Not that Ping shouldn't attempt to expand its marketshare or make money, but one should ask whether the right solution is have folks over at Microsoft figure out how to turn Active Directory into a provisioning mechanism. Why couldn't you have ADFS take care of SaaS provisioning activities? While I know that Mike Jones, Kim Cameron, Jackson Shaw and others would probably not think about provisioning in this manner, there are many enterprise customers that would think it was a sane approach.
I like when bloggers provide insight into topics but really hate when they assume we don't care about the detail. I would love to see the exact documents that he refers to (in a sanitized way) and not just summaries of what they contain. If anyone else has copies of federation agreements they have used, I would love to see real copies.
Sure, the answer is always quantity over quality. Does it make sense to bring on even more folks to build SOA's incorrectly? There are very few high quality sources of information in the form of books in the marketplace and the analysts are providing horrific guidance. This feels like a scenario of more people to a late project makes it later. Joe McKendrick and others should lead with enumerating the competencies required and not just the count.
I couldn't have said it better myself...
