Centrica drives down operational cost by implementing Single Sign On using Oracle IDM

Centrica Plc is an integrated energy company operating in 7 countries including the U.K. and U.S. that supplies electricity and gas for 30 million consumer and business customers.

In an effort to drive down operational costs due to password resets for their critical business applications, Centrica engaged aurionPro SENA to help them explore the most cost effective options.

The project goals were to:

  • simplify user log on to SAP
  • reduce the number of passwords
  • automate password resets
  • reduce the number of help desk calls (related to password issues)

To find out more about the Enterprise Single Sign on system designed and implemented for this project, join us on April 25, 2013 @ 10:00 am PST for a webcast featuring Chris Wilton, Senior Project Manager at Centrica, Ben Bulpett, Alliances and Enterprise Account Director at aurionPro SENA, and myself (Darin Pendergraft, Product Marketing, Oracle)

We will discuss the project and will have an opportunity for live Q&A.
