Since the creation of its open source identity management and governance platform midPoint, Evolveum has always had a strong connection to higher education. Not only midPoint’s feature and connector set appeared to be a great fit for academia needs, it is also Evolveum’s openness, vivid community and rich accessible documentation that played the role in perceiving Evolveum as a trusted and perspective guide on the higher education organizations’ identity journey.
MidPoint’s adaptable and versatile nature makes it an excellent base to build on. That is why joining forces with Internet2’ InCommon initiative of trusted access to resources and becoming part of integrated service and software solution for research and education perfectly aligns with Evolveum’s open source philosophy.
BRATISLAVA, June 8, 2021 – Internet2 is launching the InCommon Catalyst Program made to support higher education institutions, research organizations and sponsored partners.
