Automating Cloud Collaboration And Meetings User Provisioning And Changes

A mid-sized global manufacturing company was looking to leverage Cloud-based collaboration and meeting services across their workforce, but then faced the challenge of how to provision their users and manage on-going user changes. To do this by manually working within a Cloud administrative environment would have been impractical, given the large number of users. Mercury was able to help by integrating into their employee and directory workflows, capture the initial user list and subsequent change, and then automate the secure transmission of this information into the Cloud-provisioning environment. This allowed the Cloud services to be provisioned and managed similar to other internal applications, and the benefit of the Cloud collaboration and meeting applications to be rapidly extended to their employees.
