A common observation from our new NetIQ Access Manager customers is that they implemented it because of access fatigue, resulting from all the complexity of delivering a diverse set of services while keeping them secure. It’s often complex because the who, where and what of access continue to go through dramatic changes while IT’s mindset…

If someone really needs to do something, they will find a way to do it. The wheel. Nails. The compass. Paper. The printing press. Light bulbs. Computers. The Internet. Running your own email server as the US Secretary of State. In the last 40 years, I don’t think there is a business person on the…

This is an update to my previous Cool Solution: Integrating Salesforce.com and NetIQ Access Manager using SAML2. If you are new to SAML2 and federation, you may still find my first article useful as I endeavored to explain each concept as each configuration step is described.

I describe some of those here and also add some extra tips along the way.
