Like, how lame is that!

Hi all.

Been busy as anything for the last few months and have kind of dropped out of the blogging habit, but ran across something today that I thought might entertain a little.

Was doing some research on IBM's TIM versus Sun's Identity Manager (we have replaced TIM implementations on a regular basis).

Was utilizing the IBM public website to review information about the latest on TAM.

Middle of the page is a link for "Analyst Report: Gartner's Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning for 1H06". After you pass through one screen warning you that the next screen is out of IBM's control, you go to the Gartner site and see a Magic Quadrant report with IBM clearly in the upper right.

But here the funny thing - its not the report you think. Its for Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management, 1H06, a category Sun does not have an entry for. If you weren't paying attention, you would think IBM is the leader in Identity Management.

If you look at the real Gartner report, you will see IBM up there. Well behind Sun.

Nice bait and switch. Made my day!

Anyway, hope to blog more now that Sun IdM 7.1 is on the way.
