Time for another Burton Catalyst and this year we'll be doing a Monty Python Holy Grail theme. The first line I think of is "Bring Out Your Dead". It will be a great time and you won't want to miss it. This is Bianca's last event for us and we had to get her out of retirement to do it :-). If you've been to our Catalyst events in the last three years she was the one behind them. She is better known to us as "Producer Bianca" since she produces the Identity Management Buzz podcasts that Brandon and I do, and she also writes the blog. Interesting sidenote, my good friend Pat's brother George was an extra in the film. How cool is that!
We'll have all kinds of demos, including: Identity Manager and Approva, DSEE's virtual directory and new web console, and Federation Manager. We'll also demo our open source projects OpenDS, showing off the APP/Atom work, and OpenSSO, showing off the new Sun OpenID implementation. We will also have several partners in the suite with us, like Deloitte and Vaau with our new Enterprise Role Lifecycle Management offering, and PwC with their Foundations offering.
But what you won't want to miss is a special appearance by our President, CEO and star blogger, Jonathan Schwartz, some time around 6:30. He'll talk a bit about how important Identity Management is to Sun, answer a few questions from the crowd. If you're lucky you can get a picture with him.
If you're attending Catalyst you'll definitely want to stop by, listen to Jonathan, grab a hunk of stuffed pig and check out our demos.
