Sun VirtualBox 3.1 Named 2010 Technology of the Year by InfoWorld

Our VirtualBox team got some very exciting news this week - InfoWorld named Sun VirtualBox 3.1 on their "2010 Technology of the Year" list.

The VirtualBox listing is here (on page 3 of the article).

When I spoke with Andy Hall (senior product manager for VirtualBox) about the award yesterday, he was most impressed by the inclusion of VirtualBox among the other technologies on the list. You can see his blog post here.

Congratulations to the VirtualBox team!

New Sun Identity Management Customer - Express Scripts

The Sun Identity Management team has just posted a new customer success story.

Express Scripts, a Fortune 500 pharmacy benefits management company, is using Sun's Identity Management Portfolio for a centralized identity management solution that automates provisioning for more than 100 systems based on an employee’s job function or operational role. The solution has accelerated provisioning by up to 64% and created a centralized identity directory that maps multiple corporate identities across disparate systems that are each associated with a single employee.

"With Sun Identity Manager and Sun Role Manager, we have significantly improved our operational efficiency and cut costs. We have reduced provisioning from about 14 days down to 5 days. In addition, there are about 1,000 fewer help desk calls per month."
— Matthew Modica, Senior Manager of IT Security, Express Scripts
