Innovation Awards - Identity Management at Oracle OpenWorld on Tuesday
By Tanu Sood on Oct 04, 2011
One of the most anticipated events at Oracle OpenWorld for Fusion Middleware customers is the Oracle Fusion Middleware Innovation Awards ceremony. Hundreds of nominations come in every year for various product categories and a panel of judges have the unenviable task of selecting the winners - organizations that demonstrate the most innovative, industry-leading, optimal use of Oracle Fusion Middleware solutions.
Maria Forney, Director, Product Management, Oracle Fusion Middleware, would be hosting the ceremony this year that takes place today at 11:45 am Pacific in Moscone West, Room 3007 at Oracle OpenWorld. As we honor this year's most impressive customer projects, here's a quick look back at last year's Innovation Award winners for Identity Management.
NetApp creates storage systems and software that helps customers store, manage, protect, and retain data. NetApp leverages Identity Management to authenticate systems with Oracle Identity Federation, Oracle Access Manager, and Oracle Virtual Directory, as well as provision to SaaS hosted applications. The Identity Management platform and technology allowed NetApp to reduce ETA and helpdesk tickets related to application access.
