A New Breed of Identity Management EmpowerID 2009 features Role Enforcer modules with workflows and web-based interfaces that can be rapidly deployed, including: multi-directory user provisioning (including support for HR, ERP and custom applications); password self-service reset; group management; Active Directory reporting; corporate white pages; Exchange provisioning and security; and SharePoint provisioning and security.
For organizations that desire custom workflows developed to their specific business requirements, EmpowerID 2009 offers a complete workflow automation platform, featuring a modular "drag and drop" visual designer that turns complex tasks into role-based, event-driven workflows. Included "What You See Is What You Get" (WYSIWYG) designers deliver code-free Silverlight and ASP.NET web user interfaces. EmpowerID 2009's job function and location-based role hierarchy reflects changes in an organization immediately and automatically adapts to the changed security requirements. EmpowerID 2009 is a single and unified platform and code base that deploys quickly, cuts costs, and grows easily to accommodate future needs.
"The workflow engine in EmpowerID continues to be exceptional, unlike anything I've seen in other products within this category. It is intrinsically integrated with entitlement management at every step in the way," said Felix Gaehtgens, senior analyst, Kuppinger Cole + Partner. "The Dot Net Factory is quick to point out that this simplifies deployment and rapid prototyping, and that is correct of course - but in our opinion the benefits are even greater after deployment, when business requirements change. That is the time when things have a tendency to get messy, and EmpowerID very elegantly sidesteps many of the problems by allowing changes to be made in any of the layers while keeping the model intact."
"We were able to roll out user provisioning and administration with EmpowerID to a newly acquired company for a large, multinational energy firm in one day. With EmpowerID, we were able to visually map out the business-specific onboarding process as a flexible Windows Workflow with easy-to-use, web-based user interfaces. We have been extremely pleased with the power and ease of deployment that EmpowerID provides," said Ryan Manning, Principal, F-1 Consulting.
"Organizations have wanted a platform that can support their automation, security, and compliance needs without the inflexibility or the high cost associated with custom coded solutions. The visually-designed Business Process Management of EmpowerID 2009 delivers on these needs with a rich set of Identity Management solutions at a very reasonable cost. EmpowerID 2009 offers the rapid return on investment demanded by today's business environment," said Patrick Parker, Chief Executive Officer, The Dot Net Factory.
