Legacy to Modern: Replacing Legacy Identity at PG&E
“This is one of the most impressive projects that I’ve seen in a very long time. Replacing Oracle and successfully migrating to a modern Identity platform is no small feat, but PG&E, Integral and SailPoint worked as a team.” – Harry Gould, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Alliances and Channels, SailPoint
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is one of the largest combined natural gas and electric energy companies in the United States. With over 50 thousand employees and contractors operating in a heavily regulated industry, PG&E’s identity security program truly does it all, covering a vast number of identity governance and administration use cases.
Driven by challenges that included high development costs, poor user experience, and performance issues from their legacy identity implementation, PG&E sought out to replace their incumbent solutions with something more modern, flexible, and innovative. Over only an eleven-month timeframe, PG&E was able to successfully replace a very large and complex Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) implementation and other tools with SailPoint’s Identity Security Platform, built on AI and machine learning. The PG&E team worked very closely with Integral Partners to help them unwind and replace OIM.
PG&E achieved many benefits with the replacement, some of which include a simplified access review process, faster performance overall, and new password functionality that immediately produced cost savings for the organization. And it was a big win for PG&E to shrink their technology portfolio and replace failed tools.
