Ask Not What Identity Can Do for the Cloud, But What Cloud Can Do for
Nishant Kaushik – Chief Architect, Identropy
It is now well established that identity is core to the success and security of cloud computing. But how can the power of the cloud transform the way we consume, manage and even think about identity? Thanks to cloud computing, the world is getting more interconnected, instrumented and intelligent, and this will enable identity to create and deliver value in fundamentally new ways. This session will explore some of these new and innovative capabilities that enterprises and individuals will benefit from thanks to cloud-powered identity and identity management.
From Knowing the Customer Through Federation in the New World
George Fletcher – AOL
Businesses too often focus on "owning" the customer while the greatest value may actually be building a long-term customer relationship. If building a strong relationship is key, identity federation is critical. In this session, AOL’s George Fletcher provides technical insights into building customer value. The session will touch upon several aspects of this shift in thinking, including user experience implications, customer care and phone support, insecurity of owning the password, data aggregation and behavioral profiling and verified attributes.
