PwC success stories
Biometrics traveller validation
The a collection of foreign counties faces several challenges to managing its external borders, including increasing flow of visiting passengers, over stayers, illegal immigrants, and outdated border controls. The collection of foreign countries engaged PwC to conduct a thorough Technical (Feasibility) Study for two proposed large-scale IT systems: (1) Entry-Exit System (EES) - a biometrics-based registration and identification of third country nationals (TCN) at Entry and Exit within a central system shared by all countries, and (2) Registered Traveller Program (RTP) - a system to facilitate border crossings for pre-vetted frequent TCN travellers. As a result, the Technical Study by PwC included:
- Conducting a feasibility assessment and presenting results for various biometric characteristics; and
- Analysing IT architecture options and possible synergies with existing systems PwC.
PwC’s support established a minimum data set per passenger and its compliance with member countries’ data protective legislation. In addition, the costs for establishing both systems were analysed and presented.
Cross-system integration and data sharing
A Fortune 500 company engaged PwC to integrate the Oracle Internet Database (OID) Component of the Oracle Identity Management (OIM) Software Suite with Active Directory Exchange and other SQL databases. PwC’s support included:
- Defining system requirements, designing the IT architecture, and developing a roadmap and phased integration plan; and
- Supporting integration with the “Federation” and development of system and information access agreements between companies.
PwC’s support enabled multiple companies to share select employee information and personnel identifiers in a secure manner across their respective systems without compromising data integrity or their employees’ identity.
Given our extensive experience working with Federal and private sector clients on critical IM initiatives, PwC understands the Federal operating environment and challenges to support IM program optimization. We facilitate seamless integration between commercial and Federal IM practitioners to introduce more advanced technical solutions from the private sector into the Federal marketplace.
As the interoperability of IM becomes an imperative across DHS, other Federal agencies, state/local partners, and international partners, PwC can help clients develop and execute strategies needed to manage access across the physical and virtual ecosystem, improve interoperability, manage and control data, minimize risk, and boost efficiencies, all while managing reputational risks associated with IM failures.
