OpenLdap is being used by Specsavers to support its store-expansion programme. Michel Kahn, group IT director at Specsavers, said, "Pursuing an open source strategy has allowed us to meet the challenge of opening two new stores an week."
OpenLdap is the open source alternative to Microsoft's Active Directory, which authenticates end-users on to a company's network.
Sirius said it implemented the software so that network access could be managed in a similar way to how a Windows network is managed, as the IT staff were familiar with Windows.
