As I mentioned in my SCN Status, I'm happy to say that I'll be speaking this year at d-code in Las Vegas! If you're planning to go, please do your best to attend ITM118 - SAP Identity Management – Experience from a Customer Implementation Project. I don't know the exact schedule yet, but I'll be sure to let you all know. You can find more information here.
While the title speaks about Implementation, I'll have some good information for folks in all phases of an IDM project from a Best practices based on my 10 years expereince with IDM going back to the MaXware Identity Center. As they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same, and some things about implementing IDM haven't changed much, if at all.
Also, did you know the name of our favorite SAP module has changed? Based on a post from harald.nehring, we are now referred to as SAP Identity Management (SAP IDM) I like it. Much more compact and efficient.
So let's see over the years it's been:
MaXware MetaCenter (~2003)
MaXware Identity Center (~2004)
SAP NetWeaver Identity Management (2007)
SAP Identity Management (2014)
Nice to see the product is still changing and maturing. There's some other things changing with regards to SAP IDM and I'll be speaking more about that soon.
