Our Case Studies

 

 

​Daiichi Sankyo is a global pharmaceutical company with more than 100 years of scientific expertise, 30,000 employees, and services in more than 50 countries around the world.

The Challenge

Multiple partner SharePoint collaboration sites were needed and Daiichi Sankyo did not want to host the SharePoint portals on premise. Each site required three types of authentication as follows:

    • Windows integrated AD
    • SSO via ADFS
    • and SQL FBA

What We Did

Over the course of a month, five geographic offices were successively stood up and extensively tested. Small variations in firewalls, AD version, and Windows server versions caused many variables that were carefully reviewed and troubleshot. It was an excellent experience to work with so many professionals with different subject matter expertise.

    • ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) is a software component developed by Microsoft that can be installed on Windows Server operating systems to provide users with single sign-on access to systems and applications located across organizational boundaries.
    • SAML token SSO for employees
    • FBA connected to SQL DB to separate partners from Active Directory
    • Windows authentication for administrative users outside of the ADFS domain

The Business Benefits

Users have a seamless single sign-on experience between the internal network and the cloud-based SharePoint solution, and management overhead is minimal as the only maintenance required is a certificate update every few years!

    • Multiple partner extranets now exist using single Sign-on for employees, and authentication for partners is accomplished without being added to Active Directory
