HP is Withdrawing from Identity Management

Seems the word is quietly leaking out. From the analysts and European bloggers.

HP has cut the oxygen off from their Identity Management Team. And, ergo, those loyal customers who bought into their half hearted Identity effort. I am a veteran of HP's investment in BroadVision at the turn of the century, so I know their pain.

This has also been confirmed with the Burton Group Analysts in their recent report:  "Provisioning Market 2008: Survival of the Fittest". Guess HP was not one.  I would reprint the snippet here, but its their IP and you should go read the whole thing. Excellent work. You will need Client access to get the report.

There is also mention on the V
ölcker Infomatik website:


HP surprisingly withdraws from Identity Management

HP withdraws from Identity Management business. For analysts this step is surprising because this segment is considered as profitable and promising. "With HP's withdrawal from this segment gives a clear signal" sais Peter Weierich, spokesman at Völcker Informatik.

At the HP Identity website, they are still pitching their capabilities for Identity. Does it bother anyone that a company would choke off its identity software, but keep pitching it in public on their website?  SO, for anyone considering an HP Identity solution, hope your company kept up its Burton subscription running.

So, to all of you HP customers, you now know why I call this blog "Identity Crisis". It war out here and the next wave is just beginning. Give us a call. We can help (see above Burton report as well).
