Avatier Identity Management and Cherwell Software Strategic Alliance Makes ITSM and Enterprise Cloud Computing Better

Avatier announces a Strategic Alliance Partnership with Cherwell Software.

Today, at the Cherwell Global Conference, we announced an incredible partnership with Cherwell Software™, a leading IT Service Management (ITSM) vendor, business and workforce enablement system. Our strategic alliance partnership with Cherwell ensures best practices are utilized in the design and implementation of the integration of the Avatier Identity Management System (AIMS) with Cherwell Software’s on-premises and hosted ITSM solutions. Additionally with the partnership, Avatier and Cherwell Software plan to actively promote each other’s complimentary on-premises and cloud-based solutions to customers.

Using AIMS for access management to a Cherwell on-premise or cloud service, business and IT users alike can initiate password management, single sign-on, and user account management requests. In our current AIMS release, we added the ability to create and manage Cherwell Software users. We also included a connector for Cherwell Service Management® ticketing and user management integration. Through our partnership and technology integration AIMS now provides secure bi-directional user management operability, ticketing and reporting with the Cherwell Service Management platform.
