Welcome to the Learning Center
EmpowerID overcomes the limitations of traditional Identity Management (IdM) as the only Identity Management and Cloud Security product to be built entirely upon a Business Process Automatio (BPA)n platform.
In the past, effective IdM had been the exclusive domain of only the largest of enterprises whose scales of economy allowed them to retain large consulting staffs required to perform the large amount of customization required to make IdM software conform to their business processes. A BPA-based architecture solves this common software problem where a software application is written once and then used by many end customers each with different requirements.
In EmpowerID, "the workflow is the application." This breakthrough approach constitutes the key difference between EmpowerID and other IdM systems – it is the difference between a traditional, static application and EmpowerID’s extraordinary flexibility that arises from its basis in a BPA platform. EmpowerID allows customers to modify any process so that the application conforms to their business needs, and not the other way around.
EmpowerID 2013 ships with over 400 ready-to-use workflows covering everything from user provisioning to SAML-based SSO. The workflows are templates that contain building blocks that can be reorganized, modified by adding additional pre-built processes or by adding your own custom code, so that the workflow is a completely flexible process from start to finish. Any custom code. that is needed is reduced to 10% of what would be needed without EmpowerID as the base services provided by EmpowerID handle everything from authentication, authorization, task tracking, SSO, to foreign system connectivity.
