Register Today For Webinar! Directory Services Improve Time-to-Market and Reduce Cost

"What is old is new again!"  The recent Burton Identity Management Market Profile 2010 which gives a good overview of the current state of the identity management market place also points to the resurgence of activity in directory services as a critical foundation of the identity management foundation.  This is driven by internal and external forces.  Some of these I will cover in our webinar this Thursday, May 27 at 10:00am PT (GMT -8:00).  Register here

Live Webcast: Improve Time-to-Market and Reduce Cost with Oracle Directory Services
Event Date: Thursday, May 27, 2010
Event Time: 10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time / 1:00 Eastern Standard Time

It is my view that a number of the internal forces driving the resurgence in directory services is driven at it's core by companies trying to maximize their IT investment (Doing more with less).  One of the ways companies have worked hard to do more with less is to create a central directory.  There are companies that have achieved success building central LDAP services allowing them control, increased security and reduced cost.   Additionally, this is also driven by organizations as they consolidate assets, move to virtual infrastructures, or reduce footprint to save power and become more "Green" in their business operations.   However, despite the success of some enterprises to create these foundations, the reality is that creating one central directory is very difficult.  This is not because of technical capabilities of directories but more because of business realities.  This is why virtual directories are critical to modern day identity architectures. The power of the virtual directory is also being proven by companies that are pursuing projects that involve federation. 

This is why having a comprehensive set of directory tool's is essential to organizations that want their identity management strategy built upon a sound foundation.  Oracle is uniquely positioned to do this as we are the only company to offer a complete set of directory tools.  We are the only company to offer all of the following in one license:

  • Directory Server 
  • Virtual Directory
  • Directory Integration (Active Directory Synch)
  • Management console
As companies want to reduce the cost of integrating different technologies, managing multiple vendors and hidden costs like training can come to one vendor.
