Day 5: Open World Wrap-up

I had a great time this week at Oracle Open World.  It is quite a show with over 47K attendees spread over 4 city blocks with great sessions and conversations about Identity Management and many other cutting edge technologies.  I am definitely in powerpoint overload and would be happy not to see another slide for awhile but the information was great!  We have collected some of the photos from the sessions up on our Facebook page here.  Here is just one of the pictures from the concert on Treasure Island with the Black Eyed Peas, The Steve Miller Band and Don Henley.  It was a great concert.

The presentations were all taped and should be up on the website shortly.  Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.  If you followed us on Twitter, please let us know what you think by sending us messages.

The Verizon presentation on Directory Server Enterprise Edition and using Fracational Replication was a highlight for me.  It should have been scheduled earlier in the week so that more people could have attended.  Verizon has one of the largest directory deployments in the world with 40+ million identities and many partners and LOB's using it as their repository.  The Verizon deployment is also a great example of using Fractional Replication to empower LOB's with their own identity repository but allowing the central team to maintain the control over the data.  Verizon is also a great example of using SSO to reduce cost and maintain a great User Experience across many different portals.  Madhu, thanks for sharing such great information with the identity management community.  I will post the presentation once it is available on the website.

Day 4: IDM at Oracle Open World

Hope you enjoyed the Black Eyed Peas last night.  We have an action packed IDM session on Thursday to finish up the show.  Here is a quick run down of the sessions.  Etienne and I will be introducing Verizon as we talk about how Replication and Fractional Replication are critical features in a high performance Directory Server deployment.

Day 2: Directory at Oracle Open World

Oracle Open World is off to a great start with plenty of good content and demo's for the business owner or technical implementation team.  Yesterday I saw two great demos from the OAM team.  Mark Karlstrand, pictured to the right was giving a demo on OTP Anywhere to Bob Blakeley.  It was impressive as he used his cell phone to provide a stronger authentication method for a bank transfer -demo not real but you get the point.    

There are a couple of ways to follow what is going on during the show.
