Novell secures Victorian Identity with $9.5m deal
Novell has defeated companies such as Sun and IBM for a $9.5 million tender that will connect the directories of the entire Victorian Government. The win is part of a program that the government has termed Project Rosetta. It began in late 2002 as part of an IT initiative to connect directories across the government. Presently, the departments have separate and disconnected information directories. Novell will be entrusted to ensure communication occurs seamlessly. It will also create a white and yellow pages directory for government departments to share and view information. This is expected to be completed by next year. Novell’s solution will largely be based around its Nsure Identity Manager product (formerly DirXML). Among its many functions, the product can synchronise multiple passwords into a single login as well as being able to instantly modify or revoke access rights.
