Hyatt Corporation: Hotelier Prepares for Rapid Move to Cloud With New Identity Management Solution
Hyatt was preparing to migrate its 70,000 information workers to Microsoft Office 365 for cloud-based email and collaboration. It first needed to consolidate its Active Directory Domain Services and automate user-credential management. Hyatt worked with identity and access management specialist FishNet Security to reorganize its directory structure, deploy Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010, and create a centralized identity and access management portal. Thanks to the cleanup of the directory service and automated efficiencies, Hyatt was able to migrate as many as 1,000 employees a day to the cloud service and has achieved "Day-one productivity" for new employees, granting them access to needed applications on their first day of work.
