HOUSTON, Jan. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, will be featured by one of the world's top energy companies at the Microsoft 10th Global Energy Forum. The presentation will show how Covisint helped improve external collaboration, manage access and provisioning processes while minimizing development and operations costs for external business relationships.

Connecting external business partners globally often presents the challenges of onboarding individual users, workflow issues, user experiences and the integration of multiple technologies relating to security and identity management issues. This energy company--one of the world's largest--will discuss how it used Covisint's cloud engagement platform to define its access strategy, scale globally, maintain positive end-user experiences and enable secure access to applications and critical, sensitive information.

Attendees will learn how Covisint helped to better:

  • leverage the energy company's portal for real-time, secure information and sensitive data;
  • maintain a positive end-user experience by keeping the look-and-feel consistent regardless of where the end-user resides;
  • enable the ability to search through data while ensuring the confidentiality of sensitive information; and,
  • create a central API for external-facing applications.

"The energy industry shares vast amounts of data across many differing technologies and organizational boundaries," said David Miller, Covisint Chief Security Officer. "Our customer's achievements will provide a real-world path to success in how organizations use Covisint's platform to not only overcome collaboration challenges, but also turn these challenges into competitive advantages."
