Identity & Access Management: Fundamental Prerequisites for Service-Oriented Architectures

This webinar will focus on ways to tackle the complex challenges that can arise in Identity Management when developing a Service-Oriented Architecture. Topics to be covered:

  • The role of Identity Management in SOA design and implementation
  • Identity mapping across multiple domains and enterprises
  • Assuring SOA security amidst diverse and heterogeneous Identity Management environments
  • Managing Identity in “compound applications” that are comprised of multiple interdependent Web services.

    In addition, we will explore the case study of Sempra Energy, a Fortune 500 Utility business that worked through the challenges of instituting an effective Identity Management solution for their SOA.
