What better way to kick off my external IBM blog than to share with you some details of the presentation I intend to give at IBM Pulse in Las Vegas in early February. The presentation is titled Heterogeneous Identity and Access Management for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Integration with Microsoft SharePoint has been a topic of growing interest among our customers, and I'm excited about the chance to update people on the solutions we have available now, and the even newer things that are being explored, planned, discussed, implemented.
This presentation will take a holistic approach to providing business-driven security to Microsoft SharePoint environments using Tivoli Security products including TAMeb, TIM, TFIM and TSPM. The presenter will draw on his experiences to share solution patterns and best practices for integrating Tivoli's identity and access management products with the Microsoft SharePoint family of products. Architectural decisions will be described for how to choose between the various options for providing authentication, single sign-on, authorization, and user provisioning for SharePoint environments. Deployment examples from customers will be shared.
What I'd hope attendees get from the presentation is:
- Patterns for providing integrating Microsoft Office SharePoint Server with Tivoli's hetergeneous identity and access management solutions
- Decision guides for choosing between the available integration approaches, including solutions with TSPM, TIM, TAM, and TFIM
- An understanding of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server security mechanisms and interfaces
What I hope to get from delivering the presentation is copious feedback from customers and business partners on how they perceive the suitability of some of the solutions I will present (and demo!) as well as where they still see gaps that we must close. What we can't cover during my scheduled session can be discussed at one of the hospitality functions throughout the week.
I hope to see you there, but if you can't make it and have an interest in the topic, let me know and we can setup another time to discuss.
