IAM Success Tips

I just finished reading Corbin Links' IAM Success Tips, Volume 1 and really think it would be a great resource for any new IdM initiative your organization might be starting. I know that I will try to implement many of the suggestions in the book as we move forward with our project. Many of the "bad" examples in the book -- the things not to do -- brought back some memories for me... I hope that this project at the U of R can avoid many of those common pitfalls. Things like not understanding your current environment, and expecting a vendor's software package to solve all the IdM problems that have grown out of bad business processes.

I look forward to the imminent release of Volume 2 (which, according to this post, is slated for tomorrow!)
