ESUP welcomes new consultants

If you walk through 150 Williamson Hall this week, you’ll see a new work area in the back corner where a conference table used to sit. This is the new home of the Identity Management (IdM) project and its PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) consultants.

ESUP hired PwC to help the University migrate from its homegrown legacy identity platform, more commonly known as X.500, to implementation of the Oracle Identity Manager (OIM).

PwC has a strong, positive work history on projects similar to ESUP at other large, complex institutions. “PwC brings the experience, knowledge, and skills from implementing OIM and related modules at institutions with user bases over 100,000 people,” said Arash Forouhari, ESUP Identity Management project director. “They have the ability and resources to take what we have now, a system that’s over 15 years old, and migrate it to the new environment by the time ESUP goes live in the fall of 2014.”

About half of the total PwC team started on August 19 to get going with the Analyze and Design phase of the project. By October, PwC will have 15 staff people dedicated to ESUP until it’s complete.

"We are happy to have PwC on-board to help us with our IdM project being led by Arash,” said ESUP Program Director Andy Hill. “They bring great expertise to assist us with implementing this complicated and necessary software."
