Internet2 has taken the first steps toward implementing COmanage, an Internet2- and NSF-funded software package. We believe COmanage has the ability to better support our community as well as streamline many of our business processes.
COmanage is one of the TIER Program components which enables cohorts within, and across, multiple institutions to self-manage, and provides support for provisioning and deprovisioning of services and access controls to a variety of resources. It is both an entity registry as well as a provisioning engine. The COmanage functionality is powerful, feature-rich and serves as a means of connecting applications together in a way that enables "virtual teams" to function autonomously.
