Poka-yoke is a Japanese term for a process that is translated in English as "mistake proofing." Various poka-yoke tools and techniques establish a better baseline for error-free processes. The concept of poka-yoke involves limiting the number of possible incorrect options, resulting in fewer (or no) user errors.
Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication process that allows a user to access multiple applications with one set of login credentials. SSO is a common procedure in enterprises, where a client accesses multiple resources connected to a local area network (LAN).
SSO advantages include:
With SSO, a user logs in once and gains access to different applications, without the need to re-enter log-in credentials at each application. SSO authentication facilitates seamless network resource usage. SSO mechanisms vary, depending on application type.
