We have been receiving quite a few inbound calls/emails/tweets/msgs recently around using Open Peer for identity federation in the Enterprise.
Open Peer identity federation & lookup service (part of Hookflash Cloud Services) really shines when dropped into an enterprise application. Open Peer was built to be neutral in the world of Identities. This BYOID (Bring Your Own ID) approach is somewhat unique and allows us to match IDs across social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook etc.) and enterprise technologies such as LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) which is leveraged heavily in Microsoft deployments. Open Peer also bridges more generic ID types like email & phone numbers so Enterprise users can use other Open Peer services (Voice, Video, Text) to communicate more freely, in almost any Enterprise application. We actually do not create directories of our own per se, in this respect we are a service that finds and connects peers using common ID points.
If you want to know more about how Hookflash can help your Enterprise (or your Enterprise customers) enjoy hassle-free Identity Federation and OTT (Over-The-Top) – Voice, Video and Text, drop us a line.
