Allied Irish Bank (AIB) has implemented Novell’s identity management to provide consistent identity data across connected systems and support setting up new users and access to applications.

The bank said the software had improved security and enabled faster deployment of applications. To improve operational efficiency, the bank began a project in 2003 to remove servers from branches and progress towards centralised identity management and role based access controls.

The identity management project is now being rolled out to 6,000 users and desktops in more than 300 branch locations across Republic of Ireland, Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The project is expected to complete in 2007.

Along with Novell, AIB IT infrastructure is based on Sun Java Desktop and browser applications running in the branches together with Oracle and SAP.
