I haven’t had much time for blogging lately as all spare time is going on TechEd prep. I’m very pleased this year to be be presenting two different but complimentary sessions on FIM Best Practises at both TechEd New Zealand and TechEd Australia. I hope people will go away understanding that IAM projects have their challenges, and FIM has its difficulties, but if you stick to certain guidelines you will massively increase your chance of success.
Here are the outlines:
SIM322 FIM Best Practices – Architecting Identity Solutions that really work!
Best practices in the Identity Management world come hard-won, and are often discovered only after going down paths that seemed perfectly reasonable at the time, only to find they don’t scale or adapt to new business requirements. Projects fail for many non-technical reasons – politics, resistance to change, poor data quality and unrealistic expectations. In this session get the inside track from someone who’s been architecting and delivering Identity solutions with FIM (and its predecessors) for 7 years, and in many different environments. The session offers practical advice on preparing the non-technical landscape for your IdM project, and on architecting your solution to really benefit from the strengths of Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2.
SIM323 FIM Best Practices – Technical Deep-Dive
This session focuses on technical best practices in deploying the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 Synchronization Service, Portal and Password management components. The recommendations presented come from years of implementation experience and are not merely theoretical. This session will help you develop your own IdM solution that is scalable, redundant and fit for purpose within your organisation.
