Automated user provisioning is one of multiple scenarios included in a more general automated administration system.
Automated user management works by monitoring one or more systems of record and waiting for changes to user profile data. Detected changes are then:

Hitachi ID Identity Manager monitors one or more systems of record, such as HR or a corporate directory, for changes. Events such as hires, moves and terminations are transformed into administrative updates, such as creating new accounts, changing identity attributes or disabling existing accounts and applied to target systems.
Automatic change propagation leverages existing business processes (in HR or payroll for example) to automate predictable systems administration tasks. Automated administration eliminates unnecessary manual work, hastens productivity for new users and ensures that access deactivation is both timely and reliable.
