“Significant problems we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” – Albert Einstein

We are meeting with one of Sun’s large Identity Management partners today, discussing some innovative ways to deploy Sun’s Identity Management products. A recent email from one of the key participants in today’s workshop included this Albert Einstein quotation.

Albert probably didn’t give much thought to Identity Management, but his challenge to elevate our level of thought to meet new problems certainly applies to our industry. Identity systems must accommodate business models which we weren’t even considering a few years ago. Issues such as leveraged Identity services, contextual Identities, Identity auditing, global federation, and Identity-enabled business process integration certainly weren’t in the forefront of Identity Management thought until recently. Now these very real issues and real-world business models demand that we expand our collective minds to deliver solutions that work in new ways to solve new things.

It is an exciting world to be in.
