OpenSSO enables 30,000 new Google Apps business users at Valeo
By superpat on Jun 11, 2009
Among the OpenSSO-related news items that popped up while I had my head down over the past few weeks, I noticed the Google Blog entry and Valeo press release concerning the global industrial group's Google Apps deployment - 30,000 Valeo employees now have access to a new communication and collaborative working platform based on Google Apps Premier Edition and supported by Capgemini, one of the largest enterprise deployments of Google Apps to date.
It's not mentioned in either story, but, if you a regular reader of Superpatterns, you'll already know that Capgemini deployed OpenSSO at Valeo to handle single sign-on, allowing Valeo employees to access their email at Google via their Valeo credentials, without having to manage a separate Google username/password.
If you're looking at Google Apps, click here to download the 'starter kit' we recently produced, which explains exactly how to set up single sign-on to Google Apps using OpenSSO.
