NZ Education ministry puts identity management in the cloud

By

Telecom NZ subsidiary Gen-i has won a five year contract to build and deploy a cloud-based identity and access management system for the New Zealand Ministry of Education.

According to Gen-i - which has long standing relationship with the Ministry of Education through the provision of voice, mobile and data services - the cloud service will provide secure access to potentially 32,000 users of applications or services at the Ministry, the Tertiary Education Commission and NZ Qualifications Authority.

The new Identity and Access Management Service will be delivered as a software as a service and will be hosted locally in Gen-i's data centres using Gen-i's ReadyCloud service, removing the need for the Ministry to purchase costly servers and underlying support infrastructure, according to Gen-i.

Gen-I will partner with Infosys and Hyro to implement and operated the service. Infosys will be responsible for the deployment and ongoing management within the Gen-i ReadyCloud infrastructure and Melbourne-based digital agency Hyro will provide its Idaptive identity management software to underpin the new identity and access management service.

Idaptive is already being used by the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development to manage the identities of over 1.5 million parents, teachers and student.

The Ministry of Education's CIO, Leanne Gibson, said: "We were impressed with the use of this service by the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and immediately saw the potential for deploying this solution for New Zealand education providers."

The contract was awarded via competitive tender. The first application is to be delivered by July this year and the full identity access and management service is to be deployed by 30 November 2012.
