Passed - Sun Certified Integrator for Identity Manager Exam

Passed the Sun Certified Integrator for Identity Manager exam this morning. Whew, what a relief. Did some amount of preparation for the last three days, thanks to a lot of prodding and guidance from my friend at Sun Learning, Rajesh. Thanks Rajesh

As explained in the exam objectives, there is stuff from SPML, General IDM architecture, Where IDM fits in, XPRESS language questions using snippets of code, Reconciliation etc etc. Most of the stuff is covered in the IDM-345 class, but I had not done this course. I had done a very old course called IDM-2535 or something like that, five years back ;-)

Finally, why did I do it? Well, I have been working in different areas of Sun Identity Manager since 2005, but had never gotten a chance to validate, what I knew, and if I had covered all the areas of Sun IDM. An exam, I believe, is the best way to validate your breadth of knowledge. Of course, the certifications are no substitute for real world experience, but atleast you can trust that a "certified" person knows the basics ;-)
