From large multinational and government organizations to small companies with complex identity needs, our expanding team of expert consultants will enable our clients to reap the benefits of modern, cloud-based technologies – notably Microsoft Entra – whilst also protecting existing investments and supporting on-premises systems such as Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM).

In addition to our expertise in Microsoft Identity technologies, we are excited to be the implementation partner for SoftwareIDM’s Identity Panel suite, including the new HyperSync Panel which we believe to be a game changer.
