Register Today For Free Webinar: Identity Analytics ROI

Is your Identity Compliance project a GIANT Headache?  If so, then we have the little blue pill for your  compliance headache.  The reason why many organizations experience pain in the compliance programs they run is because of the lack of automated tools, impact to productivity and lack of ongoing actionable information.  I have seen this first hand.   Organizations usually rely upon project managers and excel spreadsheets collect information from business units and project teams.  This then leads to massive efforts to fill in information and send them back to the central team for documentation and reporting to the auditors.  Ultimately, this information is old before it is collated into the binders and the report is issued.  However, the real result is usually a GIANT HEADACHE for everyone involved.

As Identity theft outpaces any other theft and security challenges for organizations, the problem needs a more efficient solution with better processes and better tools.  Business leaders will believe in investment when they can see better utilization of key resources, better on-going information, proven segregation of duties, and ultimately better security. 

Niel Gandhi, has the "Advil" for your compliance headache with Oracle Identity Analytics.  Register here for the FREE webinar on the ROI of using Identity Analytics.  He is has years of experience solving these problems for organizations around the world.  Additionally, he has extensive experience as Principal Product Manager, Identity Analytics.  Here are a couple of the topics that he will cover in the event:

  • Automate critical identity-based controls such as attestation and segregation of duties
  • Analyze, mine, and correlate user roles for compliant and efficient user access
  • Build comprehensive reports for audit, compliance, and business purposes
  • Utilize business-friendly compliance dashboards and metrics
  • Give a 360-degree view of user’s access and achieve rapid compliance

However, the ultimate goal of his presentation is to make sure you have concrete ways to help you solve your Compliance Headache without breaking the bank.  Hope to see you there!

Webinar: Identity Management and Healthcare

The  Sun Identity Management team will be giving a webinar next Wednesday to discuss the very important topic of Identity Management and healthcare.  As the healthcare legislation moves through congress the increase of 36M patients on healthcare providers, insurance companies, and patients will be profound.  The cost savings projected by the bills will rely on IT systems to provide increased access to information to drive productivity gains.  As we have seen with recent high profile identity security breeches at hospitals identity security is critical in making sure the right people have access to the appropriate information, that information must be shared with all members of the value chain securely.

Sun's Identity Management Suite provides a powerful package of solutions to help with storing identity information with Directory Server Enterprise Edition;  managing authorization, federation and web services security with OpenSSO; providing provisioning solutions with Identity Manager; and, defining and managing role based access control with Role Manager.

Join this free Webinar to learn how Sun's identity management solutions can help your organization to:

  • Automate management of digital identities for other providers, patients, physicians, clinicians, and payors Provide single sign-on (SSO) and secure federated access to privacy-regulated healthcare information while adhering to strict mandates
  • Enable delegated, self-service password management
  • Comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), internal security policies, and corporate governance policies with complete auditing and reporting capabilities

Gartner IAM, Nov. 9-11: Identity Management Isn't Hard

Next week, Nov. 9-11, the Identity Management Team travels down to Gartner Identity Access Management conference to showcase two of our latest releases DSEE 7 and Role Manager 5.  Gartner IAM is a great event because it not only gather's together experienced practitioners in the identity management space but has a number of events that are small enough that you can have quality conversations about real problems.  Last year, Verizon presented at this conference on the Directory and OpenSSO implementation that serves 50M users.  The presentation is a great example of the proven expertise that Sun brings to Identity Management and the proven extranet scale our products can support---not a marketing benchmark.

Our team has taken a different approach to this even this year and we are participating in Gartner's Learning Lab's.  Vendors, customer's and identity specialists are encouraged to come-by in a classroom style and learn about specific problem's Sun's product, partner's and customer's are using to solve their identity business problems.  This is crucial today as the cost of failure or doing nothing rises exponentially.  The best way to ensure success is to learn from real-world implementations not marketing based slideware presentations.  This is why we have assembled not just the product teams but partners and real customer's to share their experience in these "learning labs".

The other great thing about Gartner IAM is that there are usually a few different ways to combine great industry expertise and a little fun.  On Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 9:00pm you can meet the Sun Identity team at the Hard Rock Rooftop bar for drinks and conversation.  The first 50 people get a wristband for free drinks.  Identity management isn't hard so come to the Hard Rock to find out how to make it easy!

Webinar: Government Identity Management (Register Today)

Identity management in government is a very important topic as it crosses a number of domains.  There are a number of issues as government's across the world pursue e-Government initiatives.  Norway is a great example as they have launched a portal to allow citizens to opt into services that they wish to consume from the government (e.g. postal, doctor, etc.).  The government portal in Norway uses OpenSSO.  This is only one of the ways in which Sun is helping governments further information sharing and reduce the cost of providing citizens and organizations the services they need to be successful.

If you are interested in hearing more about the different way's Sun can help governments help solve Identity Management issues such as the following, please attend the following webinar.

  • Secure control over information access by dynamic and diverse user populations

FamFest08 Using Agile to create Demo's

This week has been a lot of fun.  I spent the week in Las Vegas with a great team of Sales Engineers, Software Engineers from Federation Access Manager and our product marketing team.  The goal of the event was to create three customer focused demo's to illustrate how Federation Access Manager can be used by our customers.  I recently moved from the xVM Ops Center team to the Access Manager product marketing team so this was my first opportunity to meet the extended team.  What a talented team.

Terry did a great job of preparing the team for the event by holding several meetings prior to arriving in Las Vegas.  The team worked on developing high-level use cases.  Once in Vegas the team gelled quickly getting to work using agile processes and programming methods to get something tangible to demo via the first day.  I have attended other events with similar objectives and they have not been as productive.  What was really impressive was the hand on nature and knowledge sharing that occurred between the three critical constituencies. The team did blow off some steam at ESPN Zone and Jay-z's new club 40/40.  Everyone left thinking "I wish I could have one of those screens for my superbowl party". 

As Pat Patterson pointed out in his blog earlier in the week here, a number of the team already blog so you can get access to the latest mindshare of the team. 

Lastly, if you are interested in hearing an interesting review of Ping Identity Daniel Raskin was able to put together a great podcast with Ping himself.
