Some members of a department might create data content for their organization, while others simply use data analytics to build business insights. For example, the Registrar’s office within a University might have a manager of the Graduate Students Division and a manager of the Undergraduate Students Division creating content based on student data, while division members use this content to create annual reports for the University.
An important step in privileged access management is adding a Member to a Team and defining their role within the Team. Informer 5 provides comprehensive pre-defined role types for Team members. These role types define sensible access rights and map easily to your organization’s security permissions for your employees. See Table 1.
Although Teams model logical business units within an organization, users can be Members of more than one Team. From an identity and access management perspective, their role within a specific Team is determined by their business role in that Team. For example, the Manager of the Registrar’s office within the University’s Graduate Students Division may be the Administrator for the Graduate Student Team as well as being a Data Wizard for the larger Registrar’s Team.
You can also source both Users and Teams information from a third-party repository using Informer’s Plugin Architecture. For example, Teams can be retrieved for use in Informer by referencing divisions within your organizational chart and applying those Users and Teams to Informer together with the appropriate Roles.
