In 2012, we were allowed to develop a new software for a major international company. The goal of this software was to automate management functions in the area of Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange. We had already informed ourselves about service-oriented architectures in the previous months. Based on the knowledge gained, we decided not to develop the desired software as a whole, but to distribute it across various web services.
Meanwhile, the term Microservices, which pretty much covers what we had implemented with our WCF Services, had spread.
We are convinced of Microservices and therefore decided to develop our Identity and Access Management solution based on this technology.
For many companies, taking on a new employee is a challenge: all the necessary resources such as workplace, computer, badge, etc. must be available on time. In addition, the corresponding authorizations and accesses must be set up correctly so that the employee can work productively immediately. The new employee is often busy getting all the necessary resources and access through his or her supervisor, the IT manager or the HR department.
With our Identity and Access Management solution waave you achieve a smooth onboarding process. Thanks to the automation of important processes, many tasks of the onboarding to do list are reliably completed. Thus all accounts and access rights to the necessary systems are active on the first working day and resources such as computers, badges, etc. are ready for the new employee - he can immediately work productively.
Our team continues to grow - we are happy that Razoon AG will now be supported by the know-how and experience of Corina Köchli and Roger Merz. Corina Köchli is responsible for expanding and strengthening our social media presence. Roger Merz attends the apprenticeship as a computer scientist application development at the ZLI Zürcher Lehrbetriebsverband ICT. As part of his apprenticeship, he completes his internship at Razoon AG and supports our development team.
The Razoon team welcomes Corina Köchli and Roger Merz!
Immediately we realized that this represents a huge expansion for processes and the connection of target systems. With Flow, a workflow can be "clicked together" without the need for special software development skills. A connection to target systems can be implemented very easily. The number of integration possibilities is huge, see Connectors.
Within a very short time, we developed a waave Connector for Flow and Logic Apps. waave can now start a Flow or Logic Apps while processing a process so that the corresponding actions are executed.
Here are some examples of how to use Flow in an onboarding or offboarding process:
Make an Office 365 or Google calendar entry for the supervisor
Include the new employee in the MailChimp newsletter distribution list
Inform employees about the new entry with Slack or Microsoft Teams
Create a file with data of the employee on SharePoint
