Customer

Our customer is a Seattle-based company named SkyKick. Helping IT providers be more successful in the cloud, SkyKick plays an important role in the Microsoft cosmos. Over 20,000 IT partners in over 125 countries are accelerating their cloud businesses with our client SkyKick.

Project

The product is called Cloud Manager and it is intended to facilitate and centralize management of different SaaS cloud subscriptions for small and medium-sized businesses.

Project’s main goal is to automate common IT tasks like on/offboarding users, password resets, and enforcing security policies as well as to facilitate the administration of Microsoft 365, Azure AD, and many other SaaS applications used by clients.

Sigma Software assists SkyKick in delivering their latest innovations. One of the most important parts done by Sigma Software in scope of the whole project – development of so-called Connectors – integration points to 3rd party SaaS applications like Microsoft 365, Dropbox, Slack, WebEx, etc.

The main idea of the new Cloud Manager sub-team called “Content Team” is to have more “out-of-the-box functionality” – the wide range of predefined PowerShell scripts that are actively interacting with Connectors in order to tackle a lot of different, but typical scenarios. The main activities are to create the new PowerShell scripts, update the already existing ones and keep them in up-to-date state.

Solutions developed by this team will address common IT challenges encountered by Cloud Manager users, and be delivered in an opensource-style method, requiring thorough testing and documentation that helps users explain how the PowerShell script works.
