Today I had the opportunity to mark the Single-sign On project that I’ve been working on for well over a year as “DONE”. It’s actually the 2nd time I acted as the business liaison to implement that feature on a Progress-hosted website. I’m not sure what happened to the first one… All I know is that I moved to another group and while I was gone someone broke it; so we started from scratch. I was happy to finally take a step into the 21st century.

I’m not going to go into detail about how we got here but I will say that SSO evokes a strong debate between “the business” (in this case web marketing) and IT. I have to admit though... today I feel like a bit of a winner. Not only does it mean that a visitor to our web properties needs only to register once to gain access to white papers, demos, software, support applications and gated communities, but they’ll also get a pretty custom-login and post-in page when they visit. IT didn’t like that… :-)My next battle will be the length of the registration form. Ugh!

While I was busy testing and prepping for the launch, we made some new resources available – a video, a webinar and a white paper. The webinar is moderated by IDC Program Director, Maureen Fleming, and Progress CTO, Dr. John Bates. It explores factors driving the emergence of business navigation systems and how they improve operational responsiveness by:

  • Expanding visibility of all business operations;
  • Enabling you to sense and respond to opportunities and threats as they happen — not after;
  • Make continuous, real-time improvements to business processes;
  • Reduce your time-to-value.

Get these resources, test out our new SSO feature, and become part of the Progress community! I would also welcome your thoughts on improving it!
