IBM® Security Directory Integrator helps you build an authoritative data infrastructure by integrating data from directories, databases, collaborative systems, applications and other data sources.

IBM Security Directory Integrator:

  • Unifies identity silos - into an authoritative identity store with integration templates and tools.
  • Helps solve virtual directory scenarios - with a hybrid approach that simplifies directory migration and coexistence.
  • Provides an open synchronization architecture - that supports multi-vendor IT infrastructures.
  • Reduces cost and improves return on investment - of directory integrations—and helps manage identity infrastructure in private and public clouds.
  • Provides broad support - for platforms, operating systems, protocols and standards.

Unifies identity silos

  • Uses a federated directory server feature to correlate identities and reconcile data.
  • Provides a GUI for configuration, customization and maintenance of synchronization rules—and transforms, moves and synchronizes data.
  • Facilitates data migration and transformation to other file formats and synchronization between two or more systems—and supports scheduled synchronization and event-driven workflows.
  • Creates authoritative data spaces to expose only trustworthy data and offers an operations monitoring administrative console.
  • Provides connectors for rapid integration and enables you to create custom connectors in Java and JavaScript.

Helps solve virtual directory scenarios

  • Creates a centralized data store of silos of data while federating authentication to the original data sources.
  • Meets service level agreements with IBM Security Directory Server as the backbone.

Provides an open synchronization architecture

  • Simpler to deploy and delivers rapid time to value.
  • Scales from small to large deployments.
  • Enables both meta-directory and point-to-point integration.
  • Supports a decentralized architecture, which eliminates deploying and maintaining a centralized, proprietary data store.

Reduces cost and improves return on investment

  • Takes advantage of your existing infrastructure and eliminates the need for additional programming.
  • Provides a white pages application and social networking capabilities.
  • Supports user management in the cloud through a Representational State Transfer (REST).
  • Reads and writes to a system that provides a system for cross domain identity management (SCIM) interface.

Provides broad support

  • Supports IBM AIX®, Microsoft Windows, UNIX and Linux environments.
  • Supports numerous standard protocols, transports, application program interfaces (API) and formats.
  • Integrates with a variety of repositories and technologies.
  • Enables integration with new and existing web services.
