We started the TIER journey over two years ago through series of galvanizing conversations about gaps between campus needs and what was available in the community to fulfill those needs. We all as investors felt that there was a problem and our shared action was needed to fix it. We initially concentrated on shoring up development efforts for software components. But this is about more than software development. We need to look at the interconnect between the software we use and the services on which we rely. In short, we’re finding that we need to align the visions across Trust and Identity as a whole. It’s not just about creating an integrated software suite. It’s about creating a set of capabilities that enable trust and identity services across our community.
