The open source Identity Server which powers Saudi Arabia National Unemployment Assistance Program with 4 Million Users

In Saudi Arabia, ELM is a trusted provider of secure electronic services. Providing deep expertise in innovative and specialized e-services for government transaction and e-government initiatives, it is the first company in Saudi Arabia to have successfully launched a fully compliant e-government process.

In 2011, the Unemployment Assistance Program project launched to provide an allowance for all Saudi citizens who were currently unemployed and searching for a job. ELM had implemented the system, which included a portal where citizens could submit their requests, as well as applications running in the background that managed all the processes for qualifying the users and handling any payments. Initially, the project just covered one program.

However, a year later, as the Saudi government expanded services to include several programs, ELM recognized the need to streamline the administration for managing the user identities of everyone involved with the program. Recently ELM architected and implemented a system to manage a range of processes for the Saudi national Unemployment Assistance Program. Today, ELM relies on WSO2 Identity Server to manage some 4 million users of the Unemployment Assistance Program and ensure secure online transactions.
