Oxford University Press adopt SAMS identity and access management software across full portfolio

Oxford University Press plans to extend its existing use of Semantico’s SAMS access and identity management system across its Academic publishing portfolio. This marks a strategic collaboration between the parties to combine OUP’s publishing expertise with Semantico’s market-leading access and identity management services.

SAMS is to be integrated with Silverchair’s SCM6 platform in late 2016, enabling an uninterrupted research experience for the platform’s end-users, ensuring that both the OUP and its partners remain market-leaders in digital content delivery.

Richard Padley, Co-founder and Chairman of Semantico said: “I am delighted OUP have made the strategic decision to implement the SAMS system to deliver seamless access and identity management across their Academic publishing portfolio. By making content access and discovery easier for the end-user they will see usage and revenue growth.”
