Intelligent IDM

Just read a great blog post (Thanks, Dave Kearns for posting in your newsletter) that I think anyone involved in Identity Management Architecture / Design / Management should be aware of.

Earl Perkins from Gartner Group has written a short piece on Business Intelligence information that can be obtained from an IDM solution.

We've spoken for years about making IDM a part of compliance and security, and certainly tools such as SailPoint Identity IQ help provide that data, but I think that all applications, particularly provisioning applications that are long on information and short on reporting and logging could do more to share this information not only with central BI repositories. Certainly there is information that is of interest to a BI warehouse. It would be interesting to see what such a model would look like.

I look forward to seeing what Earl and others develop in this concept.
