The Burton Group IdPS team has a new member and a new name.
As of today we’ve added Robin Wilton as our newest analyst. A lot of you know Robin from his work on identity, privacy, and security at Sun Microsystems and the Liberty Alliance. Most recently, Robin has headed his own identity and privacy consulting firm, Future Identity, and served as the global privacy and public policy director for the Kantara Initiative.
Robin will continue his work on privacy here at Gartner, joining Ian Glazer as the European half of our privacy practice. He’ll also be taking on our PKI coverage, as well as other topics as we move forward. Robin is a great addition to the team, and we’re very excited to have him; if you’re at Catalyst next week, we’ll be happy to introduce you to him.
We’re also changing our name. From now on we’re the Gartner IT1 Identity and Privacy team. Don’t fret; this is a branding exercise, and everything about our coverage and team structure will remain the same. You can still call us IdPS if you want to. Think of it as a nickname.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at Catalyst in San Diego next week. If you haven’t registered yet, there’s still time. It’s going to be our best event ever, so don’t miss it!
