Product Brief: Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager

Report Details

On Monday the 23rd of March, Microsoft announced that it would - again - delay the launch of ILM 2, the "Identity Lifecycle Manager". The release was now pushed back one whole year, to give Microsoft more time to "validate ILM in long-running live deployments before release". As can be expected, this announcement has caused a considerable amount of reactions, ranging from delight to frustration. The blogosphere and newswires soaked up the news and were buzzing with comments, and even outright speculation.
 
Kuppinger Cole has been asked by journalists to provide an opinion as well, and after some time of talking to different parties and watching the reactions, and circling back to Microsoft, we wanted to give our quick take on how the product actually stands within its competitive field, what this delay is about and what it may mean for customers, the industry and Microsoft itself. As of 17 April 2009, Microsoft has announced a new name for what used to be ILM “2” – it is hence to be known as “Forefront Identity Manager”.

Some Perspective on Self-Sovereign Identity

Identity isn't hard when you don't always use it. For example, here in the natural world we are anonymous—literally, nameless—in most of our public life, and this is a handy thing. Think about it: none of us walks down the street wearing a name badge, and it would be strange to do so. A [...]

Privacy & the European Data Protection Regulation

The EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), becoming effective May 25, 2018, will have a global impact not only on data privacy, but on the interaction between businesses and their customers and consumers. Organizations must not restrict their GDPR initiatives to technical changes in consent management or PII protection, but need to review how they onboard customers and consumers and how to convince these of giving consent, but also review the amount and purposes of PII they collect. The impact of GDPR on businesses will be far bigger than most currently expect. [...]
