A leading retail pharmacy saved more than 50% of operational effort and cost by consolidating legacy directories into Ping directory.
LDAP directories had proliferated within the pharmacy’s security infrastructure over the years which led to significant operational and cost overhead. There was a need to consolidate and centralize the user identities into one directory to streamline operations and costs.
Persistent assessed the state of LDAP directories at the pharmacy and came up with a roadmap for directory consolidation.
Persistent outlined a multi-step phased approach to consolidate directories. The first step involved creation of a new LDAP (Ping Directory) infrastructure to establish co-existence with existing LDAP directories.
Next, Persistent established migration and onboarding process for applications and onboard pilot applications. The final step was decommissioning of legacy LDAP directories.
The decommissioning of legacy LDAP directories and unification of user identities and applications into a central Ping Directory infrastructure resulted in 50% savings in terms of cost and operational overhead.
