Glad to see them getting into the act

It was fantastic to see SAP actively stepping into the Identity Management discussion in the article Better services in higher education? Without Identity Management: no chance!

I've long been a proponent of bringing IdM to Higher Education. With constantly changing user populations, complex access management needs, and many disparate systems to connect to, usage of an IdM system seems to be a no-brainer. Add on need for Compliance controls given HIPAA, Student Loans, etc, there's an even greater need.

Here in the US, it seems that Oracle has been the 500 pound gorilla pushing IdM in the Higher Education space. Nice to see that there is another vendor stepping up!
