|Edmonton and Munich, May 31, 2010 – At the beginning of May, Canadian software vendor, Omni (www.omni-ts.com), announced the latest version of its Identity Management software, eControl, with many new and advanced features. Now, Omni is offering education customers globally the opportunity to license eControl for only the cost of support – a 70% savings on the already discounted education pricing. This eControl promotion is available to universities, colleges and schools until August 31st.|
At the beginning and of each school year or term, education environments need to bulk create and delete user accounts based on information from their student information system. During the school year, there is also a constant intake of new students and staff and these accounts need to be provisioned and managed. eControl simplifies the user account management and provisioning lifecycle by enabling education customers to quickly and easily delegate user account management and creation tasks to help desk operators, junior administrators, office staff and teachers – with no administrator rights or special permissions required and no access to complex administration tools such as Microsoft Management Console, Task Pads, ConsoleOne or iManager.
Within 20 minutes, a non-technical user can be trained to use eControl to reset user passwords, enable and disable accounts, add or remove users from groups and email distribution lists, release intruder lockout, update directory attributes and many other tasks. Administrators can restrict the tasks and search contexts assigned to each user.
With eControl's multi-system create profiles, a help desk operator or office clerk can fill out a single web-based form and automatically create a user account and information in multiple systems. For example, eControl is ideal for schools that need a simpler and automated way to provision an Active Directory account, Exchange mailbox, user home directory, and write information to a SQL database application from a single eControl Account Create profile. In addition, the eControl web portal is fully audited and improves security and compliance.
"Identity management is very complex in large education environments," said Trevor Poapst, Director of Global Marketing for Omni. "This global eControl education promotion will enable universities and K-12 school districts to experience a much simpler and more affordable way to bulk create user accounts and manage them during the school year. eControl frees senior IT resources to focus on high-level, strategic projects and allows routine management and provisioning tasks to be delegated securely to help desk and office staff."
eControl's intuitive, point-and-click Web 2.0 interface allows users to get started quickly with very little or no training required. Because only a browser is required to manage user identities with eControl, administrators can make changes while off-site, help desk staff can login from any PC or Mac and make changes, and end-users are able to reset their own password and update their contact information if the administrator wishes. eControl improves help desk productivity. It delivers software-as-a-service, user account management and provisioning from any place and at any time with only a standard Internet browser.
