OpenDS Tab Sweep

It's been a while since I last posted an OpenDS tab sweep. So here's a list of news and pointers related to our open source LDAP directory server.

PCQuest Top Story this month is about the Top 10 Enterprise Open Source Apps, which include OpenDS and an article on Managing Identities with OpenDS.

The OpenDS project is starting to demonstrate its maturity. Several startups and software companies are now officially supporting OpenDS.

IconcurldapintegrationiConcur Software delivers new Axiom a Requirements management tool integrates by default with OpenDS.

Bonitasoft, the leader in open source Business Process Management (BPM) and a Grenoble based company, uses OpenDS for testing its support of LDAP repositories and praises it to its own customers, for its ease of use. Ask @rodrigue !

Symeos, another high profile French startup is building its Symeos Appliance Framework on open source projects including GlassFish, OpenSSO and OpenDS.

Janua, a French IT services company specialized in identity projects has included OpenDS in its product offering and has just launched a new site for its LDAPTools.

Sopera, a german company building open source SOA is integrating OpenDS in its development tools and offering, as shown on the screenshot below (courtesy of SpringSource)

Also in the recent days a couple of new LDAP browsers appeared.

Finally, in a introductory article titled Microsoft Azure for the Dummies, Ernest regrets the lack of flexibility in the PaaS plans from Microsoft and suggest that Java based OpenDS directory Server as a good alternative for running your own LDAP service on MS infrastructure.

A successful technical software event...

The Technical software event organized last week in Grenoble Engineering Center has been a great success. Kudos to Dominique, a great G.O.

The attendance exceeded our expectations (and almost our room capacity). There was more than 190 persons over the 4 days, an average of 100 attendees per day (and nearly 120 on the first dat), coming from 20 different countries.

Below some of our guest speakers : Dan Berg, Alban Richard -Director of the Directory Services Engineering and Grenoble Site Leader-, Roman Strobl -aka Mr. NetBeans-, Gilles Gravier -OpenSolaris and open source enthousiast-, Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine -GlassFish evangelist and emeritus skier-.

DSC_8025.jpgOn Friday, I presented an introduction to the OpenDS project (PDF) in the general session and in the afternoon a 2 hours session demoing the basic features and principles of OpenDS. There is some feedback to the developer team with regards to dsconfig and usability, an area where we haven't really focused so far.

There has been other reports on the event, by Dominique [1], [2], [3]. [4], Alexis.
