The University of the Free State (UFS) is one of South Africa's oldest higher education institutions. UFS has two campuses in Bloemfontein and one in Qwaqwa, serving 24,000 students and 4,500 staff. The IT team at UFS was spending considerable time on maintaining user directories in different systems, and the introduction of a new Microsoft SharePoint solution was likely to increase this workload even further. UFS decided to automate user management by introducing Novell Identity Manager, ultimately saving almost four man-days per month while boosting security.
