Microsoft Innovates in the Identity Arena

Over the last couple of years, when acquaintances have moaned that Microsoft is primarily a copycat and not an innovator, I have pointed to the work of Kim Cameron as a primary counterexample. There are others.

The products of Cameron's innovation have been threefold.

  • Two seminal papers:
  • A truly open Microsoft Identity Architecture, which is giving rise to a set of Microsoft Identity products and toolkits that span the gamut from a browser through the Windows desktop, to on-premise Windows Servers and on-premise third-party systems, to the "Cloud." I will write about these in subsequent postings.
  • The Microsoft Open Specification Promise, which is an approach pioneered by Cameron, to render certain Microsoft specifications, whose adoption benefits the wider community, truly open. This replaces Microsoft's previous licensing approach, which was a major roadblock (real or imagined) to adoption (see Sender ID, for example).

About Ferris Research

Ferris Research studies messaging, and the control of electronic information. More specifically, we help IT staff evaluate and implement products and services that:

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs
  • Reduce the dangers of information leaks

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

We've been in business since 1990--longer than any other analyst firm in our field:

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
