So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Good Night


Well, my friends, it is time for me to say goodbye. It's been a wonderful 5 years at Sun. As many probably suspected, I will not be joining the Oracle Identity team.

These past five years have been the best professional experiences in my life. I had a blast working with the Java Enterprise System team and Sun's systems management team, but nothing beats my experience working with the most talented Identity Management team in the world. Oracle is inheriting THE BEST Identity products available and I wish them luck on their strategy and direction.

Although I'm very happy that this process has finally come to a close, I am sad to see Sun fading away. I believe the environment that Sun fostered was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I appreciate the experience and have tremendous gratitude for all that it offered me.

If you want to continue following my blog, I plan to continue to write on identity at www.smokingmonkey.org. Also, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn.

EU Clears Oracle-Sun Deal


Wow. It's finally here. I know it's a good thing that this is closing, but can't help but feel sad. Despite all of its problems, I don't think we will ever see an amazing company like Sun again. A few more days to "assimilation."

The European Commission has approved under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of US hardware and software vendor Sun Microsystems Inc. by Oracle Corporation, a US enterprise software company. After an in-depth examination, launched in September 2009 (see IP/09/1271 ), the Commission concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area (EEA) or any substantial part of it.

New Blog at SmokingMonkey.org


Today, I imported all entries from this blog into my new WordPress blog at smokingmonkey.org. I'm using GoDaddy to host and installed my own instance of Wordpress. I plan to double-post content to both sites for the forseeable future. Figured it was time to have my own space to blog so I could be more irreverent then ever!

Express Scripts Accelerates Provisioning by up to 64% with Sun Identity Management


On the customer front -- Express Scripts has deployed Sun's Identity Management Portfolio to implement a centralized identity management solution that automates provisioning for more than 100 systems based on an employee’s job function or operational role. The solution has created a centralized identity directory that maps multiple corporate identities on disparate systems that are each associated with a single employee.
