Darmstadt, December 11, 2009 - Multiple login procedures with different user name/password combinations are often productivity-sapping inconvenience for employees. Corporate regulations on password complexity do not provide sufficient security. Users just write down complex passwords instead of memorizing them. Such practices are a great security risk making vital data easily accessible to unauthorized personal. Secure SignOn for Enterprise Single Sign-On (E-SSO) ensures high user acceptance, high user productivity, and efficiency by significantly reducing helpdesk calls and by reducing the time required to login to various business applications. These factors result in a rapid and large Return-on-Investment (ROI) after only a short period of time.

Setting the Driver Straight

I've been working on setting up a new environment for SAP IDM 7.1 SP5 (yes I know 6 is available). This installation is notable for me since I am configuring it around: Windows Server 2008R2 64Bit Microsoft SQL Server 2008R2 64Bit So it's my first pure 64-bit system.  I'm pretty excited. I got the OS installed no problem.  I got SQL installed. (I have to say, 2008R2 is probably the smoothest SQL install I've done since SQL Server 7.  Very much a fan.)

Recently I was asked by a client how we could link two fields together so that for a given value ... (more)
