Matt's back! Matt is an Identity Management consultant who had the pleasure of working with me at MaXware. (oops - should I have said that the other way around?) Matt has since went into the consulting world and MaXware has since been sold to SAP. SAP has a short white paper describing their SAP NetWeaver Identity Management capabilities. Matt is now focusing on providing Identity Management services to SAP customers. That sounds like a good place to be. If you're an SAP customer or an SAP consultancy looking for expertise in the old MaXware identity stack, you might want to introduce yourself to Mr. Pollicove and start reading his blog for interesting info on SAP identity issues (no pressure Matt). You can also look back in my archives (most of 2006) for more info and interesting uses of SAP's metadirectory, virtual directory and provisioning technologies.
I've spoken to at least two IdM consultancies who are considering building an SAP practice. I think it makes a lot of sense. If you're in this space or building an SAP identity practice, feel free to leave a comment here and let us know about it.
