2010 and the Year in Identity

As the year draws down, I've been thinking a bit about the year and what's it's meant in Identity Management. There's certainly been a bit of discussion about the nature of Identity, authentication and authorization controls.  As technology, process and legislation grow closer, there's a greater need for Governance and Compliance controls than ever before.  We're also seeing the beginning of the Cloud truly being a part of the IdM solution.

We're also seeing consolidation on the business side in both the product and implementation branches with Oracle, SAP and Microsoft all making purchases.

Related to this, one thing I've been wondering is what will happen with SAP systems if you rely on either CUA or SUN Identity Manager. What are your plans, if any, for migrating off?  I've started a discussion on LinkedIn about this. Please take a moment and  share your thoughts about what you are considering or planning.

On a personal note, I wish all of my readers a happy and healthy New Year.
