Some might wonder what SSO is. So here's an explanation from Wikipedia
Shared services refers to the provision of a service by one part of an organization or group where that service had previously been found in more than one part of the organization or group. Thus the funding and resourcing of the service is shared and the providing department effectively becomes an internal service provider. The key is the idea of 'sharing' within an organization or group.
In general it was a really eye opener event not just to fresh grads / undergrads, but also to those who are already in the working feild but had yet failed to see the potential of SSO. Shall you need more info feel free to visit or
