Spring and Summer conference schedule

May 4, 2011

It seems that this time of year the conference circuit begins to intensify before taking a break for summer vacations. Unfortunately I am not able to join the identerati at IIW this week, but here is the schedule for the rest of spring and summer:

European Identity Conference: Located in beautiful Munich, this promises to be another excellent event. Of particular intrigue is the fact that Craig Burton will be joining KuppingerCole as an analyst – very exciting news! In addition to Axiomatics sharing an exhibit floor booth with Ping Identity, I will be participating in the following sessions

Glue Conference: This is one of Eric Norlin’s creations and promises to be an interesting and informative event – particularly for you developers out there. A new program was introduced this year where Alcatel-Lucent has funded “demo pods” in the exhibitor space for interesting startup vendors. So, a big thank you to Alcatel-Lucent and the selection committee for picking Axiomatics as a demo pod participant.

Cloud Identity Summit: 2011 is the second year for the Cloud Identity Summit, hosted by Ping Identity.  Just give a quick look at the agenda and speaker lineup and I expect you will be registering immediately. Plus, Andre has lined up 15 workshops on various cloud and identity topics… 15 workshops, are you kidding me? What conference gives you that kind of learning opportunity? I am pleased to be giving The Essential XACML Primer workshop again this year – please come out to Keystone, CO for this amazing event!

Gartner Catalyst Conference: Axiomatics will have a hospitality suite for the first time at Catalyst this year. For those of you familiar with the Catalyst format, hospitality suites are unlike exhibit spaces at any other conference. They are fun, themed based settings where you can enjoy yourself while mingling with other attendees – and learn a little about vendor offerings. Please join us at Catalyst and look for a very unusual and fun giveaway in the Axiomatics suite.


Concordia hosts Authorization Standards Workshop

July 9, 2010

The Concordia Discussion Group is planning another workshop at Burton Catalyst North America, continuing a trend of providing timely and informative events. I have had the pleasure of participating in the past and will provide an update on what is new in XACML 3.0 this time around. XACML 3.0 is nearing ever closer to formal standardization – and contains several useful enhancements that are important for leading edge as well as legacy application environments.

Information on the workshop can be found here. Admission is free – you just need to register with Dervla O’Reilly to attend. Hope to see you there!

XACML workshops in San Francisco and Wash DC

February 19, 2010

Please join us in San Francisco or Washington DC for an XACML workshop.

“This is a two day XACML introduction course, including hands-on training. It will be provided by leading XACML experts with in-depth experience from some of the world’s largest XACML deployment projects. Based on their attendee experience, there will be a mix between high-level aspects and technical details. We cover best practices and discuss how you avoid common pitfalls in the deployment of an Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) solution. However, we also ensure you get a thorough understanding of the XACML request/response and policy languages. You will create and debug your own XACML policies and run access requests against them to verify that you get the response you expect.”

San Francisco, March 9-10

Washington DC, March 16-17

*** ALERT: These workshops have been rescheduled – dates TBD! ***
