Conformity: With the growing popularity of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), many enterprises are finding that they have separate user authentication procedures for each application.

- Creating normalized role and profile models across AD and SaaS
- Leveraging those models to integrate AD with SaaS deployments
- Automating user provisioning and administration processes
