Sun in Gartner’s Leader’s Quadrant – Again

It was heartening to learn last week and see the announcement today, that Sun is in the leader’s quadrant for User Provisioning for the second straight year. In fact, Sun leads all competitors in “ability to execute,” which is were the rubber meets the road for Identity Management projects.

Back in April, a colleague posed the question, “Is the Sun Setting on IdM?”, suggesting that Sun’s leadership in this market was fading away. I think today’s announcement is evidence to the contrary. While several people who joined Sun from Waveset have indeed left for other adventures, I am heartened by the emergence of new, solid folks who are in the saddle going the right direction.

Stay tuned for more!

    The Gartner report mentioned that Sun "…also has a strategic commitment to open source, with open-source versions of its user-provisioning software…".
    I was wondering if you knew if this is this true? Is it out there and where can I get it? On the horizon?

    The strategic commitment is clear for all Sun software to be open-sourced, but I don’t know the timing for the Identity Manager source code to be "opened."

    In the mean time, you can download and work with the product at no charge through Sun’s "Open Access" policy here: http://www.sun.com/download/index.jsp?cat=Identity%20Management&tab=3&subcat=Identity%20Manager
