How we helped

Integrate Azure Active Directory with G-Suite and delegate G-suite’s identity management to Azure AD, and redirect the SIS's synchronization from G-suite to either the on-prem AD or Azure AD.

Results

IT administration saves time by managing the school’s on-prem AD, Azure AD, and G-suite identities from a single portal. With more time available, IT administration can be more productive and focus on other critical projects.
