Praxism is a leading provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions and professional services based in the UK, specialising in providing highly customized Identity solutions to enterprise customers in the Finance sector.
Working with one of their prospects, a major global fund manager, Praxism identified an opportunity to solve a number of urgent Identity audit requirements. After undertaking a detailed analysis of requirements, identifying a large number of secure, complex systems supporting the prospect’s investment business and a fast-changing population of users, Praxism reached out to NetIQ for assistance.
Kenny Stewart, EMEA Director of Services at NetIQ commented "Praxism has been successful in building expertise capabilities on our Identity and Access Management solutions. We immediately assigned resources to help our Partner close this vital business. Praxism’s ability to deliver tailored solutions in mission critical environments, combined with NetIQ’s products and NetIQs architecture and design services, established a competitive edge which maximized our chances to win this new customer."
Derek Gordon, Technical Director of Praxism, agreed "Once our prospect issued their RFP, we were ready to respond jointly with NetIQ. In the subsequent negotiations, a very significant advantage for us was that our bid was recognised as a fully joined up solution. We were delighted to win this project; our consultants worked side-by-side with both our customer’s IT team and NetIQ to ensure that delivery was completed ahead of schedule, allowing our customer to solve the pending audit reporting requirements".
The solution comprised Access Governance Suite, Identity Manager, Sentinel, Secure Login, Access Manager and combined services from both Praxism and NetIQ. This addressed the customer business goals, which include Readiness Assessments, Roadmap Planning, Disaster Recovery, and High Availability.
NetIQ Project Manager, Hayley Holmes, says "Praxism's knowledge and experience in the IAM space has been vital to the success of this project. This project will result in one of the most extensive and comprehensive deployments of Access Governance Suite with an innovative use of eDirectory for new application development to leverage for authorisation and authentication. This project has proved so successful that Praxism and NetIQ are already engaging with our customer on a number of other urgent requirements."
