If you are deploying Identity IQ for the first time, you want to quickly and accurately onboard your entire suite of critical applications. Any delays simply lengthen the implementation timeline. And if you already use Identity IQ, you want to be able to add new applications to your existing identity governance platform—reliably, accurately, and rapidly.

Unfortunately, for some organizations, application onboarding can be a lengthy and tedious process requiring highly skilled technical resources. In addition, the onboarding and promotion process is manual, making it prone to error. Our experience has taught us that these legacy approaches to manual application onboarding are dated and must leverage repeatable techniques and automation to help achieve scale and desired business outcomes. KPMG can help.

KPMG’s rapid application onboarding

The rapid application onboarding (RAO) from KPMG can reduce the time and technical experience needed for onboarding new applications into SailPoint Identity IQ. Whether you are adding dozens of applications during an initial implementation or onboarding a new enterprise application, using tested methods and introducing automation into the process help achieve quicker business outcomes.

The RAO uses a template to collect application details such as definition, schema, attributes, correlation rules, aggregation job, workgroup, and global tasks. Details for multiple applications can be entered into the tool. Once complete, the template is used to promote the applications to Identity IQ via its APIs. The RAO takes the data from the template and creates all the components needed in Identity IQ to make the application available. After the RAO adds the application to Identity IQ, end users can request access, and role-based access certification can occur.
