Identity Management Product Marketing Team
The world (and hence an enterprise) today is very different from what we had say even 5 years ago. Lines between social and professional worlds are blurring fast. I use my smartphone to connect with friends and colleagues, check in on FourSquare for business meetings, follow my friends’ updates on Facebook, check work email, respond to LinkedIn requests from my professional friends and review the .xls sent by my colleague.
The pace of technology evolution is driving the customer expectations today. User experience is key as noted by Naresh Persaud, Director, Security & Identity Management in this screencast. A user needs to be able to sign on using say, the Google account, and use that across all his/her media experience – a smartphone, an iPad, gaining access to business applications, logging on to social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, others.
But so is security. A spate of security incidents in 2012 has, once again, brought the security issues to the fore. Did you know that 76% of mobile applications today store credentials on the device and 10 percent of those store passwords in pain text on the device? With 90% of organizations looking to offer mobile applications by 2014, those are indeed grim statistics. In a world where 62% companies are looking to connect with their customers and build relationships via the social networks, news stories like LinkedIn password hacking definitely make users like you and I pause.
Identity Management is the lynchpin for security and user experience. Breaking away from tradition, the latest release of Oracle Identity Management, 11gR2, marries convenience with security in offering a complete, seamless and secure digital experience to the users.
Focusing on reducing time to deployment and overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and easing the user experience, R2 takes a platform approach to Identity Management bringing innovation, simplification and extreme scale to bear.
Leveraging the innovation in Oracle Fusion Middleware implies Identity R2 utilizes a common, standards-based model for workflow and UI customizations. R2 offers a scalable internet-grade identity platform that leverages ADF for UI customizations and workflow extensibility, SOA for flexibility, on BPM for collaboration and Coherence for extreme performance and WebCenter clustering for scale support.
Learn more about how Oracle Identity Management 11gR2 supports usability and scale requirements and the out-of the-box features that it offers to support the social, cloud and mobile security features.
