A Magic 8 Ball in the Sky: Federated, Distributed, and Cloud Externalized Authorization – Agenda Builder

03 December, 2012 (01:45 PM – 02:45 PM)

Externalized authorization has granted enterprise applications rich decision-making ability and ways of controlling who can do what with what kind of data. Although, identity management services have begun their inevitable migration to the cloud, authorization has lagged its peers.

  • To what extent is externalized authorization becoming mainstream?
  • What are the deployment patterns for externalized authorization with respect to cloud services?
  • What are the challenges of federated authorization?

Panel: National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace – Agenda Builder

05 December, 2012 (10:00 AM – 11:00 AM)

The goal of the panel is to introduce the works of some of the NSTIC pilot projects. Representatives from AARP, Health and Human Service’s Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), and Broadridge will discuss the nature of their involvement with NSTIC, the expected outcomes, and how the outcomes will impact the market. The audience will then get an opportunity to ask questions.

Closing Keynote: Putting Strategy Into Action – Agenda Builder

05 December, 2012 (11:15 AM – 12:15 PM)

In this informal panel and discussion, Gartner IAM analysts reveal their key take-aways from the conference. Key issues include: What trends have been revealed while talking to attendees? What should attendees do ASAP upon returning to the workplace? How best can attendees leverage their conference experience?

Lastly, I’ve got a few one on one sessions available. Use the Agenda Builder tool and get some of my time.

See you in Vegas!
