Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Deployment Planning Guide

Reducing Operational Inefficiency

Scattered identity data, duplication of identity infrastructure functions across multiple applications, and random security contribute to operational inefficiencies across the enterprise. As companies bring new applications and services online, they often create a separate identity infrastructure for each one. This duplication of effort increases costs, delays time to market, and reduces revenues.

New applications must be able to leverage the identity infrastructure easily and quickly, without affecting how existing services or systems work. As your company delivers new products and services, you can count on OpenSSO Enterprise to update role definitions and access privileges across multiple partners, suppliers, and customers. OpenSSO Enterprise provides an integrated identity management infrastructure solution that delivers economies of scale that lead to better overall operational efficiencies.
