Join us this Thursday, July 28, 2011 at 1PM Pacific (replay will be available after initial broadcast) as Andras Cser, Principal Analyst, Forrester and Vikas Jain, Director of Product Management, Intel Cloud Identity & Security shed light on how account provisioning should be added to deliver enterprise class secure cloud access implementations.
As IdM in the Enterprise evolved, all software programs from operating systems, middleware, and applications as well as networking programs such as VPN converged on integrating with a single authoritative ID store based on LDAP protocol. The cloud is changing this as every SaaS application tries to maintain account information about users leading to emergence of multiple identity silos. On the other hand, many SaaS providers are eyeing identities they manage as business assets to create stickiness with their products and getting in the race of becoming authoritative identity provider themselves. These couple of scenarios are leading to new challenges to solve in the identity provisioning and synchronization space.
