Sun Identity Manager Customers can Upgrade to Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite at No Cost

November 9, 2010 -- Calgary, Canada -- Hitachi ID Systems, a leading developer of Identity and Access Management solutions, announced today a competitive upgrade program for Oracle Waveset (formerly Sun Identity Manager) customers.

For a limited time, Hitachi ID Systems is offering free software licenses, discovery services and project scoping services to customers who wish to migrate their user provisioning and/or password management system to Hitachi ID Identity Manager and Hitachi ID Password Manager.
