Lynbrook, NY (PRWEB) October 28, 2014
Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management (IDM/IAM) solutions and Schoology, the leading learning management system for global K-12 schools and universities, today announced their integration partner relationship. Under the agreement, Tools4ever will use its technology to automate functionality between Student Information Systems (SISs) and Schoology’s innovative learning management system.
Schoology provides a learning management system (LMS) that simplifies instruction and learning in a collaborative, intuitive platform. Tools4ever offers a connection from their User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA) solution to Schoology to automate student, teacher, and employee account management as well as course and enrollment information.
Specifically, the UMRA connector allows system administrators to automate the creation, movement, and the de-provisioning of employee and student accounts, so that no manual action needs to be taken. This allows school districts to eliminate manual inputs of data from their Student Information System (SIS) into their Active Directory and will instead automatically manage the lifecycle of the user accounts across the enterprise within AD and Schoology. The result is reduced the time and resources the IT department spends dealing with account management issues.
In reference to the new partnership, Dean Wiech, managing director at Tools4ever stated, “Our partnership with Schoology will allow us to combine our resources to provide a superior solution for school districts across the country. We look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership for many years to come.”
“At Schoology we strive to build new partnerships that will streamline the management of multiple systems for our users,” said Bill Kindler, Schoology Co-Founder and Executive Vice President. “We look forward to offering our customers a powerful, integrated solution with Tools4Ever that will simplify processes and save time.”
Tools4ever distinguishes itself with a no-nonsense approach and a low Total Cost of Ownership. In contrast to comparable Identity & Access Management solutions, Tools4ever implements a complete solution in several days rather than weeks or months. Because of this approach, Tools4ever is the undisputed Identity & Access Management market leader, with more than one million user accounts managed on a daily basis.
Tools4ever supplies a variety of software products and integrated consultancy services involving Identity Management, such as User Provisioning, RBAC, Password Management, SSO and Access Management. For more information, please visit http://www.tools4ever.com.
