LAS VEGAS, Nov. 30, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, announced that its Chief Security Officer, David Miller, will speak at the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit on why identity management (IdM) alone isn't enough for today's hyper-connected organizations. Miller will present the case for why a secure cloud engagement platform is required to truly meet customers and business partners on their terms.

"Identity management alone is only one-half of the equation," Miller said. "People today demand secure cloud engagement wherever they are and on whatever device they choose. Businesses ignore this increasingly clear customer- and partner-centric advice at their own peril."

Gartner IAM Summit attendees will learn from Covisint's CSO about:

  • cloud identity framework methods enabling secure external engagement;
  • using robust cloud API services to allow third-party deep integrations and development;
  • identity frameworks enabling broker access to data through hyperlinks, portlets, mash-ups and mobile devices; and, among others,
  • standard access management tasks involving credential management, authorization and audit.

What: Miller's presentation, titled: "Orchestrating External Engagement Through Access Patterns"

Who should attend: Managers, directors and vice presidents of security.

What to expect: At a high level, Miller will discuss businesses' cloud engagement transformation and the impact to customers and business partners. Specifically, he will discuss integration patterns involving hyperlinks, iFrames, portlets, mash-ups, mobile and APIs.

When/where: 1:15 p.m. on Monday, December 3, Gartner IAM Summit, Octavius 12 (Theater Show Floor), Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.
