The new installation is replacing three existing systems currently being used for creating identities and will allow access to University IT resources, data and physical security systems through one centralised login identity.
The Identity and Access Management solution will be delivered during the next six months.
“CSG looks forward to implementing the solution for ECU, which will alleviate instances of users having multiple logins and ultimately improve the university’s identity management processes”, CSG group general manager of technology solutions, Julie-Ann Kerin, said in a statement.
The implementation will also provide links between key systems such as staff and student records, and IT user account systems. It will also enable the university to federate identity information and enhance its use of the Australian Access Federation offerings for collaboration in learning, teaching and research.
The base system is scheduled to be in operation by June 2011.
“We are excited to implement the new program, which will enable a single lifelong identity to be maintained from an individual’s initial contact with the University right throughout their lifecycle as a student or staff member through to alumni member” ECU project executive, Phillip Draber, said in a statement.
