Planning your Identity Manager implementation depends on how you want Identity Manager to manage users and what functionality you need to accomplish your business goals. Consider the following points to help you make decisions:
How do I manage identities.
Do I need automated provisioning.
Which business requirements should I implement using workflow.
The result of your decisions will determine the best way to implement Identity Manager for your requirements.
There are additional tasks that require planning before deploying Identity Manager in a large enterprise. For more information, refer to the Planning section of the NetIQ Identity Manager Overview and Planning Guide.
