OK, I admit it. I am a big Clint Eastwood fan. And it helps me as I talk to clients!
The IT landscape is full of dangers and people with black hats. It’s a complex world where resources can be scarce. It pays to keep your head down, your words to a minimum, and to let your actions speak for themselves.
Like Clint’s characters, most of my clients know what they need. They know their problems and their environments. Where they come from and where they are going. They don’t want to be crammed into a cookie cutter, one size fits all solution. They want a framework to work in that allows them the freedom to solve their business problems in a way that works for them and their budget.
That’s why our GroupID suite is offered a la carte. If you only need group management then you don’t need to buy a colossal solution that includes user provisioning and certificate management. If you do need a complete identity and group management solution then the three modules work together beautifully as a complete solution. We work with you to fit the pieces together and craft the solution that is right for you.
Because we offer a web based end user solution for Active Directory our clients have a wide tolerance for how much and what information can be changed by end users.
So we provide the rope. Our clients get to decide how much they use now and how much they use later.
Do you need to provide a “phone book” view to your end users and allow nearly unfettered group access rights to your executive team? You can do that. Do you want users to change their Active Directory passwords and group membership? You can do that too. Do you need to enforce group naming conventions but still allow users to make changes? No problem.
GroupID will provide the framework and the ability to customize solutions to match your business case, your environment, and your comfort level. And most of the time you can do it yourself, no consulting required!
I think that Clint would appreciate that.
