When organizations move to the cloud, it can be difficult to manage the sheer volume of new tools that come with the transition. In the days when every tool could be hosted on your own server, it was possible to manage all employees and their access to software with one Active Directory or LDAP system. But most cloud applications come with their own set of user credentials.
The management complexity this caused led to the creation of a new type of business: identity providers (IDPs). Identity providers like Okta help bridge the gap between the cloud-based tools their employees use and the employee identity systems IT teams manage.
