Cloud and IdM Together Again – at OpenWorld


It’s that time of year again – when my blog goes silent because I have been heads down preparing for Oracle’s event of the year. And this year’s OpenWorld is jam packed with all sorts of goodness. The lineup in the Identity Management track is loaded with information, especially for anyone looking to learn more about the recent 11g release – you can see the full list of IdM sessions here.

I’ll be following up on my session last year with another one on the topic of Cloud and Identity Management. In my session on “Building a Strong Foundation for Your Cloud with Identity Management“, I’ll describe how enterprises can maximize the security and benefits of their cloud investment by putting in place a comprehensive cloud identity management practice. Identity is the central component not only in securing access to services in the cloud but also in accelerating the adoption of cloud computing and maximizing business agility in leveraging cloud services. I’ll talk about some common cloud identity use cases and describe solutions, tools, and best practices that can help strengthen and future-proof your cloud strategy. Come by if you’re planning to be at OpenWorld next week.

  • Session ID: S317276
  • Date: Wednesday, September 22 2010
  • Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm
  • Room: Moscone South 309

And for a surprise bonus, come by the same room (Moscone South 309) on Monday, September 20 at 11am for the session “Oracle Identity Management 11g Update and Overview“. I’m not going to give away anything, but there will be some pretty cool tech on display.

To my fellow Twitterati, if you can’t make it to OpenWorld, or if you will be there and want to be more involved, use and monitor the hashtags #OOW10 and #IDM for insight and to discuss with folks from the IdM team. And if you are around at OpenWorld and want to meet up the old fashioned way (aka “in person”), feel free to reach out to me on Twitter. It’s going to be an extremely busy show, but I would love to meet up.
