A Virtual Fireside hosted by Strata Chat with Kroger and Microsoft: Explore the Challenges and Best Practices for Modernizing Identity Management when Moving Applications to the Cloud

BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Strata Identity, the distributed, multi-cloud identity orchestration company, today announced it will host a free webinar featuring supermarket giant Kroger and Microsoft entitled Frozen Peas, Identity Management & the Path to Modernization on October 7th.

WHO: Panelists:
Rob Lenhof – Corporate Information Security Technology Manager, Kroger
Stefan van der Wiele – Senior Program Manager, Azure Active Directory at Microsoft

Moderator: Mark Callahan, Senior Director – Product Marketing, Strata Identity

WHAT: Moving food and other essentials from factory to table involves many steps and moving parts. And each step requires people and applications to get the job done, all of which rely on identity and access management to provide security and eliminate friction.

Given the time, costs, and business disruption impacts, this wasn’t an option. In this session Rob Lenhof and Stefan van der Wiele will explain how Kroger migrated its applications to Microsoft Azure AD without re-writing them while enabling incompatible legacy and cloud identity systems to interoperate. Attendees will learn:

Strata’s distributed approach to identity enables organizations to break decades-old vendor lock-in, preventing a broader transition of enterprise workloads to the public cloud.
