European Identity Conference

This year's European Identity Conference is devoted to cloud, mobile and social. This promises to be an exciting event this year. Here is a link to the conference.  You will not want to miss Peter Boyle and Mike Neuenschwander. Peter's keynote is on Thursday May 16th. Peter Boyle is Head of Identity Services for BT. Below is an abstract for his talk.

If Your Customers Don't Feel Safe, They Will Leave You

More than 559 million adults have been victims of cyber-crime - that´s more than the population of the European Union. More businesses are trying to connect with customers on social and mobile but, 15% of social networking users have had accounts infiltrated and 21% have fallen prey to mobile or social attacks. Only one incident can cause a customer to shift brands. If you are trying to find new paths to market online, don´t miss this session. Securing the customer experience should be the top priority for any business initiative involving cloud, mobile and social. Faced with the need to secure a growing hosting business with more than 10,000 customers accessing services on-line, British Telecom Identity enabled their applications to secure their customer data and transactions. In this session, Peter Boyle Head of Identity Services for BT will discuss how to keep your customer safe, loyal to your brand and keep them coming back for more.

See Mike Neuenschwander will speak in the following sessions:

  • May 14th 2:00 pm :The Future of IAM

Derek Brink shares "Worst Practices in IT Security"

Derek Brink is Vice President and Research Fellow in IT Security for the Aberdeen Group.  He has established himself as an IT Security Expert having a long and impressive career with companies and organizations ranging from RSA, Sun, HP, the PKI Forum and the Central Intelligence Agency.  So shouldn't he be talking about "Best Practices in IT Security?"

In his latest blog he talks about the thought processes that drive the wrong behavior, and very cleverly shows how that incorrect thinking exposes weaknesses in our IT environments.

Check out his latest blog post titled: "The Screwtape CISO: Memo #1 (silos, stovepipes and point solutions)"

Oracle Named a Leader in both User Provisioning and Identity and Access Governance

Oracle Identity Management solutions were positioned in the Leaders quadrants, in the two recently published Gartner Magic Quadrant reports. This post is the first in a series of multi-part blog discussion, and over the course of next few weeks, we’d be covering details on what we believe make Oracle’s User Provisioning (Identity Administration) solution, Oracle Identity Manager and our Identity and Access Governance solution, Oracle Identity Analytics truly unique and industry leading.

Gartner published their first-ever Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance and Oracle is a leader.

The Gartner document is available by clicking on the note title. Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in its research publications, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors with the highest ratings.

Identity and Access Governance solutions offer business users identity analytics and reports to address governance, audit and compliance challenges. According to Gartner, leaders in Identity and Access Governance (IAG) are “composed of vendors that provide products with a good functional match to client requirements for establishing a governance system for access. These vendors have been successful in building an installed base and revenue stream within the IAG market, and have a relatively high viability rating (because of IAG revenue). Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution for anticipated requirements, as they relate to technology, methodology or means of delivery. Leaders typically have significant market share, strong revenue growth, and demonstrated early customer satisfaction with IAG capabilities and/or related service and support.”

Oracle Identity Analytics is an advanced Identity and Access Governance solution from Oracle offering rich analytics, prioritized risk scoring, business-friendly dashboards, and advanced compliance features that monitor, analyze, review, and govern user access to mitigate risk, build transparency and satisfy compliance mandates.

The key challenge we often hear organizations talk about is scaling the compliance processes. Performing access certifications across not a handful but 100s of applications requires not just an automated solution but a powerful (but business friendly) process engine solution powered by analytics to make sense of all the data. To make it a real world discussion rather than a theoretical one, join ING and Oracle on a live webcast:  Scaling Role Management and Access Certification to Thousands of Applications on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 10:00 AM PDT where ING discusses how they successfully tackled the scale challenge.

Close on its heels, Gartner also published its 2011 Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning and Oracle is a Leader.

Two things are clear with these reports. Organizations are looking at integrated, platform solutions to meet their audit and compliance needs. Platform approach is the only viable approach to close security and audit gaps, reduce TCO and derive the complete picture. And we believe with Oracle’s positioning in the leaders quadrant for both User Provisioning and Identity and Access Governance, organizations are assured that they are not only getting the complete solution but also best-in-class, backed by a strategic vision and strong executive commitment. Seamless integration with Oracle Identity Manager 11g makes Oracle Identity Analytics 11g industry's only access governance solution to offer an accurate closed-loop remediation solution with risk feedback calculated over a user’s lifecycle as actionable insight for certification reviews. To get customers’ perspectives on the implementation and results from the platform approach, we recommend you look at our monthly webcast series on the subject:

Customers Talk: Identity as a Platform.

If you are looking at user provisioning and/or compliance solutions, we suggest you start by downloading these analyst reports and our recently issued press release on the subject.

Customers Talk: 5 Identity Platform Webcasts You Can’t Miss


2011 saw talk of Identity Management emerging from under the shadows of IT to serve the needs of the business. We predict 2012 will see a lot of attention paid to how Identity Management is enabling the business, transforming the way IT is leveraged to meet business objectives.

A common theme among their stories is that Identity Management is not a point solution. Identity Management is a platform of complimentary solutions with a rationalized architecture that can be adopted separately but provide strong interoperability to reduce total cost of ownership. A recent study by Abderdeen noted that organizations who have taken a platform approach can save up to 48%.

Oracle is proud to launch a series of webcasts where we’ll explore the diverse challenges that organizations are facing, and you can hear real customers speak to their specific business objectives and how they leveraged the Identity as a Platform approach to tackle those. In this 5-webcast series, you will hear first-hand from your peers at SaskTel, Agilent, Cisco, ING and Toyota, and learn how leading organizations are rethinking Identity Management as a business versus an IT initiative. You will find that the challenge each of these customers was looking to solve was quite different from each other, yet there is a commonality in their approach to the solution.
