Why should you integrate Workplace with an identity management solution?
Implementing Workplace without connecting the tool to the company's existing IT infrastructure forces you to manually administrate users and provide dedicated user support. This increases the load on the IT department. Like with any manually handled process, the risk of human error also increases. For example, users may have access to the tool that should not have it.
If you do not connect the tool to the company's existing login solution, it can create frustration and give a bad user experience which in turn affect the user adoption negatively.
Our bundle is a complete solution for your company
Our bundle combines licenses for both Workplace and Okta, and we help you with the implementation of the identity management solution for Workplace. The solution minimizes administrative effort, streamlines the login process and adds an extra layer of security.
Cloudworks is partner with both Meta and Okta, and our close collaboration ensures you priority. The bundle is a complete solution, and you only need to relate to us as your implementation partner.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Provide access to Workplace based on existing Active Directory (AD) credentials. Okta integrates with your AD without the need for password synchronization.
Additionally, Okta provides self-service password reset functionality with writeback to AD.
Employees who work at the front or for some other reason do not have their own company computer, can be created and maintained directly in Okta. This also saves licensing costs otherwise spent on other user directories.
Okta supports integration with your Active Directory, thereby combining access to Workplace for your frontline workers with your existing users. Okta's delegated administration capabilities enables for example your store managers, to manage access for their employees.
Workplace provides out-of-the-box functionality to automatically add users to groups. Okta enhances this functionality with a powerful rules-engine for almost unlimited rule definitions.
Workplace groups can be based on AD-group membership, rule definitions based on user attribute values or based on Oktas expression language.
The same rules could also leverage group management for other connected SaaS-applications such as MS Office 365 and Google Suite, thereby increasing Return-On-Investment beyond Workplace.
Okta lets you aggregate multiple AD’s or similar directories such as Azure AD, Google and many more, and access the same Workplace instance. This is especially useful for organizations that have grown through acquisitions or due to other reasons have a fragmented AD-, or directory structure.
No need to increase the burden on your IT-staff. Let Okta take care of user provisioning. This ensures that users are provisioned to Workplace in real-time and even more importantly, disabled the very moment they get disabled in AD.
We help you get the maximum out of your investment into Workplace from Meta by giving you access to some of the most experienced product and transformation specialists.
Our consultants have helped numerous organizations both in public and private sector in Norway and abroad, to implement Workplace and help them step up their collaboration capabilities to a new level.
With the identity solution Okta in place, all the companies in Data Respons can collaborate on Workplace from Meta
Data Respons Group wanted the entire organization to use Workplace from Meta after their positive experience with the tool in Norway.
With twelve different companies sharing one Workplace instance and many different solutions for user administration, it was necessary to facilitate a simple and secure login, as well as a powerful solution for identity management.
With a decentralized company structure, it is important for us to have a common communication platform that works across all possible IT systems.
At the same time, we have unavoidable requirements for both high security and a low user threshold. In this context, Workplace is a good and usable platform, but it still requires expertise from an environment like Cloudworks to make everything work seamlessly and be as secure as the bank.

Additional implementation assistance
We have implemented Workplace from Meta for hundreds of thousands of users, and can guide and assist your company throughout the journey of change.
Frontline employees feel connected to the company with Workplace
By combining Workplace from Meta with Okta's identity and access solution, frontline employees in your company will also have a voice, be able to stay up to date, and feel part of the culture also digitally.
Frontline employees work directly with customers and the general public, and usually do not have their own company computer. Therefore, they often do not have access to the company's collaboration tools. This may contribute to this group of employees feeling less connected to the company, and may be one of the reasons for high turnover in such positions.
Lack of identity structure
Companies often struggle to include this group of employees because they lack the identity infrastructure required to effectively manage access for them at an affordable price.
The competence increased and the engagement flourished after implementing Workplace from Meta
