Aquera was founded to eliminate the challenges of integration around identity management platform rollouts and to streamline the associated identity management process and analytics workflows. Aquera achieves this mission with its innovative platform that dramatically simplifies integration for identity management platforms and the ecosystem of platforms that are involved in the identity management provisioning and governance lifecycle. Aquera both expands and accelerates identity platform roll-outs and the expected ROI by taking integration out of the critical path and instantly increasing the number of connected cloud and on-premises applications, databases, directories and devices. The results are dramatic time and cost savings in development and maintenance, an agile IT architecture, more secure and compliant infrastructure and top line revenue and productivity benefits with employees, partners and customers.
