Single-Sign On For Australian Telcom's Go Google Project

Ping Identity : 26 August, 2010  (Application Story)
Australian AAPT has taken PingConnect cloud-based automated account management and single sign-on services for enabling its 1200 workers to access Google Apps services securely


AAPT this week extended its move into Google Apps cloud services, deploying Gmail, contacts and calendar systems across its 1,200-strong workforce. Eight months after the telco began a two-phased project to “go Google,†AAPT is declaring the project an overwhelming success. Making use of automated user account management and Internet Single Sign-On capabilities from Ping Identity’s Cloud-based PingConnect, Australia’s third largest telco reports the project will have paid for itself by September. “Our decision to move to Google was largely about gaining greater business speed and agility – and to reduce IT costs,†says David Yuile, Chief Operating Officer, AAPT. “We also believed the move to Google Apps would fundamentally change the way our people work and collaborate.†When the decision was made, AAPT had 10 days to migrate 1,200 employees to Google Apps – a timeframe the internal IT team could not meet with existing technology. AAPT’s existing access controls could not be compromised and delivering Single Sign-On access was critical to the project’s success. To meet all of these requirements, AAPT chose PingConnect, Ping Identity’s Cloud-based Internet Identity Security solution. “We considered every option we could find and there was nothing else out there that even came close to this. Without Ping Identity, the migration process would have been timely and expensive. PingConnect made it easy and we have the visibility and automation we need to securely manage user accounts over time. Our people can securely access Google Apps without an additional login and adoption rates have exceeded our expectations. “Provisioning 1,200 employees to Google Apps would traditionally have been a three-month project. Using PingConnect we completed this in five days, making the entire process extremely cost-effective and giving us no reason not to do it,†he says. AAPT expects to save $252,000 a year in licensing fees and email account administration costs as a result of the move.
