New to IDR implementation
We are thinking of going to RSA clould with our on-prem Auth manager. we are pretty much thinking of setting this from scratch. Any suggestion/recommendation/best practices would really help.

Hi Deb - I would suggest taking a look at Getting started with the RSA SecurID Access Cloud Authentication Service.
Lots of pointers to planning docs and link to contact RSA Sales.
Good luck with your deployment,
To add to Ted's comments - it isn't an either/or proposition - you can add the cloud services alongside RSA Authentication Manager and start piloting new features. The combination of the cloud services and RSA Authentication Manager allows you to protect just about anything. I would certainly start at a very high level and define
- How many users and what type?
- What do you want to connect to?
- What authentication factors do you want to use? i.e. ease of convenience push notification or do you also need some users to stay with hardware tokens?
From there it is just a matter of defining what use cases you want to target and start exploring what those implementation options look like with the new services. The cloud service components are all subscription based so you can start with a small deployment and then transition additional users.
Hope that helps. Great question.
Thanks Nathan.. The main purpose for us is to integrate with SaaS offerings such as O365.
we currently server approx 10k users with our on-prem Authentication manager and we are planning to add more user soon as part of cloud migration. At this stage there will be combination of users (hardware, Software & SMS : Which we currently use) and to use RSA cloud capability like push notification etc.. But just answer your question:
There is lot to read/follow in RSA sites, am bit of confused. Any help would be appreciated.
I created a few videos on the IDR take a look this would be a great place to start:

If you have authentication manager 8.3 you can connect the Cloud Authentication Console to your authentication manager.
I hope this helps you with your deployment.
