EIC 2011 Identity Management World Café: Integrated IdM - and how to get there
May 11th, 10:30 - 16:30
In The World Café you get to create the agenda, the data, and the presentation as we try to harness the wisdom of the crowd. There'll be tables set up for each of the general areas of IdM/IAM implementation strategies (Single vendor, Best of breed, in the Datacenter, in the Cloud) - multiple tables for each. Sprinkled around will be vendors, analysts, consultants and other experts to answer factual questions or spur discussion. Every 30-40 minutes we'll ask attendees to switch tables. The entire session will run about 4 hours, but we don't expect people to be with us for all of that time. You can come and go in small chunks, go out to another session, then come back again.
After the session closes, there'll be a final "roundup" session, in which we present the accumulated wisdom that was gathered throughout the afternoon. Our hope is that there'll be nuggets that you can apply to your situation amidst the rich vein of data that's collected.
It's no longer enough to have part of the solution, your organization needs it all - Provisioning, AuthN, AuthX, RBAC, Entitlement mgmt, governance, IaaS, etc. - needs it now and needs it to work together seamlessly without breaking the budget, or breaking security.
Dave Kearns will tell you what you need, and why. Later we'll all brainstorm to figure out the best way to deliver what's needed - vendor suite, best of breed, datacenter apps or something in the Cloud. After a kickoff session, Attendees will gather in small groups with vendor reps and noted facilitators in a coffeehouse setting to build a "Best Practices" document that will then be presented to the entire attendee group.
As a conversational process, the World Café is an innovative yet simple methodology for hosting conversations about questions that matter. These conversations link and build on each other as people move between groups, cross-pollinate ideas, and discover new insights into the questions or issues that are most important.
