We are in the process of researching an identity and access management solution for our school. For a couple years we were headed down the Novell Identity Management road, with the intention of having support from https://www.netiq.com/ , and using the Ellucian-->eDirectory ldap adapter.
Long story short the school decided to scrap all Novell products. So the identity management team is starting over.
I would be curious to hear what identity and access management solutions your school is using, and what your experiences have been.
We will be moving to Luminis 5 in about a year. Is Luminis 5 just as happy using AD as any other LDAP compliant directory server? Any difficulties?
Did you decide to stick with a single vendor, or is your IDM solution made up of different vendor solutions? I've noticed a few schools have chosen to have one vendor handle the data feeds from banner into directories, and then a second vendor to handle the access control (sso/password management).
And lastly, what was your timeline like?
