Chances are your web sites hold information and processes
controlled by different functions within your organization or even
external organizations. The WSA reflects this reality by supporting
fully delegated administration.
As the administrators partition your web site into independently
administrated resources, they can define which individuals can perform
which administrative functions for the resources. Some or all administrative
functions can be delegated to individual departments or even employees
in other organizations.
WSA administration takes place through a simple, web
interface, so anyone who is comfortable with a browser can manage
The WSA authenticates administrators though their certificates.
Accuracy is improved because administration, especially
user administration, can be 100% delegated to those who best
know the needs of the information or application.
Efficiency is improved because the responsible administrators
can directly affect changes without going through intermediaries.
Liability is reduced because the responsibility
(hence liability) can be delegated to the legal entities that
own the information or application.
