Banner – IAM Integration

Banner® – IAM Integration & Support Services

ForgeRock's IAM stack (especially OpenIDM) serves as an identity vault with rule based account provisioning capabilities as well as OpenICF connectors for integrating with downstream target systems. It is designed to provide an individual with the appropriate access to enterprise systems based on the individual’s affiliation with the University (i.e. Faculty, Staff, Student or Alumni). 

Banner® ERP system is the authoritative source for the majority of Identity information for identities associated with a college or a university. Banner® also implements critical business processes for managing information related to employees, students, recruits and some vendors. The role of Banner® in a Banner®-IAM integration is to be an authoritative source for data.
