DETROIT, May 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, today announced that its Chief Security Officer, Dave Miller, will speak on three panel discussions at the European Identity Conference 2010, which begins today in Munich. In Miller's sessions, titled: Identity Management as a Service: Lessons Learned in Real World Implementations, Service Oriented Identity and Managing Identities Along Supply Chains, the Covisint CSO will articulate how organizations can successfully overcome identity management challenges today and in the future.

Miller will provide expert commentary on how organizations merge the concepts of identity management and cloud computing, forming a new category called identity management as a service (IdMaaS). IdMaaS, he will show, enables federated identities and end-to-end identity management, facilitating access to important business applications both within and across enterprise boundaries. Miller also will speak on:

  • how IdMaaS results in the automation of organizational processes, improved policy compliance and reduced complexity;
  • end-point integration methods;
  • how provisioning in the cloud is sold internally;
  • how IdMaaS supports the SaaS employee model;
  • how federated identity and access management (FIAM) transforms businesses;
  • the difference between identity management in the cloud and identity brokers;
  • how to determine if FIAM fits your organizational roadmap, and how to begin; and
  • the IdM evolution and future IdMaaS innovations.

When: May 4 - 7, 2010

Presenters and co-panelists: Felix Gaehtgens and Martin Kuppinger, both analysts with Kuppinger Cole, will moderate two of the panel discussions. Miller's co-panelists will include Christian Patrascu of Oracle, Prof. Dr. Ottmar Beckmann of Volkswagen AG, Christian Emig of Universitat Karlsruhe and Guido Wittmann of IT-Security Wittmann.

Event details: European Identity Conference (EIC) is the place to meet with enterprise technologists, thought leaders and experts to learn about, discuss and shape the market in most significant technology topics such as identity management and governance, risk management and compliance (GRC).
