(If you're looking for my blog, it's here)  

Thanks to the rise of web services, digital identity for the enterprise has evolved dramatically over the last few years. What was a well-scoped technology (the Microsoft Active DirectoryIdentity Web domain and forest), handled by a few IT professionals, has exploded in all directions. Identity is now critical to not only corporate users and workstations, but individual corporate applications, mobile consumer devices, SaaS applications…even internet-connected "things".

The evolving enterprise identity architecture is a hybrid environment, comprised of three major components. First, on-premises identity and access management systems such as Active Directory are ubiquitous and will be around for a long time. Next, recent cloud-based identity-as-a-service (IDaaS) offerings such as Azure Active Directory, Okta, PingOne, OneLogin, and Centrify provide the cloud-based component. Finally, an identity bridge joins these two worlds together in a (hopefully) seamless manner.


My goal at Enterprise Identity is to provide you with clear guidance on the hybrid identity world. My blog covers what's going on in the IDaaS identity world - especially documenting the rise of Azure Active Directory - and anything else that catches my attention.
