Title: OASIS Member News: Business Layers Adds eProvisionT MicrosoftR Edition To Its Family of Provisioning Solutions

Business Layers Adds eProvision(tm) Microsoft(r) Edition To Its Family of Provisioning Solutions

Automates Identity Management, Improving Productivity and Reducing Administrative Costs for Microsoft Systems Administrators

ROCHELLE PARK, NJ -- July 2, 2003 - Business Layers, the eProvisioning Company(tm), today introduced eProvision(tm) Microsoft(r) Edition, a pre-configured, out-of-the-box, quick-deploy provisioning solution uniquely tailored to the needs of Microsoft enterprise customers.  eProvision Microsoft Edition increases productivity and security while lowering administrative costs by automatically translating changes in personnel status into specific Microsoft desktop and messaging configuration changes.


The success for any business today is dependent upon providing the appropriate level of access for personnel, business partners and clients to sensitive digital resources while enforcing overall corporate security policies.  Business Layers' eProvision Microsoft Edition provides a focal point for IT resource allocation requests, approvals and activities.  Based on Business Layers' industry-leading eProvision software, eProvision Microsoft Edition allows IT administrators to control normal business changes to automatically drive provisioning tasks, such as opening and configuring Windows and Exchange accounts, in a coordinated, comprehensive and timely fashion.  It includes out-of-the-box connectors to Windows, Exchange, Active Directory, Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 (MIIS 2003) and it incorporates modules that provide self-service and password reset - two functions key to improving customer service and productivity. 


"eProvision Microsoft Edition does what every system administrator needs most right now - the means to do "more with less" in order to secure sensitive information and save valuable time while reducing administrative costs," said David Lavenda, VP of Product Strategy and Marketing at Business Layers. "eProvision Microsoft Edition is a completely new concept in provisioning, designed to simplify installation and configuration so that IT can create security policies that don't require long time periods or major investments in services to get up and running."

Key Features and Benefits

Key features and benefits of eProvision Microsoft Edition include:

* Lowered administrative costs - automatically translates changes in user status to specific Windows administrative actions.

* Improved security - tracks provisioning changes for future review and assures that provisioning policies are followed.

* Easy method for compliance - provides low cost, easier compliance to regulatory and legal standards through audit trails, and an accurate account of the business reason behind resources allocation.

* Reduced help desk costs-includes out-of-the-box user password reset for many popular systems.

* Extensibility - upgradeable to incorporate additional features offered through eProvision Enterprise Edition.

* Scalability - scales to support non-Microsoft target systems without custom development and can scale to include more complex business processes and workflow scenarios.

Pricing and Availability

eProvision Microsoft Edition is available immediately.  Some of the eProvision Microsoft Edition-specific features, including a streamlined installation process and user templates, will be added later this quarter.  Pricing is determined on a per-user basis.
