Third Meeting: Chicago-Area Identity Management User Group

This past Thursday evening we had our third meeting. Sun hosted the meeting in their Itasca, IL office. The attendees included the local Sun Identity team, partners (Laurus Technologies) and users (United Airlines, Motorola, Kraft Foods, Northeastern Illinois University).

To "kick-off" the meeting, the Sun Identity team asked the User Group community for help ... Leveraging the wikis.sun.com site, they started a new collaboration site focused at sharing Identity Manager knowledge. http://wikis.sun.com/display/sunidmdev is a wiki site where registered users can share their workflows, forms, and other artifacts with the community.

Agenda:

6:00 - 6:30Greetings and Catered Dinner
6:30 - 6:45Introductions
6:45 - 7:30What's New with Identity Manager and Role Manager
7:30 - 7:45Break
7:45 - 8:30Integrating Identity Manager and Access Manager (OpenSSO)
8:30 - 9:00User Group business

The first presentation was given by the Identity folks at Sun. They gave an overview of Identity Manager 8.0 and Role Manager 4.0. They covered the new features, integration points and a roadmap. The second presentation was given by Laurus Technologies. They gave a presentation and demonstration related to how you can integrate Identity Manager with Access Manager (they actually used OpenSSO, very cool).

During the "business" part of the meeting, we talked about how to improve the User Group. Here is what the members asked for:

  • Want to hear customer stories
  • Have meetings during business hours
  • Allow remote attendance (webex)
We updated out list of future meeting topics. We had two customers offer to give a presentation on what they are doing with Identity Manager. The next meeting has been set for Thursday November 13th, 2008. It will be a breakfast meeting held at the Sun Itasca IL office, a webex session will be available those users that can't attend in-person. The current agenda (subject to change):
8:30 - 9:00Greetings and Breakfast
9:00 - 9:45Customer Story: Motorola

Hi Scott:

The user group agenda looks great; do you happen to know if there is an equivalent group in Vancouver BC?

In response to the previous comment, we host a Canadian Identity User group summit. Last year it was in Toronto, but perhaps we can move it out west this year.

Please drop me a note at: warren dot strange at sun com and we can chat.
