Micro Focus’ identity management solution has been selected by Insync Solutions as part of the South Australian Department for Education’s EdPass project.
Insync Solutions will use Micro Focus’s identity management technology to provide automated account creation and a unified access point via usernames and passwords so users will have seamless access to the internet and zero disruption to learning.
Moving schools, working between schools, or working remotely will also be made less complex with the new system.
EdPass will be used by more than 900 schools and preschools across the state, including 250,000 students and 30,000 staff members.
Scott Bayliss, CIO, Department for Education South Australia, said, “By automating identity management, Micro Focus’s solution will reduce the number of times that staff and students need to login to access the intranet and applications. It will save time, reduce frustration and let schools and preschools focus on teaching and learning.”
The EdPass project is due to be completed by mid 2021 and is part of ICT foundations work that includes SWiFT fibre to schools and preschools and SWiFT Network Technologies.
Paul Williamson, director, Insync Solutions, said, “As a local South Australian business, Insync Solutions is excited to support South Australian schools, businesses, and local jobs. We are also thrilled to be establishing a Trainee Hiring program with the Department for Education as part of the collaborative project. Insync Solutions delivered additional value by using previous experience working with South Australian independent schools, universities and TAFEs to bring practical insights to the EdPass project.”
