Re: Push back and automate
Only the rinky dinkiest of operations I've worked at have used names, initials or any permutation thereof for logins. Everywhere else it's always been based on some kind of unique identifier, be it staff code or employee ID or whatever you choose to call it.
Really? I've worked at orgs from 20 people up to 300,000, and only the one 300,000-strong organisation used anything other than username. Current employer has ~ 5000 and uses names. Two or three places back, employer had ~50,000 staff and used names.
