What is Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM)?

Microsoft Identity Manager

Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 binds Microsoft’s identity and access management solutions together by seamlessly bridging multiple on-premises authentication stores like Active Directory, LDAP, Oracle, and other applications with Azure Active Directory. This provides consistent experiences to on-premises LOB applications and SaaS solutions.

Microsoft Identity Manager helps you resolve issues by providing self-service identity management for your users, automated lifecycle management across heterogeneous platforms for your administrators, and a rich policy framework for enforcing corporate security policies and detailed audit capabilities.

New Signature deploys Microsoft Identity Manager to simplify identity lifecycle management through automated workflows and business rules, and provide easier integration with heterogeneous platforms. We empower information-workers with end-user self-service capabilities embedded in Outlook or delivered via a familiar SharePoint experience.

For IT teams, the end result is improved security and compliance with auditing across identities, role-based access control, and deep role discovery. New Signature also empowers IT teams through Microsoft-certified education and learning curricula on Microsoft Identity Manager and the surrounding Microsoft technologies.
