Catalyst's Session on Provisioning, "The Vortex of IdM"

The upcoming catalyst conference has what looks like an interesting session conducted by Burton Group's Lori Rowland on Provisioning. The following excerpt from the session description caught my eye:

Compliance and security concerns are driving provisioning solutions into enterprise customer environments, however the sophistication of these customer deployments are lagging behind technology advancements.

What struck me was that on most deployments we've completed, a ton of "customizations" were needed in order to satisfy the customer. By customizations, I mean changes that would qualify as outright upgrade features - and I've heard similar complaints from colleagues in the field. Any way you slice it, this session is a must-see.
