Infoshare and Mvine partner to enable seamless and cyber-secure access to 60 England and Wales Cricket Board services for over 1.5 million users
LONDON, 19 JUNE 2017: Distributed Digital Identity specialists Mvine Ltd announces today its client The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has gone live with a new online collaboration platform to deliver a powerful single customer view and single sign-on solution for the 2017 English cricket season. The move comes as ECB looks for a unified way of interacting with over 1.5 million users across its many applications in order to gain an understanding of their needs, create an improved user experience and drive participation in the sport.
Damian Smith, Head of IT at ECB, said: “It is no simple task, linking individuals across disparate systems – particularly where different sources of information hold levels of data quality captured in varied ways. From fans, to players, to coaches, to parents, to venues, to teams; the individuals who interact on our systems are huge and varied. We needed a secure, flexible and clean system. Infoshare and Mvine have delivered exactly what we wanted.”
The ECB selected a combination of Infoshare’s ClearCore software and Mvine’s Cloud Services Enablement platform running on iomart’s CloudSure managed hosting.
Frank Joshi, Director at Mvine, said: “We’re delighted with the delivery of this project. ECB is now able to enjoy the benefits of the transformational work as well as the digital and cloud technologies enabling it. I think users will definitely appreciate the difference they experience and this promotes participation in the sport. Infoshare should be commended for its part in making this project a success. Its ClearCore solution capably took care of the level of master data management this project demanded and deserved, including creation of gold records.”
Richard Onslow, Director at Infoshare, said: “The thoroughness, accuracy and evidence-based nature of managing master data, coupled with the flexibility, agility and speed of the Mvine Cloud Services Enablement platform, has delivered a much more simplified and effective single customer view and single sign-on for the ECB that is not only totally secure, but user friendly too. It gives easy access to all of the applications appropriate to each user, whilst offering them the ability to maintain their profile in one place and gives the ECB a clearer understanding of the breadth of participation in cricket.”
