CA embedded Workpoint into CA Identity Manager® and CA Role & Compliance Manager®. CA Identity Manager is a comprehensive solution that manages all types of identities across all IT systems, from the Web to the mainframe, throughout the full identity lifecycle. CA IDM provides an authoritative point of identity administration, enforces consistent identity policies and audits identity-related actions. CA Role & Compliance Manager enables you to efficiently build and maintain an accurate role model for your organization while helping you improve identity compliance processes. Using advanced, pattern-based analysis, it greatly reduces the time and effort required for role modeling processes. By automating entitlements certification and providing centralized identity security policies, CA RCM helps you improve security and address compliance requirements.
Workpoint provides CA Identity Manager and CA Role Compliance Manager with a graphical workflow engine, automating routine business procedures such as provisioning requests that require approvals and user provisioning actions. With Workpoint, CA's customers can view every step of the Provisioning process and when one step is completed, the next step is automatically initiated. Workpoint dynamically builds and displays all requested approvals, enabling designated personnel to see exactly what requires their attention and when it must be completed. Workpoint also maintains the status of these procedures so that the initiators can track their requests without needlessly calling or emailing people.
Workpoint also provides CA's customers with workflow features that can be used as is or customized in any way that the business requires. CA's customers can also extend CA IDM or CA RCM workflow procedures into additional business systems. With Workpoint's execution engine embedded, CA's customers have seen a significant reduction in process errors and a substantial increase in process productivity. Thousands of IDM and RCM users are ultimately equipped with an effective and efficient solution to manage critical business processes across the enterprise.
