The Carrier Grade Cloud

Upcoming Cloud Identity Talk At TMForum Management World

I’ll be delivering a presentation at TMForum Management World on Wednesday, May 25, 2001 in Dublin, Ireland. My talk is the second presentation in the Carrier Grade Cloud: Secure, Robust and Billable session. I’m scheduled to speak between 5pm and 5:30, which makes it a perfect way to end the day before retiring to a fine Irish pub. This talk suffers from the rather prosaic title Implementing Identity and Access Control and Management in the Cloud, but the actual content is great, and I promise to deliver a very entertaining show. This is actually a new talk, and I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to rehearse  last weekend for the Western Canadian Engineering Students’ Society Team (WESST), who met at Simon Fraser University. Students can be a surprisingly tough crowd, but we all had a good time and I was able to work out some of the bugs in the flow. I’m sure it will play well in Dublin.

I hope you can join me next week at TMForum. We can all sneak out afterward for a pint of the Guinness.
