In today’s Network Computing event, Sun Microsystems unveiled a “Systems Approach to Identity-Enable and Simplify Management of All Data.”

A key component of this strategy is that Identity is built-in: “Via Sun Java System Identity Manager software, Sun provides the industry’s first complete user provisioning and identity data synchronization solution to help manage identity profiles and permissions throughout the entire identity lifecycle, helping to reduce storage costs, strengthening compliance and making data more valuable as it can be made available securely to more users. Sun Java System Access Manager is also integrated into the Sun StorageTek Enterprise Storage Manager portfolio to ease access and improve data integrity.”

Mark Canepa, Sun’s executive vice president, Data Management Group stated, “Traditional approaches to storage are not enough for enterprise customers to compete. Sun is setting a course to change the way customers and the industry look at data, from building-in identity management and security to enabling a world in which self-aware applications can discover data wherever it is in its lifecycle.”

I liked the quote from Bob Massengill, Manager of Technical Services, Wake Forest Baptist University Medical Center: “Sun’s data management expertise, complete portfolio of storage and systems products and identity management leadership provided us with the end-to-end, secure and easy to manage storage environment our business operations require.”

Identity-centric, end-to-end solutions to big, real-life problems. That’s what I really enjoy about being at Sun in 2006.
