The following are ways in which OpenSSO Enterprise identity federation can create a wide variety of new business opportunities for your company.
Creates new revenue streams
Identity federation means being able to create new sources of revenue by quickly meeting customers' ever-growing demand for online services. In addition to applying a standard set of protocols across partner domains, identity federation automates many manual processes within a secure identity framework, helping to deliver revenue-enhancing services to customers more quickly
Improves allocation of resources
Some organizations may want to outsource certain operations so that they can focus their resources on core competencies. Identity federation enables organizations to easily turn over such operations to partners without fear of breaching information security or privacy.
Reduces operational cost and complexity
Identity federation enables organizations to collaborate freely without the cost, complexity, and limitations of compiling and sharing manual lists of users or using proprietary web access management tools. It also makes it easier to ensure the security and privacy of shared information.
Improves user experience
Identity federation promotes loyalty by enabling users such as customers, employees, and suppliers to enjoy more services and products, more quickly and easily than ever before. In particular, single sign-on enables an exceptional online experience, eliminating the need to use multiple passwords for access to online services and products.
Enhances enterprise security
Identity federation enables employees of partner organizations use only one login. When a user has just one password to remember, he or she is less likely to have two write down that password, thus reducing the risk of the password being used by unauthorized entities.
