IKANO will work with your organization to migrate your existing email boxes into Google Apps Partner Edition and also facilitate ongoing authentication and provisioning into the system. This ongoing provisioning and authentication can be accomplished with three methods based upon customer needs.
Method Number 1 – Google Hosted Authentication
After the completion of your email migration, you will use the IKANO GAPP (Google Authentication and Provisioning Platform) to processes XML provisioning requests such as adds, updates, suspends, and deletes and sends an XML response back indicating the status of the requests. Authentication is handled by Google and all password changes reside with Google database. For customers working on a budget, this method is the most simple and cost efficient.
Method Number 2 – IKANO Hosted Authentication, Provisioning, and User Interface
Using the same GAPP (Google Authentication and Provisioning Platform) to processes XML provisioning requests such as adds, updates, suspends and deletes as in Method Number 1, authentication is handled by IKANO and all password changes reside within IKANO’s database. The method provides:
Method Number 3 – IKANO Hosted Authentication
Method Number 3 communicates directly with your billing platform at your location. Your billing platform sends provisioning requests such as adds, updates, suspends and deletes to the GAPP (Google Authentication and Provisioning Platform). Authentication is handled by IKANO and all password changes reside within our database as well as your database. The method provides:
This method requires the highest amount of integration between IKANO and the customer billing platform but allows full control from your existing billing platform. For our third method, IKANO would provide a custom quote based upon the following criteria.
