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.

Here's a link to the customer success story

IDM and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Nice video by resident slacker / sales engineer Paul Walker on how the Sun Identity Management suite can complement Sun's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). The demo shows how Sun can provide the whole stack from the operating system, smartcards, SunRay thin client device, desktop delivery mechanism and Identity Management (IdM) to offer a complete and secure VDI solution. The products used in this demo include the following (in no particular order) . . .

\* Sun OpenSSO Enteprise
\* Sun Identity Manager
\* Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition

Open Source Connectors for Sun Identity Manager

In our ever expanding effort to grow our open source identity community, Sun now has an open source initiative to support Sun Identity Manager. That's right, you heard it. Sun Identity Manager (IDM) has moved closer to the world of open source by launching the Identity Connectors Project, a new open-source alternative to Identity Manager's proprietary resource adapters.

The Identity Connector Project is an open source community focused solely on developing open source resource connectors to work with Sun Identity Manager. One of the biggest hurdles in the world of provisioning is keeping up with the endless cycle of new connectors needed to provision resources. The pipeline for creating new connectors is endless. The Identity Connectors Project eases this pain creating a strong community where Sun, system integrators, customers and even competitors can build open source connectors to work with Sun Identity Manager and other 3rd party products that choose to interoperate with the Identity Connector Framework.

Sign-up for the new project and begin contributing today!

New Sun Identity Management Website


Our Sun Identity Management website has a new look. Check it out at www.sun.com/identity.  Great job to all who pulled this together.



Spreading the Love Across Identity

Chief Muckity MuckIt's been a bit of a darkout period for me in the world of blogging, but I'm back now and better than ever.


My role has changed at Sun so I be focused more on talking about all of identity now rather than just OpenSSO. I'm now Chief Identity Strategist at Sun (Chief Muckity Muck?, Chief Slacker?) and I focus on the strategy for all of identity products -- Identity Manager, Role Manager, OpenSSO, Directory Server and OpenDS Standard Edition. Don't get me wrong . . .  OpenSSO is my baby and my favorite product of all, but I will now be spreading the love across the entire portfolio.


The part I struggled with most in writing this blog was how to communicate my new role without sounding like a total goof. I'm aware that titles that contain "Chief Anything" tend to lack humility and sound a little silly. So . . . feel free to let the jokes fly about my title (as the entire identity team has covered most of the jokes already). You can be assured, they will keep me humble. :-)


At any rate, stay tuned for more blogs from me on the world of Sun Identity and where it's headed.


Peace out!
