A few more random identity managment thoughts

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to Ash for the workshop on Monday... And add a few other thoughts:

Ash's Identity Management Rantings: It's About the Business...

  • "Identity management" as a goal in and of itself doesn't mean a lot. Concrete business requirements are necessary in order to have a project succeed.
  • It doesn't matter what you do on the back-end -- if the end users (and project sponsors) can't see tangible results that affect their day-to-day activities, all the process re-engineering and data clean-up in the world is going to go unnoticed and unappreciated.
  • For whatever reason, hearing the exact same thing come from an outside consultant actually sinks in with management, but this never seems to happen for internal people :)
