SAML Presentation from MWLug

Andy Pedisich  August 24 2015 11:14:36 AM
We should have the presentation available on the blog later today.



We’re going to MWLug 2015 in August

Andy Pedisich  July 24 2015 11:52:24 AM
I am very pleased to be going to Atlanta again.  Last time I was there it was to take some IBM training on the iSeries.

This time, we'll be doing one of Rob's favorite security topics, SA101: AD + SAML + Kerberos + IBM Notes and Domino = SSO!  This topic is unbelievably useful especially since there are a lot of enterprises that are trying to figure out how to piece together the some kind of single sign on process for cloud implementations.  Almost every cloud migration we've done in the last year was preceded by either a major re-working of an existing SSO technology or a replacement of existing SSO technology by something completely different.

Also I've found that putting together SSO can be one of the most cantankerous and fussy processes to work with.  And the more applications there are for SSO to work with, the more moving parts there are.

This conference will be a really nice opportunity to see people I don't get to see very often, share stories and socialize in general.

There will be over 40 sessions.  The sessions and speaker list are impressive.  And they are still taking registrations for the conference, which is from August 19th to the 21st.  Visit www.mwlug.com for details.  There are still inexpensive flights available.

Hope to see you there!

Worst Practies for Migrating to the Cloud

There are lots of best practices for taking your organization to the cloud, but equally important is knowing how to overcome common technical and project management roadblocks that are sure to derail your migration. Join Rob Axlerod and Andy Pedisich for an end-to-end look at the cloud migration practice and real-world advice to sidestep common pitfalls associated with moving to the cloud.

Register for this webcast for an in-depth look at worst practices like:

  • Imprecisely defining your population, leading to exponentially more work
  • Letting the technical aspects of the project undermine what really matters to the users
  • Believing your users will be working the way the vendor showed you they would in a rehearsed demo
  • Getting so excited about what the new environment can do that you don't take the time to identify functionality that the users will be losing
  • Migrating users faster than your support team can answer calls
  • Not thinking rationally about why you want to retire old systems
