A great response by Mark Wilcox on integrating products and enterprise applications with Active Directory. It is interesting though that Oracle has taken the thought leadership lead away from Microsoft and has acknowledged that authorization is a bigger problem for enterprises in many ways over authentication.
This message is equally revelant to not only enterprise architecture teams, but also the folks who are responsible for procurement. An enterprise can't have any form of conversation of integrity when talking about buy vs build if they aren't also placing security requirements on their software vendors. I am curious at some level, whether vendors such as Lombardi Software, Sun, Quest and others use static analysis tools as part of their own SDLC? If so, I wonder if folks could chime in and provide comments on how it is working for them?
Jackson Shaw will be discussing consolidation of non-windows system directories into Active Directory which others should pay close attention to...
It would be great if Cote of Redmonk where to blog on this topic...
Great article. I especially love the point that their solutions will save you time and money. I wonder if folks realize that if all sales people where telling the truth, that I would be the only IT person on the planet and even then I would only work ten minutes a day.
Good to hear that someone else realizes that AOL and Yahoo don't accept OpenID as a credential to access their own web site. This is all about command and control! I wonder why Johannes Ernst, Dick Hardt, Ashish Jain and others haven't talked about this behavior?
All those graduates that work for McKinsey, Accenture and Diamond Consultants upon graduating from college weren't expecting to run into information overload.
