Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management (IdM/IAM) solutions, is pleased to announce its participation as a Platinum Sponsor at the 2015 Skyward International Conference (iCon), in St. Pete Beach, Florida, March 11- 13th, 2015.

“This year, the conference will be based on the theme of Be Brilliant. Every Skyward user should feel brilliant when using their Skyward system.” Tools4ever will be showcasing how their solutions allow schools to cut costs and increase efficiencies within the Skyward system.

Tools4ever is a long time business partner with Skyward, and offers a certified connector between their solution, User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA), and Skyward. This connector ensures that data from Skyward automatically, and without manual intervention, becomes available in the Active Directory, Open Directory, LDAP as well as email systems and educational applications, such as electronic learning environments, library systems, etc. Any change in Skyward is detected by UMRA and then the necessary action is performed in the target systems.

The benefits of an automated connection between Skyward and the target system include complete consistency, faster turnaround times for creating accounts, creating accounts accurately and the ability to apply a workflow for approvals and downstream provisioning.

“Tools4ever has had a long-time and strong partnership with Skyward,” said Dean Wiech, managing director of Tools4ever. “The connection between UMRA and Skyward has benefited many school districts throughout the US, and continues to evolve to meeting the changing needs of the education industry.”
