Proper Identity Access Management (IAM) has become an essential part of an institutional IT infrastructure and joining to a research and education identity federation provides global exposure to the institution and also to the academics/researchers of it. Not only the new services such as video conferencing, cloud services introduced by LEARN but also hundreds of other online services such as well known library services, international laboratory services, educational Microsoft / Google services and new research/fellowship opportunities, could be reach-out by federated identity management.
