From no IAM to a full IAM system synced with Azure in under 30 minutes?

Jul 19, 2022 | Blog, Videos

How long does connecting an IAM platform to your Azure Active Directory Database take?

For most Identity and Access Management Governance platforms, the time it takes to connect to your Active Directory or Azure AD data varies significantly with one constant; it will take a long time. Typically this type of integration takes a minimum of weeks if you have a dedicated team of engineers working on the project. In many cases, this process can take months, and due to the time it takes to implement, there will undoubtedly be changes to the entire structure. Changes during the actual implementation will inevitably push the completion date even further.

It doesn't have to be this way.

If you're like us, this long, arduous process is more than we would prefer to dedicate our time towards if there is a more straightforward, faster method. Our primary goals for our IAM platform IDHub were to make the solution easy to use and fast, blazing fast. There is no better example of the speed of IDHub's capabilities than the processes we put in place to integrate Azure with IDHub. We provided simple steps that anyone can follow and detailed instructions to walk even the most novice user through the process. In areas where code is required, we outline the exact code you will have to use, where, and what additional options are available to you.
