Centrica plc is an integrated energy company operating in seven countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States. A top-30, FTSE-100 company, the organization secures and supplies electricity and gas for 30 million consumer and business customers.
Centrica undertook a two-year strategic identity and access management program to improve user experience, strengthen security, and improve management control. As part of this program, Centrica brought its human resources (HR) applications in-house and implemented employee and manager self-service for 45,000 users. Single sign-on was a key to delivering seamless, self-service functionality, and Centrica worked with Oracle partner aurionPro SENA to implement Oracle Identity Federation to enable secure access for employees and partner organizations.
Oracle partner auroinPro SENA worked with Centrica to implement Oracle Identity Federation within six months, finalizing the design and providing a technical consultant on-site throughout the implementation.
“The aurionPro SENA team members were very professional, very helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. They played an integral role in helping us to optimize our investment in a secure, streamlined, and robust identity management solution and were especially proactive in transferring knowledge to our support partner, Infosys. I would definitely recommend them,” said Chris Wilton, senior project manager, Centrica.
