OCG offers solutions that include directory integration, identity lifecycle management, device management, access governance, and data protection. “We help our customers benefit from these solutions, while staying in control of their assets– and we do so cost-effectively,” says Simpson-Wells. “Some customers come to us via one of our training courses, but a consulting engagement usually starts with an envisioning workshop that includes a strategic review: evaluating existing architecture and procedures and building recommendations for action. We design, develop and deploy solutions focusing on business value using our proven methodology, best practices, and a unique library of code and solution accelerators refined over the course of 700+ projects.”
“Successful enterprise mobility solutions must start with a strategic approach to managing devices, user identity, and data protection, which is imperative for user nimbleness and safety. We’ll make all the moving parts interact seamlessly across an enterprise, which at an organizational level drives tremendous efficiencies.
As an example of an OCG solution, consider a large construction firm based in Chicago. OCG worked with the customer to build strategies to accommodate the proliferation of employee-owned devices used at all of their job sites across the U.S. by both employees and contractors. By implementing Microsoft’s EMS, Windows, Apple and Android devices could access and share data effectively and securely. “The more employees can use their devices to access and share corporate resources from anywhere at any time, the more productive they can become,” says Simpson-Wells. “And in a dynamic environment, where partners and contractors are project based, provisioning and de-provisioning becomes fast, accurate and cost-effective.”
“We are a knowledge-based company and our heritage is that we have been focused entirely on identity management for over a decade,” reveals Simpson-Wells. The company has implemented hundreds of identity solutions for customers using Microsoft Active Directory and other identity repositories. OCG also offers comprehensive training courses updated to keep up with the emerging technical components, making them unique in the market and allowing their customers to keep their solutions up to date.

Going forward, the company plans to grow together with cloud and enterprise mobility. “We continue to evolve our offerings to help more organizations reap the benefits of the cloud identity revolution,” concludes Simpson-Wells
