The Italian Army chooses Tirasa and Apache Syncope

The Italian Army, through its department dedicated to management, development and security of network and system / service infrastructures, needs to manage thousands of users on heterogeneous sources as Oracle databases, LDAP, Zimbra and Active Directory: the typical scenario which an Identity Management system should rule.

The staff was seeking for an IdM solution to customize, for adaptation to its particular needs.
After attempting and rejecting the proprietary products offered by the most famous vendors - mainly because of the difficulty to go beyond presets, besides exorbitant costs - the next step was the selection of an Open Source project, additional dowel of a strategy in line with Public Administration directives and some international initiatives.

The Open Source selection resulted in Apache Syncope and Tirasa, which already kicked off its activities to support the Army staff in building the best IdM system possible, for their own specific needs.
