Sun Versus Ping: An Epic Battle

Many people ask me about the differences between Sun and Ping. Rather than write a long blog explaining the differences, I thought I'd just set-up time to talk with Ping and record a video podcast that people can watch. Check it out and learn!

Comments:

You marketing people are so clever, so cryptic. And Ping's delivery is so deadpan.
Careful, he might leave Sun to do comedies with Ben Stiller or Adam Sandler.

Ping. You rock. One vs. 35,000! I love it, bring it on! Ping, if you want to come work for Ping, give me a call.

I guess Ping got their attention. Sun seems a little frightened. If Ping wasn't a threat, then they could ignore us. I guess they can't afford to ignore us.

I think Daniel Raskin says it all at the very end when he wonders aloud how such a small company as Ping Identity can handle identities better than the behemoth that is Sun. He's "just blown away. [Sun] must not be doing something right. I just don't get it." That's exactly right, Daniel.

[Trackback] A few days ago, someone at Sun made a video that poked some fun at Ping Identity (disclosure, I'm on their advisory board--I think--it's been a long time). Ping fired back with a humorous video of their own. Heck,...

[Trackback] Last week, a Sun blogger posted Sun versus Ping: An Epic Battle and included a video. The video is cute for about 30 seconds, then goes on to kick the dead horse to a fine paste. (seriously, it would’ve been funnier shorter) The Ping folks couldn...

Hhhmmm, really and that should sway me? The only thing this has done is for me to give Ping a closer look. I agree there is a positioning issue, but if you want cloud identity federation you Sun guys are NOT it.

Sorry your Waveset aquired IDM has never been design for it so looking at the big picture there is a place for both, but it seems you believe a clug will help you play well.

In addition I think what you did with you poor Development Manager was very borderline to discrimination.
