Rolls Royce It is always enjoyable to read advice from those in the trenches of Identity management implementation.  As a recent guest blogger on the Identigral blog,  Tom Ebner outlined and explained ten best practice rules he learned while living the “Identity Management Lifestyle:”

  • Rule #1. Understand the problem and the opportunity
  • Rule #2. Assess the quality of the identity data
  • Rule #3. Create a strategic technical vision
  • Rule #4. Get (and keep) an executive sponsor
  • Rule #5. Build a great team
  • Rule #6. Add great partners to your team
  • Rule #7. Create a strategic technical architecture
  • Rule #8. Deliver something valuable to the business
  • Rule #9. Manage your risk
  • Rule #10. Understand and communicate “What does success look like?”

Thanks, Tom, for excellent advice.  May your continued work in this lifestyle earn you the yacht and Rolls Royce your colleague talked about!

(You’ll have to read Tom’s article to catch the significance of that last statement.)
