Transforming an enterprise is rarely a straightforward task, and reimagining decades-old business processes around employee onboarding and end-to-end lifecycle management is just one piece of that complexity. Learn how Okta can integrate with legacy software solutions and directories including Active Directory or LDAP and how Okta can help you modernize without disrupting the day to day operations. Join Herminia Gomez from National Geographic and Marc Jordan from Okta as they discuss how NatGeo reimagined their architecture, workflows, and business processes during a partial acquisition by 21st Century Fox in 2015.

Build a Single Source of Truth for Your Digital Identities

Aaron Yee, Okta
Isaac Brumer, Planned Parenthood Federation of America

In many organizations, users' identity data is a mess. Identities are housed in multiple, disconnected data stores, and attributes are formatted inconsistently. This is a challenge for IT teams who need to create a single source of truth to power an IDM system. Good data is needed to provision accounts and automate access management. Learn how Okta can aggregate multiple data sources, transform the data to clean it, and ultimately use it.

Managing Unconventional Lifecycles Like a Rockstar

Amy Kim, Okta

Managing identities in any organization is a challenge, but it is a compounding exercise when doing that with identities not coming from HR (e.g. contractors, contingent workers, or partners). The requirements for onboarding, offboarding, and governing their access is necessarily different from your employees. In this session, you’ll learn how Okta can help manage these unique lifecycles, what's coming soon to further alleviate the burden on IT, and our long term vision in this area.
