Unique IDM solutions at Lappeenranta University of Technology

Pekka Kuronen


Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) is a dynamic, agile university setting special requirements for its Identity Management. We have developed unique solutions that have proven cost effective and time saving for our university and I believe would do so for other organizations as well.
At LUT we started implementing an IDM solution back in 2003 to meet the need for accurate login data across multiple systems. Since then we have ruled standard IDM solution models to be too inefficient for dynamic organization environments such as ours since it leaves lots of manual effort, coding and administration work in order to keep up with the environment.
From IDM point of view, LUT environment is a rapidly changing one with almost annually changing multiple identity sources, variable data syntaxes, new connected systems and constantly living organizational structures. These changes cannot be handled well with standard IDM implementation models.
