Cooking in the Cloud: Planning for Cloud Service Integrations

Time 04/08/14 04:30PM-05:30PM

Room Governor's Square 10

Session Abstract

Partnering with cloud service providers can be complicated and time-consuming. By the time you educate a vendor about identity management practices in higher ed, work your existing single sign-on and federation into their model, and integrate their service into existing campus services, it's easy to question the value of a cloud service in the first place. For many institutions, these challenges aren't apparent until the contract is signed and the implementation is underway.
The CIC Identity Management task force is creating a Cloud Service Cookbook to help lower these barriers. The cookbook will cover the IDM landscape in higher ed, offer best practices, and make suggestions from procurement to implementation. It will also document the value of InCommon membership for vendors and how joining InCommon helps simplify cloud integration.
This session will discuss what should be included in a federated cloud service integration project plan. Presenters will explain the challenges of cloud service integration, introduce the cloud service cookbook, and explain how the cookbook effort can help schools and vendors create a smoother implementation process.
