Category: Identity for SaaS

DIDW 2008 Slides

Here are the slides from our DIDW presentation on ‘Identity enabling Web Services‘.The use cases revolving around browser-SSO are getting a lot more clear and straightforward. And hence the discussions around ‘API/Web Services’ access seems like the next logical step. Enterprises are slowly but steadily moving towards the ‘Service Oriented Architecture’. And more companies are entering the Consumer and/or SaaS space storing user’s data in the cloud; which brings the implicit requirement of enabling access to the data via an API.

Ping Identity acquires Sxip Access

Today Ping announced the acquisition of Sxip Access business from Sxip. Chuck sent me the following picture on how he likes his coffee even more. Okay….so he didn’t exactly said that. Nor do I know if he is drinking coffee or vodka. However, I do believe that Identity for SaaS is an area that’s ready for prime time and I expect it getting a lot of traction this year. Hence I’m happy with the addition of Sxip Access to our portfolio.
