I was just in Boston for a meeting with the product managers about our upcoming plans for OpenSSO, FAM, Identity Management and Role Manager at Sun. All I can say is that there are some exciting things happening and I get to work with a dynamic group of people. I was finally able to meet Nick Crown who is running the GRC and Role Management product at Sun. It was nice to put a face with a name as I am one of the lucky people at Sun that gets to work from home in Monterey and although I have interacted with Nick via the phone, IM and Skype it was the first time I had a chance to meet Nick in person. Here is a recent article that Nick and Mark Herring was written on how Role Manager and our Identity Management solutions fit into an IT GRC strategy.
While in Boston we got a chance to meet Andras Cse. We were able to brief him on some of our upcoming plans and he told us about some of the research that he will be releasing later this quarter on Role Manager.
Boston is a great city but I have to root for my Lakers even though they are down 2-0. However, we are back in LA so a little home cooking will do us good.
