By nwooler on Jul 13, 2010
The Identity Management market is evolving and it is an exciting place to be involved in shaping that evolution. For some that evolution is an opportunity for others it is a headache. At Oracle we see this as a great opportunity.
When I started in the Identity Management field it is wasn't even called identity management it was about solving high availability problems for customer and partner extranets before personalization and portal solutions existed. LDAP was a great solution for these problems and Netscape and then Sun Directory Server were the industry best solutions. They still are today. However, in this space alone there has been considerable evolution. Virtual directories, directory proxies, Active Directory Synchronization are all essential components of best of breed directory server product's. Oracle Directory Services Plus is a good example.
The fuel behind this tremendous evolution is the business environment in which these solutions exist. There is no magic in figuring out these key business trends. Organizations face increased threats from global security risks internally and externally.
You had to bury your head in the sand to not notice the fact that these threats have landed some of the greatest IT organizations and governments in prime-time analysis on CNN or on the front page of the major news portals. The global economic slowdown has caused business to seek better value from the products they have already purchased. Increased government scrutiny and regulation has fueled compliance projects and organizations to ensure business and IT audits can be signed off by the CTO and CFO of major organizations. And, the CTO and CFO don't want surprises so they have funded projects and purchased solutions to ensure they stay in compliance ---No Surprises!
At Oracle, meeting these challenging problems with innovation is the name of the game. At the same time, we strive to provide the most complete solutions based on standards for our customers. This is why we are excited about our event next week. At this webinar we are taking a "Giant Leap Forward In Identity Management". Amit Jasuja, Vice President of Identity Management and Security at Oracle, will be sharing the latest news from Oracle on why we believe we are uniquely positioned to solve these business problems for the best organizations on the planet.
