Webcast: Sun2Oracle: Upgrading from DSEE to the next generation Oracle Unified Directory

Interested in upgrading from DSEE to OUD?

Register to learn from one customer.

Oracle Corporation
Oracle Security Solutions
We can improve our security and compliance,
at the same time we’re cutting costs and complexity.

Sun2Oracle: Upgrading from DSEE to the next generation Oracle Unified Directory

Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) is the world’s first unified directory solution with highly integrated storage, synchronization, and proxy capabilities. These capabilities help meet the evolving needs of enterprise architectures. OUD customers can lower the cost of administration and ownership by maintaining a single directory for all of their enterprise needs, while also simplifying their enterprise architecture.

OUD is optimized for mobile and cloud computing environments where elastic scalability becomes critical as service providers need a solution that can scale by dynamically adding more directory instances without re-architecting their solutions to support exponential business growth.

Join us for this webcast and you will:

  • Learn from one customer that has successfully upgraded to the new platform
  • See what technology and business drivers influenced the upgrade
  • Hear about the benefits of OUD’s elastic scalability and unparalleled performance
  • Get additional information and resources for planning an upgrade

Register for Free Webinar: Neil Gandhi on Identity Analytics ROI

Is your Identity Compliance project a GIANT Headache?  If so, then we have the little blue pill for your  compliance headache.  The reason why many organizations experience pain in the compliance programs they run is because of the lack of automated tools, impact to productivity and lack of ongoing actionable information.  I have seen this first hand.   Organizations usually rely upon project managers and excel spreadsheets collect information from business units and project teams.  This then leads to massive efforts to fill in information and send them back to the central team for documentation and reporting to the auditors.  Ultimately, this information is old before it is collated into the binders and the report is issued.  However, the real result is usually a GIANT HEADACHE for everyone involved.

As Identity theft outpaces any other theft and security challenges for organizations, the problem needs a more efficient solution with better processes and better tools.  Business leaders will believe in investment when they can see better utilization of key resources, better on-going information, proven segregation of duties, and ultimately better security. 

Niel Gandhi, has the "Advil" for your compliance headache with Oracle Identity Analytics.  Register here for the FREE webinar on the ROI of using Identity Analytics.  He is has years of experience solving these problems for organizations around the world.  Additionally, he has extensive experience as Principal Product Manager, Identity Analytics.  Here are a couple of the topics that he will cover in the event:

  • Automate critical identity-based controls such as attestation and segregation of duties
  • Analyze, mine, and correlate user roles for compliant and efficient user access
  • Build comprehensive reports for audit, compliance, and business purposes
  • Utilize business-friendly compliance dashboards and metrics
  • Give a 360-degree view of user’s access and achieve rapid compliance

However, the ultimate goal of his presentation is to make sure you have concrete ways to help you solve your Compliance Headache without breaking the bank.  Hope to see you there!
