The Challenge

HR Information Systems (HRIS), like BambooHR, are usually the system of record for employee information. IT needs this employee data in order to create new accounts, provision applications, and deactivate users when they leave a business. This exchange between HR and IT can be a friction-filled process and is high risk for data transcription error and security vulnerabilities. With the explosion of cloud-based apps, HR systems, and directories, communication between HR and IT needs to be drastically simplified and improved.

  • Process inefficiency: It’s time-consuming to transmit employee data through email or file extracts—and risky, too
  • Security loopholes: Deprovisioning users takes an average of 47 working hours—a long time to be unsecured
  • Wasted employee time: Filing helpdesk tickets and waiting for apps and permissions updates takes a toll on output

The Solution

Okta plus BambooHR is a pre-built integration that keeps HR and IT in sync. Employee data and profile updates in BambooHR inform IT systems, enabling automated user lifecycle management across apps (both SaaS and on-premises) and directories like Microsoft Active Directory.
