Concur Technologies ( is a provider of expense management software. Concur Expense Service (CES) is a powerful web-based expense reporting solution that enables expense reports to be created, submitted, filed, reviewed, approved, and audited online, using one complete solution.

This document demonstrates how to integrate Novell Access Manager and Concur, using the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) solution for Single Sign-on (SSO) to the Concur Expense Service (CES). The tests were performed with the Novell Access Manager 3 Support pack 1, and Concur Expense Services.
