MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 12, 2013
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TOTVS S.A. (BM&FBOVESPA:
TOTS3), a leader in business management software development, today announced
the beta availability of Fluig Identity, a new service for businesses that
combines a cloud-based identity management system with big data to unleash new
talent management capabilities. The cloud-based offering provides companies
with the ability to combine social media and enterprise data to build an
identity graph that will help better understand employees' capabilities and
match open positions with current employee strengths.
With Fluig Identity, employees – and the companies they work for – gain mutual
benefit from the information provided in their social profiles.
From a security perspective, Fluig Identity provides a single cloud-based
resource that manages identity and access to corporate applications and
resources as well as employees' social networks and other personal online
resources, simplifying personal online access while improving personal online
and mobile device security. For example, users can bring together business
applications like Office 365 and Google Apps, as well as their online social
media, shopping and other applications. This single-sign-on approach to
identity management eliminates the need for employees to manage passwords and
access to each site and application by making them easy to access in one
secure location. The user can also enable One Time Password to access all
their apps, from personal to work related.
From a business perspective, Fluig Identity improves security to the
organizations when adopting SaaS applications, since all of them are accessed
using secure and encrypted certificates using open standards, instead of
depending on replicating weak passwords, for example. In addition, users can
be automatically created once they are added to the human resources (HR)
systems, or Active Directory, significantly reducing the time spent on
creating credentials. Furthermore, the same advantage works for removing
employee access when they leave the organization. All of these happen through
configurable workflows to more than 300 natively integrated applications, like
SalesForce, Google Apps, Box, GoodData, WorkDay and others available in the
At the same time, Fluig Identity provides employees with the ability to opt
into sharing professional information, such as the skills posted on their
LinkedIn profile, allowing Fluig to map skills and experience to open company
positions and unique task requirements. As a result, Fluig Identity helps
management teams better understand their employees, and to match employees to
opportunities inside their organizations that fit their personal strengths,
experience and unique skills.
"Until today, identity and access management has been focused on security and
protecting corporate resources," said Vicente Goetten, executive director of
TOTVS Labs. "Fluig Identity creates a powerful new value proposition, helping
management teams efficiently map employee skills, experience and interests to
open positions that might be difficult to fill. It's the first time companies
and employees mutually benefit from the information included in social
profiles and inside the organizations. Fluig Identity provides a powerful way
to reduce recruiting costs and employee turnover, while increasing job
satisfaction and employee morale."
For example, multilingual employees can be matched to jobs that require
fluency in more than one language or skilled engineers can be placed in
positions that take advantage of their technology skills and passions.
Within a company, Fluig Identity can define which employees or partners can
access which corporate applications. If an employee leaves the organization,
the company can block access to corporate resources, but the individual can
still access his/her personal applications within Fluig.
To protect privacy, each individual in Fluig must opt-in to allow Fluig
Identity to scan and share information from each social or professional
profile, with the understanding that sharing skills and experience can lead to
new career opportunities.
The beta trial of Fluig Identity is available at www.fluigidentity.com for a
30-day period. Once the beta trial ends, organizations will have the option of
subscribing to Fluig Identity for a $3.00/ user / month fee.
