M-Tech Announces the Release of ID-Org
ID-Org to Address Inaccurate and Incomplete Data on Organizational Structure Required by Enterprise Identity Management Systems
Gartner Symposium ITxpo, San Francisco, California - May 17, 2005 - M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leading provider of identity management solutions, today announced that the beta release of ID-Org, M-Tech's OrgChart management solution, will be available for evaluation in June 2005.
ID-Org complements user provisioning and access certification functions in Hitachi ID Management Suite by making it easier for enterprises to build and maintain accurate and complete information on employee reporting lines within the organization.
Enterprise identity management systems depend heavily on accurate information on organizational reporting lines known as OrgChart data. OrgChart data is used to route security change requests to appropriate authorizers, to find alternate authorizers when escalation is required and to identify which managers are required to review and certify user access rights.
In most organizations, OrgChart data resides within a human resources (HR) system. In some organizations, this data is unavailable while in others it is inaccurate or incomplete. In most cases, OrgChart data for contractors, vendors and those external to the organization is not available.
ID-Org addresses the need for complete and accurate OrgChart data required by identity management systems including M-Tech's ID-Synch User Provisioning and ID-Certify Access Compliance solutions.
ID-Org builds on existing organizational chart data by prompting managers to periodically identify their subordinates. This process enables organizations to quickly and regularly populate missing organizational information and to correct errors and omissions. Updated data compiled by ID-Org can be automatically fed into a corporate directory.
"Our user provisioning deployment experience has taught us that OrgChart data is indispensable yet it is often missing, incomplete or unreliable. Manual completion and validation of OrgChart data delays the deployment of user provisioning and access certification solutions thereby impacting the project cost and schedule. ID-Org enables our customers to speed up the deployment of user provisioning systems, without having to contract out a large, expensive and lengthy data cleansing project," says Idan Shoham, M-Tech CTO.
"Organizational charts frequently drive the implementation of identity management solutions, and rightfully so given the explicit relationships intrinsic in these models. However, most organizational charts are static, almost 'dead' documents, creating extensive unchecked holes in the identity data, and undermine the reusability and relevance of this data for identity management purposes," said Dan Keldsen, Senior Analyst/Consultant with Delphi Group (www.delphigroup.com), a Perot Systems company.
"Static organizational data will shortly be a thing of the past, or these solutions will not be worth having, and will in fact be crippling liabilities rather than strengths," adds Keldsen.
