BURLINGTON, ON, May 23, 2012 /CNW/ - N8 Identity, Canada's leading dedicated identity and access management (IAM) solution provider, announced today that its long-standing relationship with OMERS has been expanded to include the overall strategic management of its enterprise IAM framework.
OMERS is one of Canada's largest pension plans, managing $55 billion in net assets on behalf of 420,000 pension plan members.
N8 Identity was first selected by OMERS in 2008 to implement and manage their enterprise IAM framework servicing employees, external stakeholders, investment partners and external pension plan members. This engagement has evolved over the years to include strategic oversight, architecture design, and the development of a federation model to extend business services to partners.
"OMERS looks to N8 Identity to provide guidance and thought leadership into our IAM strategic direction," said Zbigniew Duszak, Vice President, IT Services at OMERS. "The IAM efficiencies identified, implemented and supported by N8 Identity have resulted in significant cost savings for our organization. For example, more than 65,000 active pension plan members and retirees now access web services for information previously provided through traditional mail or phone methods. Looking ahead, I am confident that N8 Identity will continue to help OMERS identify significant opportunities for continuous improvement in the areas of collaboration with external partners and service availability."
N8 Identity's Professional Services team assists organizations at each step of the IAM process: business case development, product selection, implementation, and product deployment. N8 Identity consultants ensure clients meet their unique security and compliance objectives using the industry's best-of-breed products to address both technical and business requirements. More information on N8 Identity's proven professional services methodology can be found on the company website: www.n8id.com
"N8 Identity appreciates the confidence OMERS has shown in our company over the years," said Jay O'Donnell, President & CEO. "We remain committed to rewarding OMERS' trust by delivering measurable business value across every milestone on their IAM roadmap."
