It's been almost two years since Stuart Kwan of Microsoft presented the Identity Bus as the "End-game for successful identity systems". Some time later, the Identity Bus is a reality, and the first open source implementation is out. Enterprises are suffering from an exponential increase of demands in terms of interoperability, Internet-facing federation and the externalization of identity resources. Furthermore, in order for IT Directors to gain approval for projects during this economic downturn, they have to demonstrate an almost immediate return of investment. The current approach to achieving this level of scalability is based on a "flip of the switch" style migration of legacy identity applications and underlying infrastructure to identity standards and compliant "off-the-shelf" products. Unfortunately this approach has proven to be a recipe for never-ending identity management projects full of frustration, budget over-runs and in the end, failure. The good news is that the Identity Bus approach is here to help. It builds on the old wisdom of "think big -- start small -- grow big", to deliver a dollar value that is both concrete and practically immediate, in the form of significantly enhanced operational efficiency. Atricore provides a 100% open source Identity Bus solution that will seamlessly enable this staged approach into your organization. You will maximize your current investment in identity, while paving the way for new capabilities to be brought on board.
