Forefront Identity Mgmnt -set up.

Forefront Identity Mgmnt allows role-based authentication and single sign-on capability for any employee working with various applications and systems, regardless of the physical location of those systems. FIM is difficult to install and configure the first time - we need assistance from Microsoft certified consultants. Cost of consultants is incremental - we own FIM already. Ongoing IT support of FIM is a .25 FTE. Mobile devices require this easy authentication. FIM should be set up before deployment of tablets or notebooks.

Greater economy of scale and efficiencies are gained with the sharing and collaboration on software and hardware hosting, licensing, and maintenance. Software as a service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) are practical solutions to be pursued, especially by the 8 Metro Counties who are actively pursuing technical collaboration with each other or third party vendors. Managing end user access and security is a primary requirement for success in this strategy: FIM has been designated as the standard tool for identity mgmnt, especially when using the "Metro County Fiber Interconnect" fiber ring.
