Open Integration Incorporated Executive to Deliver Identity Service Management Seminar at JA-SIG Summer 2007 Conference

Function Provides Automatic Updating & Synchronization of Records/Information Between Enterprise Applications

CHAMPAIGN, IL--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - Open Integration Incorporated, the leading developer and provider of open source enterprise integration products and services based on the OpenEAI platform, today announced that Senior Technology Architect Stephen Wheat will provide a technical presentation on the subject of Identity Service Management at the JA-SIG Summer 2007 Conference being held in Denver, Colorado this June 24-27, 2007. The presentation will show attendees how to incorporate an identity service in the OpenEAI open source Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) using the OpenEAI Sample Enterprise. An identity service is used to automatically keep information, records, and "identities" in sync and updated between applications such as uPortal, CAS, Sakai, LDAP, and others. Without an identity service, IT personnel, and administrators spend valuable time manually synchronizing and updating information.

Open Integration, Inc. Presentation Details - JA-SIG Summer 2007 Conference
Track:      Addressing the Enterprise, Monday, June 25, 2007 4:45PM-5:45PM
Title:      "Multiple Personality Disorder in the Enterprise"
Presenters: Tom Cervenka, Senior Developer Enterprise Architecture,
            University of Illinois
            Stephen Wheat, President, Open Integration Incorporated

Abstract: The presenters will demonstrate the incorporation of an Identity
Service in the OpenEAI Sample Enterprise and show how its various
applications and services -- Sakai, uPortal, CAS, and LDAP -- can be kept
in sync.
If your enterprise has more than one application or service, then chances are that within these records there exist numerous individuals, each one possessing two or more distinct identities or personalities, each with its own pattern of perceiving and interacting with the environment. Unfortunately, this is true for most of us. Multiple identities for each and every employee and customer are maintained, involuntarily, because our applications and services are not wired to stay in sync. This makes it hard to update basic information -- such as a person's name -- and a lot of valuable time and money is spent manually syncing applications and services.

The development, availability, and evolution of Open Source Enterprise Application Integration Software is important to IT Managers of large enterprises made up of many systems and allows them to develop and implement an integration strategy that is driven by the needs of the enterprise instead of the desires of the vendors.
