Identity Management is the corner stone of Governance and more so in the case of SOA.
SOA interactions impose tremendous complexity on being able to make each interaction accountable from user access standpoint and unlike Identity in monolith applications; Identity for each interaction will have to be brokered effectively.
It may be useful to plan and perhaps deploy Identity Management early in the cycle of SOA readiness and more importantly the SOA blueprint should capture protection in the form of accountability for both service consumer and provider – just like the way it does for Interoperability, service discoverability and predictability of service performance.
I thought this may be a useful discussion for many CIO’s. During several meetings around Governance this point emerged as one very important subject. I spoke on similar lines at an IDC event in Doha because of the special interest expressed by attending CIOâ€™s.
Please post your comments and thoughts, we could all learn from experiences of many.
Here too my paper got selected and am speaking at the Bangalore event.
The topic is same as the one I spoke at INTEROP but this time around, I will touch base on â€œService Orientation for the Enterprise Cloudâ€. You may wonder, cloud is all about service orientation anyway so what would SOC (my musings on SOx, after SOI & SOM) – Service Oriented Cloud – be about.
As cloud definitions and perspectives evolve, we found our way to explain what goes within and beyond.
Since I could not create one for our way of SOI/SOM, I borrowed this one and is the closest we are to. This is something I otherwise keep saying with product neutralism; however would never mind using Cisco technology in our stack to SOI. Go thru by pressing the replay button…
Next week Cisco would announce their Unified Computing strategy codenamed “California”. These are blade servers that would sit right in middle of the Data Centre unlike all other Cisco products that found place in the network closet.
This in good sense is SOI we wanted to achieve and were seeking product maturity for levels of automation it would demand.
In our definition of SOI Orchestration is most vital and hopefully would soon be available across all Data Centre components. I am upbeat about the Cisco announcement.
I was in Dubai on the last weekend of August, hosted by Symantec for their Partner Event called – Partner Engage 2008.
It was nicely done event.
We were conferred the award – Partner for Emerging Solutions. This is well deserved because it resonates with our focus on IT Automation and our SOM (Services Oriented Management) strategy.
SOM is the cornerstone of SOI and we have been able to successfully develop blue print for customers that brings enormous visibility into their Enterprise Infrastructure assisting making informed decisions. The relationship between CIâ€™s (Configuration Items) is key to our SOM approach including users (is user a CI? Yes!).
The award by Symantec is to recognize us in helping customers offer technology; processes and sustainable methodology in building the blocks that will make them Adaptive Enterprise.
Entitlement Management (EM) pitched as something that delivers the layer outside applications to deal with entitlements which otherwise is within any application is the best direction in making SOA and SOI a greater business driver.
It is in real sense evolution of Secure Access Management with granularity that all lines of business with their applications would demand.
We have deployed Identity Management and/or Access Management solutions for few customers and I keep hearing about the business benefits they realized. Now if I think of EM for these customers and many others (with whom we are currently planning) will bring even greater benefits.
IDM and Secure Access Management are best known ways to scale the Enterprise Infrastructure among other things as Businesses demand quick ramp up. Entitlement Management will not just help scaling but will bring the flexibility in enforcing granular controls running as a shared service layer.

Quite catchy -Â Cisco way to Unified Fabric Architectureâ€¦ Its promise was to deliver flexibility across Physical, Virtual and Cloud environments for any application â€“ now promises enhancements for new age massively scalable Data Centres to deal with Big Data/Hadoop environments and bare-metal deployments. These data centres have massive blade density and […]
The rapidly growing use of Tablets by Enterprise users is making it imperative they get anywhere any device access to all applications. Anytime is implicit. Many Businesses are unprepared with such sudden rise in on-demand access by unconventional devices. Access to Business applications had been in some form tied down to desktops/laptop hardware and operati […]

This Morning I decided will blog about 8 points that to my mind seem some kind of predictions and just then saw a Google Alert message that had 14 predictions from Chirag Mehta and Wang. They said more than what I was sure and could not have agreed more – then just copeid them over […]
Not one CIO or CTO is avoiding the thought of cloud adoption â€“ plain truth. There could be some who do not have a Business-IT posture to adopt cloud early but nevertheless are sitting on a transformation blueprint that is made with cloud and just cloud in the mind. Among the thought leaders who have […]
Teaching and Learning Engineering is not going to be same anymore in India. Some initiatives are redefining them and among these NPTEL is one. We are proud to be associated with VTU in Karnataka assisting them in establishing their on-demand video lecture provisioning system â€“ connected with NPTEL and in-house studio. We used a uniquely […]
