We are heading down to the Netherlands next month and again in November for some really exciting events. First, we'll be at the Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam and then at IDentity.Next in the Hague.
The 12th annual Broadband World Forum is taking place from the 16th to 18th of October, and will have hundreds of speakers from various telco providers and other industry experts discussing topics such as cloud computing, mobile computing, M2M, and others. From these keynotes and presentations, attendees will learn more about how Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) can use the cloud to open up new business opportunities and use their existing infrastructure to capture new markets. This is especially interesting to us as it is not possible without a strategic focus on digital identity. Cloud computing will be in the spotlight on the first two days during the co-located Broadband Cloud Summit. This part of the convention will undoubtedly include many good thoughts on how service providers can innovatively use the cloud to develop better business strategies and launch new products. As official bloggers for the event, we'll certainly keep you posted.
If you're attending or are in the area, drop us a line, so we can be sure to connect. Also, our friends, UnboundID, will be exhibiting there, so be sure to stop by their booth and say hi.
Just before Thanksgiving, we'll jet back down to the Hague for the IDentity.Next unconference. We're looking forward to joining James Varga of miiCard, David Birch of Consult Hyperion, and many other friends to talk about the future of digital identity. I will be presenting on use cases for System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM), an emerging provisioning standard that I've been working on w/ UnboundID, Salesforce.com, Ping Identity, and others since its inception. In my talk, I'll elaborate on the scenarios and use cases for the protocol which I touched on in my introductory SCIM presentation at the Cloud Identity Summit in July.
If you are going to be at the conference, which is November 20th and 21st, or will be near the Hague at that time, be sure to shoot us a note, so we can hook up. Too busy baking Thanksgiving pies? Come on. Identity is sweeter than all that, and you can jet home the day before. To see just how sweet identity is, have a look at this video :-)
See you all in the Netherlands this fall!
