ECCO Wins Award at Kuppinger Cole’s 2009 Munich-Based ‘European Identity Conference’ in the Category ‘Best Internal IAM/GRC Project’
May 2009 - The European Identity Award in the category ‘Best Internal IAM/GRC project’ was conferred on ECCO Sko A/S, a global leader in innovative comfort footwear, for their use of the Omada Identity Manager solution. The award cites the way in which ECCO has grown beyond common identity management boundaries with their Omada Identity Manager solution and recognizes them for the way they see Identity Management in the broader picture as a way to create real value for the business including Lifecycle and License Management.
During the event ECCO’s Lise Støy Rodil presented their case in a staged session explaining that the scope of the ECCO project was framed within the classic scope of an IDM project but adding that they included business needs such as ordering and returning a PC, requesting a software license, etc. Furthermore, a web shop user interface was used as the front end, to facilitate end user adoption and for administrators to be able to manage the infrastructure in a very intuitive and effective way. Lise acknowledged this project really demonstrates that Identity Management is more than just an infrastructure niche offering, and that it is really an integrated part of the overall business infrastructure, making the life of administrators much easier and end users more effective.
