Talking Identity Services at OpenWorld

I was hoping to find some time to dig a little deeper into some of the themes, conversations and ideas that were floating around the halls at DIDW last week. Unfortunately, time was not a luxury I had this week. I am writing this aboard a flight to San Francisco, as I head there to attend the annual Oracle OpenWorld conference.

Oracle’s big shindig is the place to come to if you want to find out about all that is going on in the world of Oracle. And this year is no different. The conference is bigger than ever (I hear upwards of 43,000 will be attending), and there will be some big announcements at the keynotes. Oracle Identity Management will be well covered at the show, both on the demogrounds and in the many sessions, where IdM got its own track.

Not surprisingly, I will be speaking on the topic of Identity Services. My 3rd session on the topic continues the discussion I started 2 years ago in a session on application-centric identity management. If you are going to be at OpenWorld, then definitely come check out my session, as I delve into the practicalities of building an Identity Services Platform for your enterprise.

Session ID: S298923
Session Title: Building an Identity Services Layer with Oracle Identity Management
Venue: Marriott
Room: Golden Gate C3
Date: Wednesday, 24th September 2008
Start Time: 09:00 am

During the session, I will present how one can go about deploying identity management in a way that enables the development of identity-enabled applications. I will also discuss some of the things I have learnt from participating in Burton Group’s Identity Services Working Group, my many conversations with the identirati at Catalyst and DIDW this year, and from my continued involvement in Project Fusion, which lays down the architecture for the next generation enterprise application. Unfortunately I drew the short straw and got the 9am shift, so there are sure to be people who won’t make it as they recover from their shenanigans the previous night. Hopefully I will still be on East Coast time, and sufficiently caffeinated 🙂

And as always, I will be twittering my observations from OpenWorld in real-time, so be sure to follow me for the latest. I hear there will be a number of interesting announcements.

See you in San Francisco.
