implementation of a simple Identity Management program can be executed in twelve weeks – about half as long as the quickest deployment of a customized solution.I have special interest in this area. (Last week, Identropy announced the expansion of its off-premise managed identity services offering (iMIS) by adding support for Novell Identity Manager.) What's interesting about Watson SCS's play is that they're opting to offer a fully managed service, hosted off-site. A few days ago, I was speaking to a colleague at another integrator who recently pulled the plug on their off-site offering, for reasons I've already discussed.
Anyhow, it's great to hear more offerings in this space. It validates what we've been hearing from our clients: Why is this stuff so painful to implement and manage?
Welcome to the party, Watson SCS...looking forward to seeing you out in the field.
