Higher Education and Customer Identity and Access Management

From the creation of new digital platforms and introduction of online services, to the possibilities of “smart universities”, higher education - like any other business - is evolving. Technology plays an important role to aid better decision-making, better coordination of users & services, and better communication with students.

Open source technology in particular offers great value in that it leads with innovation and flexibility.

WSO2 Identity Server provides its developer-centric, extensible and fully open source solution in providing seamless and secure connectivity to all students, staff, applications and systems in universities and colleges.

Why should you choose WSO2 for higher education

Customer Identity and access management (IAM) is becoming an integral part of educational institute’s ecosystem with its increasing implementation. This is because providing secure and easy access helps in building trust with all users and communities.
