Introducing the TIER ID Match Component

Time 10/17/18 09:00AM-09:50AM

Room Pacifica Ballroom 4/5

Session Abstract

Educational institutions typically have complex onboarding processes involving multiple authoritative Systems of Record. Identifying duplicate subjects across these systems is a key first step in campus identity management, a process known as "Identity Matching". Existing solutions are often based on expensive and complicated commercial software, or are homegrown.

The new TIER ID Match component [note: final branding not yet determined] is open source and tailored towards the needs of the Research and Education community. Based on the TIER ID Match API, it integrates with other TIER components, providing a configurable, easier to maintain solution.

This session will explain the history and background of the project, the project goals, and the ID Match API. It will discuss various approaches for integration (into TIER deployments and existing non-TIER systems) and provide a demonstration of the new product..
