IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials v8.0 (with Accelerator Pack)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to implement and configure common IdentityIQ use cases and to support a standard implementation of IdentityIQ. Using Accelerator Pack, students learn best practices for onboarding and configuring application interactions (for example joiner/mover/leaver, and access requests). Students will also be able to describe, configure and administer the standard ongoing processes to load and maintain the IdentityIQ data, and list and use the tools available for monitoring and troubleshooting the system.
IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials is led by our highly experienced training team and takes place on-line using remote conferencing technology.
For self-paced training, see IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials v8.0 - ELEARNING.
Note: This course teaches Accelerator Pack. If your installation uses Rapid Setup, we recommend that you take IdentityIQ Implementation and Administration: Essentials v8.1. (Accelerator Pack and Rapid Setup are both configuration aids.)

What's the difference between this class and previous versions of IdentityIQ Implementation: Essentials classes?
This course is a complete rewrite to accommodate:
- New audience. This course still targets the implementation team (technical staff, business administrators, project managers, etc.) and now also targets system administrators -- those folks who monitor and support the production system.
- Accelerator Pack. Accelerator Pack provides many additional "out of the box" features that significantly simplify configuration and reduce time to go-live.
Note that to accommodate new content, a lot of content has been rearranged and moved out of this course. For example, this course now briefly introduces certifications, roles, and policy and how they work within the system, and leverages rules and workflows throughout, but detailed configuration and creation for these topics is covered in separate courses.
Where to find training for relocated topics:

this is very good training to discover SailPoint IdentityIQ. this course covered all my expectations about the solution from a functional and technical point of view.
The training gives a good understanding of various features of IIQ.
The instructor was very knowledgeable about IdentityIQ and kept the entire class involved throughout the week even though we were all working remotely. Excellent training experience!
I benefited this course well. it is definitely the training to start to support SailPoint Identity IQ as it bring structure to your understand of the tool.
