Interview with Harvey Bondar, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at Digital Persona
by Berislav Kucan - Wednesday, 7 May 2003.
We have enjoyed a long and productive relationship with Microsoft. We are currently a 'Managed Partner' and call on prospects together. With Microsoft Server 2003, we integrate with Active Directory (AD). AD provides organisations with much greater flexibility in implementing Active Directory based solutions. Most importantly, a global schema change is no longer required. This allows department or divisional implementations without changing the Directory at a global corporate level. This will enable us to dramatically expand the market that is available for our solution as it removes an undesirable blocker to implementations.
What are Digital Persona's plans for the future?
Digital Persona will continue to support and sell the products it has and in the coming weeks, we will be announcing a new product that will revolutionise mobile biometrics. This will accelerate an OEM strategy that we already see providing powerful dividends. Beyond that, our core focus will be on adding key functionality to the products we sell into the enterpise.
