To achieve the improvements and deliver a simple, automated user experience, CFA Institute turned to CA Technologies and Simeio Solutions for a seamless, scalable identity and access management (IAM) system that provides the foundation for a trusted IT environment using:
• Identity administration, automated user provisioning and de-provisioning and user self-service;
• Identity and access governance managing entitlements, certification, segregation of duties and role management; and
• Federation / single sign-on across internal and external CFA Institute applications.
“The IAM service from Simeio, backed by CA Technologies IAM solutions, supports both our long-term business and technology strategy to provide services and infrastructure for optimum online engagement and transaction with CFA Institute,” said Elaine Cheng, CFA Institute chief information officer. “Identity and access governance is critical for our organization’s members and candidates who need access to CFA Institute resources, but also value security of personal information. Managing their identities and governing their access is critical to upholding the very basis of our mission – ethics and professional excellence.”
Shawn Keve, Simeio Solutions, said, “Cloud-based IAM from Simeio will provide CFA Institute with efficiencies through reduced infrastructure spend, reduced implementation time and improved productivity. In addition, the scalability and streamlined deployment of the Simeio Cloud Service allows for the anticipated growth of CFA Institute members and desire to add new services.”
