May 30, 2017 – Alexandria, VA – Delta Think and LibLynx today announced a partnership to further enhance the user experience of Delta Think’s groundbreaking Open Access Data Analytics Tool (OADAT).
OADAT combines Delta Think’s knowledge and expertise with powerful data analytics and visualization capabilities to offer unprecedented insights into the OA publishing market. By bringing together for the first time a consistently organized, cross-referenced and constantly updated review of the effects of Open Access along with the interactive tools to perform granular slicing and dicing of information, organizations can drill down into information directly relevant to them.
LibLynx’s identity and access management solution enables Delta Think’s OADAT to be rapidly packaged as an enterprise subscription service. LibLynx’s web-based admin tools make it quick and easy to set up and configure subscription-based access via a range of popular institutional authentication methods, simplifying access for users.
“Layering LibLynx access management onto the Delta Think OA Data Analytics Tool makes seamless enterprise access a reality for publishers and institutions,” said Ann Michael, CEO of Delta Think. “This partnership enables our subscribers to easily share insights and data analytics within their organization, encouraging a culture of data-driven strategy development and benchmarking.”
The integration will involve development of a SAML-based Identity Provider (IdP) to enable Single Sign-On for users of the OADAT platform.
“We are delighted to help Delta Think to improve access to their unique subscription service,” said Tim Lloyd, CEO of LibLynx. “This is a great example of the value of having a flexible identity and access solution that is independent of platform and technology.”
