Provide Immediate Access to the right resources
With Novell Identity Manager, new users can be immediately productive, receiving access to essential business resources on the first day of their relationship with your organisation. In fact, when you create a new user in your HR database (or a customer or partner in their related application), all of the user's accounts are generated automatically - according to your business rules - and any necessary resources or services are supplied. Novell Identity Manager also makes it easy to quickly and consistently manage user groups: you can automatically grant access rights to everyone with a given role (i.e., manager, VP, doctor, student, etc.).
Simplify Password Management
With Novell Identity Manager, you can synchronize a user's passwords to provide a single password to all systems. Users are likely to remember a single password, but if they don't, they can receive hints or change the password through self-service capabilities. Users can also manage their passwords using the native password interfaces in systems such as Microsoft Windows.
To ensure that your passwords are secure, you can use Novell Identity Manager to create and enforce strong, system-wide password policies that will help protect your company against password-related attacks. The password management features of Identity Manager reduce helpdesk calls and increase security and user productivity.
Automate Routine User Management Tasks
Novell Identity Manager streamlines administration by automating routine user management tasks or enabling users to perform the tasks themselves. As users switch offices, receive promotions, take on special assignments or begin new projects, they may need updated access rights or user profile information. With a single change, Novell Identity Manager can automatically update users' rights and information across all systems. It also enables users to update their own profiles - including contact information and other personal data - through an integrated self-service portal.
