Second Meeting: Chicago-Area Identity Management User Group

Last night was our second meeting. Sun hosted the meeting in their Itasca, IL office. We had two great presentations giving by Partners that are experts in Identity Management. It was great to see the users asking questions and sharing experiences. After the formal meeting ended, a number of the users and partners stayed late, told stories and discussed solutions. The community is growing.

This meeting is about bringing together a community of users, vendors and partners with common interests in identity management. The group focuses on provisioning, access control, and user repository technologies that support business processes related to the management of identity data. The following technologies were discussed during the meeting:

  • Identity Manager
  • Access Manager
  • Directory Server
  • Role Manager
  • Java CAPS
