IB Chooses Salford Software

The International Baccalaureate (IB), a not-for-profit education foundation, has chosen Salford Software to implement a world-wide Identity Management roll out which will provide a single identity repository for its 600 staff in several global locations including Cardiff, UK Bethesda, USA, The Hague, Netherlands and Singapore.

Phase one, which is underway, will aim to create an identity vault, provide password self-service and allow single sign-on to a range of web applications for its employees, creating a single repository for staff identities.

Phase two will roll the system out to up to 100,000+ external stakeholders such as teachers, school coordinators, examiners and other professionals working with the IB in 140 countries around the world.

The IDM solution will enable the IB to automate the staff starters, movers and leavers' process whilst improving security by restricting access to information based upon their role within the organisation.

Phase one is underway and will be the focus in 2011.
