What is EIC (European Identity Conference)?
With more than 450 attendees from 23 countries and 50 exhibitors, the European Identity Conference (EIC) 2008 in Munich has been the major platform in Europe to create, support and foster the dialog between GRC and identity management thought leaders and users, but as well between thought leaders themselves, between Europeans and Americans, vendors, vendor partners and users, between Open Source initiatives and the market.
EIC is the place to meet with enterprise technologists, thought leaders and experts to learn about, discuss and shape the market in most significant technology topics such as Identity Management, Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). With its world class list of speakers, a unique mix of best practices presentations, panel discussions, thought leadership statements and analyst views, EIC has become an absolute must-attend event for enterprise IT leaders from all over Europe and has been intensively covered in the news, in many blog entries, newsletters and Kuppinger Cole Reports.
