As businesses grow, both in the number of employees and locations, it becomes increasingly important to encourage better communication and collaboration between colleagues, regardless of whether they are in the same office, remote working or on the other side of the world.
This means that being able to quickly and easily find any colleague’s contact details, from the Junior starter on their first day to the CEO based on another continent, is essential. And, for this, you would need a database that is automatically updated as employees are onboarded and offboarded.
Okta have such a database - the Okta Universal Directory. Unfortunately, there was no method for Okta users to natively access this wealth of information, and they realised that this was becoming a problem for some of their customers.
That is why CloudM have partnered with Okta to develop the CloudM People Finder - a free, standalone application, available to Okta administrators to install from the Okta Integration Network, that allows any Okta user to search for people across their organization, using information stored within the Okta Universal Directory (UD).
Additionally, as users need to login and authenticate through Okta, you can be safe in the knowledge that your employee contact details can only be accessed by members of your organization.
CloudM and Okta have a long and successful history of collaborating and using each other’s products. This includes CloudM adding deep integration with Okta to our product suite that allows for seamless and synchronized onboarding and offboarding of employees. Benefits include minimizing manual tasks, increasing security and helping to control your license costs. For more information on how we integrate with Okta, please click here.
