Identity Bait and Switch?

Sean O’Neil pointed out this interesting (but slightly embarrassing for IBM) tidbit last week:

“Was utilizing the IBM public website to review information about the latest on TAM.

“Middle of the page is a link for “Analyst Report: Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning for 1H06“. After you pass through one screen warning you that the next screen is out of IBM’s control, you go to the Gartner site and see a Magic Quadrant report with IBM clearly in the upper right.

“But here the funny thing – its not the report you think. Its for Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management, 1H06, a category Sun does not have an entry for. If you weren’t paying attention, you would think IBM is the leader in Identity Management.

“If you look at the real Gartner report, you will see IBM up there. Well behind Sun. Oops!

The moral – always take what you learn on the Internet with a grain of salt. Even this blog. 🙂
