Automation isn’t just a tech buzzword; it’s an integral part of creating seamless user experiences and streamlining organizational operations. Our recent webinar, “Automated User Onboarding, Changes, and Offboarding with Entra ID Governance,” delved into this crucial topic, exploring how to harness automation for user management processes.
The Cost of Manual Actions
In many organizations, manual actions—though often deemed necessary—are cost centers. Such actions require coordination across various teams, from HR to IT to Management, not forgetting Security and Compliance. With multiple hands in the pot, consistency can wane, and efficiency might plummet.
Key Takeaways from the Webinar
- Why Discuss This? Organizational changes like onboarding new hires or contractors, managing role changes, and offboarding are usually managed manually and disconnectedly by various teams, leading to inconsistencies.
- Microsoft Entra ID Governance: An essential tool that integrates entitlement management, access reviews, and lifecycle workflows. This ensures automating group memberships, user account management, and even integrates with logic apps.
- Automating Lifecycle Processes: For employees joining, moving within, or leaving the organization, automated processes can significantly reduce manual workload and errors. This includes handling new employees, those changing departments or roles, and even managing retirements and terminations.
- Recommendations: Don’t merely replicate your existing manual process into an automated system. Start with the most prevalent use cases and slowly branch out to department-specific ones. To keep things under control, ensure thorough testing, proper documentation, and set up automation and alerts.
So, Who Needs Automation?
While it might be tempting to think of automation as something only large teams or departments need, our recommendation is clear: Start small. Begin with a compact team or new resources. But in the long run? Everyone stands to benefit from it.
