Parent Track


Life Management Platforms, somtimes (misleadingly) called "Personal Data (Storage)", or "Personal Clouds" or "VRM" if focused on customer/vendor relationships, will turn the way we use the Internet upside down and make privacy and reliably secure exchange of information a fundamental layer of any networked interaction. Business models based on the exploration of personal data and on user tracking will fail. Join us at EIC 2013 to discuss the business models of the privacy centered post-facebook era.

Secure Communication Ecosystem as Part of the Life Management Infrastructure
Nadya Onishchenko, MetaSociety Concept Group

In this session, we will try to complement the goals of the Life Management concept with some thoughts on the structure of the corresponding communication ecosystem. The concept of "Life Management" was introduced by Martin Kuppinger defines the set of long-term goals for the current and ongoing development of numerous identification, authentication, and personal information protection systems. This concept places many new features, facilities, and situations under consideration. The...

From Risk to Value: The Future of Social Media and their Role as Catalysts in Enterprise IAM
Jörg Heuer, Deutsche Telekom Laboratories • Mario Hoffmann, Fraunhofer AISEC • Kim Cameron, • Doc Searls, Customer Commons • Craig Burton, KuppingerCole

When looking at the challenges the IT departments of organizations are faced with today, then the Computing Troika (Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Social Computing) and the related “Identity Explosion”, the need to deal with far more identities than ever before, are high on that list. Dealing with identities and their access is becoming increasingly complex in modern environments. On the other hand, Information Security is a major concern not only of IT but the Business, up...

Architecture and functionality of the "EIC App"

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2013 Time: 16:30-17:30

Architecture and functionality of the "EIC App"
Craig Burton, KuppingerCole • William Lovegrove, Release Mobile • James Baker, Microsoft

In this session, two different Life Management prototypes will be shown. The first one is the combination of a personal data store (based on Windows Azure Graph Storage WAGS), some event-driven logic (Kynetx KRL) and a mobile device and be transformed into a system that is a harbinger of a Life Management Platform. We show the architecture and functionality of the EIC App. Key concepts of this prototype are that the WAGS and KRL components could be any vendors store of logic.

Qiy Foundation´s Infrastructure
Marcel van Galen, Qiy Foundation

The second one is based on the Dutch Qiy Foundation´s infrastructure. These are just examples. KuppingerCole advocates freedom of choice to the customer and does not promote vendor lock-in.
