OpenSSO enables 30,000 new Google Apps business users at Valeo

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.

OpenSSO Deployments Around Europe

News from Europe of some interesting OpenSSO deployments... First, in France, Capgemini has been working with Valeo, a major manufacturer of automotive components, to replace a Lotus collaborative platform with Google Apps (plus a set of custom web applications) for over 30,000 employees. If you've been keeping up with Superpatterns, you'll have guessed what they're using to provide Valeo employees with single sign-on across the whole set of web apps... Yep, OpenSSO. This French story gives some more detail [PDF].

A couple of stories came out of Norway last year on their government-to-citizen and government-to-business systems, MinID (My ID) and Altinn respectively. In April, the Norwegian Ministry of Government Administration and Reform published 'Clearing the PIN Code Chaos on Public Web Sites', describing how citizens had to manage a large number of usernames, passwords and PIN's to access Norway's various government department websites. Then in July, Accenture won the contract to implement the next generation of Altinn. The 'eID-interoperability hub' and 'advanced security solution' mentioned in the articles? You guessed it... OpenSSO.
