The Successful Migration of a Services Firm from SailPoint to Azure AD
The client is a large financial services company with over 7000 employees across multiple locations worldwide. They used SailPoint for identity management and access control but faced high costs, lengthy deployment times, and difficulty managing the solution.
After evaluating different options, the client migrated to Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) for identity and access management. The migration process involved a phased approach, where the client’s existing identity and access policies were analyzed and replicated in Azure AD. As a result, the migration was completed on time, with minimal downtime and disruptions.
The client achieved significant cost savings by migrating to Azure AD. They could save up to 55% on licensing costs, as Azure AD offered a more cost-effective subscription model. Additionally, the client reduced their hardware and infrastructure costs by up to 34%, as they no longer required dedicated servers for identity management.
Manpower and Resource Savings
The client also saw significant savings in terms of manpower and resources. With Azure AD, they no longer needed a dedicated team to manage the identity management solution. This resulted in a 30% reduction in manpower costs and freed up resources for other critical business areas.
Azure AD provided multi-factor authentication, conditional access policies, and identity protection features that helped clients improve their security posture. The client was able to achieve compliance with industry regulations and security standards, which was critical for their business.
The client successfully migrated from SailPoint to Azure AD, resulting in significant cost savings, reduced manpower and resource requirements, and enhanced security features. The migration was completed promptly and efficiently, with minimal disruptions. Azure AD proved to be a reliable and secure identity management solution for the client, allowing them to focus on other critical business areas.
