Covisint Chief of Security to Provide Lessons Learned and the Secret to Successful IdM Implementations: Managing Cloud Identities in a Business Context

DETROIT, July 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, today announced that its Chief Security Officer, Dave Miller, will present “Implementing Identity Management in the Cloud: Lessons Learned” at the Cloud Identity Summit in Keystone, Colo.
