Nuvolex ManageX™ for Education
Managing Multiple SaaS, IaaS and Device Services for Educational Institutions
Educational institutions can now maximize the value of cloud technology that they consume while reducing costs and management complexity. Using the ManageX™ platform’s extensive service automation and streamlined administration, ManageX™ allows you to easily manage the Cloud Services that students, faculty and staff need on a daily basis.
Easily onboard and offboard thousands of students, faculty and staff with simple mouse clicks
Whether your educational institution is on a quarter or semester system, the academic year can have a very disruptive impact on your IT organization. ManageX™ can help you avoid seasonal disruptions, especially around student onboarding and offboarding, allowing your IT staff to deliver a great experience during this critical period of the school year.
With the ManageX™ platform, new user and device provisioning and deprovisioning becomes consistent, highly automated and extremely fast. The platform allows you to easily create user groups as well as customized provisioning policies that automatically assign new students, faculty and staff licenses, attributes, mailbox configurations and groups, as well as provision and configure end user devices. All of this is done with simple mouse clicks.
Easily manage EDUs of any size across SaaS, IaaS and Device Services
Educational institutions can use ManageX™ to simplify administration across their entire Cloud Stack. IT administrators can easily organize EDU tenants into a hierarchy OU structure that represents different school districts, individual schools or even classrooms. The ManageX™ platform can also easily integrate with the OU structure from on-premise identity stores so that you can leverage your existing OU hierarchy across all services that each EDU consumes.
Update license and attributes for thousands of students, faculty and staff with simple mouse clicks
Updating thousands of students or various groups of faculty and staff with changes to licenses and permissions can be an extremely tedious task. In the past, this required the generation of complex PowerShell scripts to bulk update large volumes of users.
IT administrators using the ManageX™ platform no longer need to have deep knowledge of PowerShell. IT administrators now have extensive bulk update capabilities readily available to them requiring no PowerShell scripting. Pushing a bulk update to many thousands of users across Cloud Services is as easy as selecting users, choosing what to update and clicking “submit.” You can change license assignments, mailbox settings, SaaS and Device permissions and configurations for thousands of users in just a handful of clicks.
Delegation of EDU IT administrators
Nuvolex ManageX™ enables educational institutions to delegate access to one or many managed tenants, Cloud Services and even as granular as setting end user access scopes. IT administrators can gain rights to the managed tenants and sets of users they are responsible for while being restricted from accessing any tenants, users or Cloud Services outside of their delegation scope. In this way, ManageX™ helps you enforce consistent and strict privileged access rights for all IT administrators on your team. ManageX™ also takes cloud service Role Based Access Controls a step further. You can specifically define the administrative actions IT administrators are allowed to perform on a function-by-function basis within the platform.
