For most companies, Microsoft Active Directory (AD) plays the central role in coordinating identity and access management policies. AD typically serves as a "source of truth" for user identities, and it provides access control to on-premises resources such as networks, file servers, and web applications.
A byproduct of the transition to cloud applications is the proliferation of separate user stores; each cloud application typically is rolled out independently and therefore has its own ...
For many organizations, portals are an increasingly important way of providing critical application access to partners and/or customers. Assembled from multiple web applications, portals introduce unique identity management challenges, because unlike internal employees, users from customers or partners aren't typically stored in the corporate directory. This forces administrators to maintain multiple user-stores and end-users to register, and manage logins for, each app individually.
