Rapid ROI with Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite
By B Shashikumar on Oct 17, 2011
We live in interesting economic times. The housing market has been in a slump for several years now. If you are going into invest in a property today purely for rental purposes, then most likely you will look at how quickly you can break even. I recently read somewhere that the historical price to rent ratio for most housing markets in the continental states is around 15. The price to rent ratio is the price paid for a property divided by the annual rent on the property. So in other words, it takes about 15 years on a historical average basis to break even on an investment in rental property. That’s a long time I would say, don’t you agree?
However, our Oracle Identity Management solutions are designed to offer extremely quick Return on Investment (ROI) to our customers. Let’s take the example of Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On (ESSO) Suite Plus. Oracle ESSO overcomes the huge burden of productivity losses and helpdesk costs incurred from forgotten passwords. In addition to that, we offer one more compelling reason for our customers to invest in Oracle ESSO. That is its rapid ROI.
Let’s take the example of an organization with about 7000 users where strong password policies are enforced. In many organizations, users are required to change their application passwords frequently (about once a quarter is not uncommon). An average helpdesk call associated with a password reset can cost $40. If such an organization deploys Oracle ESSO, they can eliminate their password headaches and overcome productivity losses that forgotten passwords can inflict. In addition to all that, Oracle ESSO delivers an ROI of 140% within the first 12 months of deployment. In other words, the organization can recover their investment and save additionally with the first year. And within the first five years, Oracle ESSO can save nearly $5 million in costs. Now that’s a very compelling investment.
