Lynbrook, NY (PRWEB) July 07, 2015
Tools4ever, the market leader in identity and access management (IdM/IAM) solutions, announced today that they will be exhibiting at BbWorld 2015 in Washington, DC July 21st through the 23rd, 2015.
BbWorld is the premier education technology training, networking, and professional development event for Blackboard users from around the globe and one of the largest educational gatherings in the industry.
Tools4ever will be available to discuss why identity and access management solutions are critical to educators, as well as answer questions about the most pressing concerns and needs of IT leaders seeking to mitigate their user and password management issues. They will also be discussing how their solutions integrate seamlessly with Blackboard’s industry leading teaching and learning solutions to relieve significant burdens from the IT department.
Managing accounts within Blackboard’s solutions is a time consuming task when data is maintained manually. Tools4ever’s User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA) offers the functionality to automatically manage student data in Blackboard’s solutions, by extracting relevant information from any SIS (e.g. Banner, JPAMS or PowerSchool) and synchronizing it to Blackboard. Every time student information changes, this information is automatically detected by UMRA and updated in Blackboard’s solutions.
Specific actions which can be automated include; create user; update user name or location, change roles, reset password, get all users and delete user. Functionality can also be extended to additional actions such as class rosters for enrollment.
Tools4ever is also an approved Blackboard Building Blocks partner. This allows them to combine expertise and access Blackboard resources to effectively integrate as well as develop customizations and integrations that enhance the learning process.
