What is PIM?

Privileged Identity Management (PIM) provides oversight of private accounts. PIM users are able to access the admin backend of a system and delete data or change settings. School administrators can gain unlimited PIM role flexibility through the Cloudwork Dashboard, which allows them to grant access and change settings for specific users and different school groups on a carefully-defined and granular basis.

"I've played around with the new PIM admin roles functionality ... I wanted to say that you've done a fantastic job, and it works much better than I imagined it would. I think it will suit what we have in mind perfectly – the 'additive' permissions per org unit are perfect. Thank you for your hard work!" Cameron Munro, ILT Manager, Methodist Ladies College, Claremont WA, April 2018

Community Parents Privacy Services

Welcome to Cloudwork

Cloudwork is an automated system of identity access management which securely integrates most standard education applications. Privacy has always been a priority in Cloudwork's design, so it helps schools meet their privacy obligations from the ground up. Cloudwork also enhances school communities, with features to benefit all aspects of school life for students, parents, teachers, and IT staff.
  • Cloudwork displays the school's own branding rather than a provider's.
  • Accounts for parents are easily set up and managed separately.
  • Single sign-on access to education apps makes student learning simpler.
  • Network updates are automated, but still remain under IT staff control.
