Is SCIM a Scam?
A short introduction into the concepts of the Simple Cloud Identity Management (SCIM) Standard and why we may need it.
Simple Cloud Identity Management (SCIM)
SCIM (Simple Cloud Identity Management) is one of the most popular standards in IAM these days. I shall replace SPML (Simple Provisioning Markup Language), building on a REST-based API. However the question remains whether it is more about porting the type of API or really a breakthrough for provisioning to the cloud. And the question remains whether it really will become adopted as a mainstream approach. Besides this, any good standard supports all of IT, not only the cloud. So what does SCIM provide for the on-premise IT?
