Deconstruction of a Classic Microsoft Identity Manager Solution (course A980)

1-Day Course


This is a one-day educational tear down of a classic Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) based identity management solution. This is performed for customers who have deployed Identity Panel and operationally, MIM DevTest, and want a complete understanding of their MIM and identity management solution or prepare to migrate to HyperSync. This is similar to course A981, which is a Deconstruction of a Modern Microsoft Identity Manager solution that uses the latest techniques, tools, and software.

This course is included with the SoftwareIDM Operational Services for Microsoft Identity Manager.


Audience Type 1: Audit and document. This course is provided to customers who want their solution deconstructed for their identity management team. . It is an ideal method for teaching the staff how their MIM solution is architect-ed and developed. It also part of a full audit of an existing MIM solution.

Audience Type 2: This course is provided to companies and professionals who want to deconstruct and then properly assembled but complex model Microsoft Identity Management or HyperSync solution using SoftwareIDM tools and software.

Delivered Securely

We train companies and governments on their custom MIM solution built using C#, VB, Portal Rules, third party ECMA/ECMA2, and third party scripts and add-ins. When course A980 is applied to a specific customer solution, the course is delivered securely, with only the customer and approved third parties present (ie. their integrator or consultants).


Too many companies run a highly complex identity lifecycle systems, but lack the internal knowledge to full support and develop the solution. Even a third party can’t help, if they don’t know solution any better then the customer. That is where SoftwareIDM comes in. By deconstructing your solution in a classroom, students learn not on the underlying technology, but how it is configured and operating at you organization. By creating reviewing the new test cases that valid the logic of the solution, student have the initial tools to make changes to their production MIM.

Organizations can also learn from our learning lab tear-down systems. These are MIM solutions modeled after other organization like yours, that are classic MIM architecture and development methods. These lessons allow students to understand further how MIM operates security and quickly in the real world. Each student will walk away with improvement they can make to their own customers or employers MIM solution.

Companies financially benefit when employees understand the systems they are supporting. We are often asked to quantify this amount. We have observed that a well informed team can be 30% more productive or better. For a trained three person team, at $200K total cost per team member per year, is $180K.
