It’s about Provisioning, not provisioning

In 2010, I gave a (in retrospect somewhat optimistic) talk at the Catalyst conference in which I described a pull-based architecture for account provisioning. SAML was a central part of that architecture, especially in supporting Just-In-Time  (JIT) Provisioning, which I was sure was going to be important to the evolution of enterprise cloud applications.
