Aegis Identity celebrated our third anniversary in October, 2014. The goal of the company at its inception was to change the paradigm of identity management solutions for education.
In the past education institutions and clients were dependent on solutions providers and professional services organizations to sustain their identity management infrastructures. Aegis Identity’s focus was to provide contemporary identity management solutions through strong and collaborative client partnerships supporting client independence from vendors.
What makes for a strong client partnership? Listening to and understanding your clients objectives is the first step in building a lasting business relationship. Aegis Identity is unique with our 100% focus on identity management solutions and our sole focus on education. As a result, we are able to respond to our client’s needs with meaningful solutions targeted at their unique education requirements.
Additionally, the business model we have created is highly collaborative centered around our client objectives. The company’s goal is to work with our customers to position them to independently sustain their identity management infrastructure after the initial phase of their project. The end result for the client is reduced cost, a stronger return on their investment and the ongoing ability to sustain their infrastructure.
Finally, the understanding of the education market was the catalyst in establishing a software license model which supports the dynamics of the clients constituent population. This is a different approach than fitting a commercial oriented product into an education institution.
The success of the company to date is a result of a few key areas:
A commitment to education and identity management.
A clear understanding of our client’s requirements.
Listening and responding to these unique needs.
A business model designed to support collaboration and partnership.
Operating with the philosophy of “Your success is our success” is the underpinning to Aegis Identity’s continued growth and strong market presence. 2015 will be a great year for Aegis Identity.
