My “Migration Toolbox” is coming together nicely

At TEC I’ll be presenting a session on migrating MIIS/ILM to FIM 2010. The meaty goodness├é┬áof the session will be a collection of scripts that can help with analysing the environment ahead of the migration, with getting through some tricky migration steps that can often occur, and with general post-migration confirmations. The session should be…

TEC 2012 – I’m speaking!

Once again I’ll be off to TEC US this year, though this time travelling from Australia, and this time in the company of my collegue Bob Bradley. I’m presenting a session on MIIS/ILM migration to FIM. Not the sexiest topic I admit, but certainly one with the potential to be far knottier than you may…

Upcoming Speaking Engagements

I will be delivering two sessions at TEC on managing BPOS and Office 365 with FIM. The first session “Head in the Clouds” will include an overview and discussion of the IdM tools available with BPOS and Office 365 and where they are (and are not!) applicable. I’ll also be giving lots of examples from…

Speaking at expertDay in Lausanne on the 15th of June

I will be talking about how├é┬ávarious products in the Identity spectrum fit together, focusing in particular on how the move to Cloud applications├é┬ámakes├é┬álocal├é┬ámanagement of users and groups├é┬áeven more critical. I have a neat little demo where I create a…

A couple of other IdM products that I saw at TEC

I visited all the sposors at TEC and I particularly wanted to post about two of them as their products fit into the user provisioning and lifecycle sphere. This post is based on short demos and discussions with the company reps, so I can’t claim any knowledge about how well they would scale, or run…

My TEC 2010 Highlights

At TEC you really can learn from the best. Some of the speakers may not be the most polished, but at least you know they’re talking from a position of genuine experience. My top three sessions this year were the ones where I felt I learnt the most.

TEC 2009 – a personal roundup

The US TEC 2009 is now over, and what a great week it’s been. This was the first year that Quest were running the show, and as far as I could tell it was very much business as usual for the conference, with the welcome addition of an Exchange track to the usual Directory and…

ILM 2 release date put back – A WHOLE YEAR!

I’m at TEC 2009 in Las Vegas at the moment, and it was officially announced by Microsoft today that the release date for ILM 2 is now Q1 2010, as opposed to the previously publicised date of “any day now”. We should be getting an RC1 version in Q3 this year. I asked if there…
