Patterns to Bring Enterprise and Social Identity to the Cloud

Details of K. Scott Morrison's upcoming session at 12th Cloud Expo / Cloud Expo New York [June 10-13, 2013]

One of the most compelling promises of the cloud is that you can pull out a credit card and be working in minutes. No purchase orders to fill out, no equipment to wait for on the loading dock. Just instant access to the resources you need, when you need them. But accessibility comes at a price, and an unintentional consequence may be that you create yet another orphaned identity silo. Enterprise IT has spent years consolidating its mishmash of directories, only to discover that cloud now threatens to turn back their hard-won victories.

In his session at 12th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo New York [10-13 June, 2013], K.Scott Morrison will be looking at strategies to incorporate identity into cloud applications. Enterprise identity or social login can both be a part of your go-to-cloud strategy, he will show, but according to Morrison you must plan for this upfront rather than try to retrofit identity and access control at a later date.

At his session Cloud Expo delegates will learn about:

  • The different identity challenges in SaaS, PaaS and IaaS
  • Social Sign On vs Enterprise Single Sign On (SSO)
  • The new role of OAuth, OpenID Connect, and SCIM
  • Do virtual private clouds make the problem go away?
  • Pros and cons of cloud-based identity services
  • How you can leverage existing technology to address a new problems
