The Open Source selection resulted in Apache Syncope and Tirasa, which provided ts activities to support the Army staff in building the best IdM system possible, for their own specific needs.
After a PoC built by Tirasa and based on Apereo CAS and Apache Syncope, the Institute decided to proceed on this path by engaging Tirasa itself to realize the whole infrastructure.
Provisioning is involved with managing the internal data sources and external via specific connectors for representation of users, groups and attributes. This component often needs to be tailored to meet the requirements of a specific deployment. The enterprise support of Tirasa, gave us the manageability, scalability and flexibility to connect and protect millions of consumers at enterprise customers
Currently the whole infrastructure, based on Apache Syncope, manages about 5.000 users, periodically synchronized with HR.
We choose Apache Syncope to carry out the provisioning and account management role as part of our authorization platform, due to its simplicity and flexible adoption to the product needs. Another important consideration was the knowledge and excellent support provided by the Tirasa team
Tirasa provided timely support and always followed up to ensure that all issues were resolved to satisfaction.
Stichting Bibliotheek.nl is very content with Apache Syncope as a product and intends to extend its services based on it.
SURFnet is currently planning how to include Syncope it in its identity management and collaboration middleware for provisioning / deprovisioning needs.
SWM is very satisfied with both the community and the commercial support of Tirasa.
We have had a few years to get to know Apache Syncope and have gained some in-depth knowledge of its use. For this, the support provided by Tirasa has been a vital aid. We have received help in the form of, for instance, code examples providing a preview of the implementation, as well as solutions to configuration problems and quick fixes to any errors we have discovered.
Users can log in via SPID, thanks to the functional extension developed by Tirasa.
The UShareSoft UForge Identity management service, is based on Apache Syncope, which was expressly chosen for it's richly defined and complete RESTful API.
