Revelation Software Plans Support for OpenID Authentication; Counts Down to 2013 User Conference

Revelation Software plans to include support for OpenID authentication as part of OpenInsight for Web (O4W), a web development toolkit that makes it possible for OpenInsight developers with limited or no HTML, XML or JavaScript experience to develop feature-rich web pages. OpenID allows people to use an existing account to sign in to multiple websites without the need to create new passwords. The new capability will be included in O4W as part of the OpenInsight 10.0 release, which is currently under development, Robert Catalano, director of sales at Revelation, tells DBTA.

In other Revelation news, the Revelation user conference is scheduled for April 16-19 in Nashville, Tennessee. This year’s conference will include O4W training sessions focused on the basic APIs and how to use them, as well as on how to develop mobile applications. In addition, sessions will cover a variety of topics, including the new OpenInsight console, the Banded Report Writer, Arev 32, and high availability network design for O4W websites. The sessions will be presented by speakers from all over the world, including the U.K., Canada, Australia, Switzerland, as well as the U.S., notes Catalano.

In a departure from previous Revelation conferences, this year’s conference will not include a vendor fair in order to make time for an evening social. “This will provide the opportunity for attendees to mix in a casual setting and discuss business,” observes Catalano.
