Advanced campus identity technologies are becoming available at an unprecedented speed. New credential types including mobile, biometrics, contactless credentials, and cloud-based solutions can provide increased safety and enhanced student engagement across your campus. Universities are complex ecosystems comprised of both independent and integrated systems that provide everyday campus services. These systems use many types of identifiers, along with a variety of backend systems that manage them. It’s important that these technologies and business practices align to provide an efficient delivery of services. The ability to unify and integrate existing campus services and successfully fold in emerging technologies is key to successfully enhancing services and safety.
In this webinar, attendees will learn
- What is a Campus Identity Roadmap and why does your campus need one
- How to create a unique Campus Identity Roadmap for your campus
- How to establish identity industry best practices and emerging trends.
