Vision

Provide secure access to applications that is easy for the user, application owner, and IT administrative staff with solutions that require fewer login credentials, enable collaboration across Harvard and beyond, and improve security and auditing.”

The IAM Program will be implemented to meet the vision in accordance to the previously defined tenets. Additionally, there will be heightened emphasis placed upon an additional set of guiding principles for the program. These include:

  • Harvard Community needs will drive how the technology supports the Identity and Access Program
  • Tactical project planning will remain aligned with the Program strategic objectives
  • Solution design will allow for other Schools to use the foundational services to communicate with the IAM system in a consistent, federated fashion
  • Communication and socialization of the program are critical to its success
