What is eIdentity Service?
eIdentity Service promotes a “Business Identity” for your cloud-enable office. It unifies the administration and usage in a simple user interface. The Portal interface allows user-interaction like login, password management, service usage and registration. The eIdentity interface allows adminstration of cloud-services, your business users, groups and business-entities. It also helps in easy customization on the look and feel of your services. Management of your business domain, your cloud storage data, and quota-allocations are all components of eIdentity.
