Summary

Clarity was a server and user identity management solution in one. It was designed to handle primarily Open Source based infrastructures. The goal was to bring about the same ease of management and friendly GUIs as have become common in proprietary software. Clarity managed the entire organization logically and due to its open-standard approach, it was extended to control any piece of software, Open Source or otherwise. Clarity would automatically make the required changes once requested through a user-friendly GUI. The key benefits of this project were given below: • The product made the deployment and management of Linux and Open Source Software (OSS), a cost effective alternative to proprietary IT solutions, e.g., Microsoft, Oracle etc., easier and cheaper. • It facilitated open-source solution providers to increase their customer base and provided value-added service to their current clients by offering their solutions along with Clarity. • It developed a team of qualified Open Source personnel to deploy and manage the Open Source Software.
