Sun Microsystems is a member of the EDS Agility Alliance, which is dedicated to leveraging innovative technologies from EDS Agility Alliance partners “to deliver on the promise of enabling the Agile Enterprise.”

While on the EDS campus last week, Eve Maler pointed out an article, entitled “Not Just a Spectator Sport – Identity Management in the Participation Age” in an EDS publication, Synnovation (page 80), written by Robin Wilton of Sun. Eve and Pat Patterson contributed to the article.

This excellent article gives an articulate overview of the need for standards-based Identity Management, and describes how standards-based identity federation will help the “Participation Age … become a global reality.”

Accessing the article on line is a bit awkward because you must first install the FlipViewer client, but the article is well-worth the read. By the way, a little picture of Pat Patterson is included in the article!

    Hi Mark – The kind people at EDS allowed me to link to a PDF from my blog entry.

    I agree that Robin Wilton’s article is well-written and helpful. I was able to download a PDF version, which I found much more accessible than the FlipViewer rendition, as follows: http://www.sun.com/software/products/identity/notjustaspectatorsport_id_mgmt_participation_age.pdf. Cheers
