Tackle problems associated with identity silos to speed progress with SOA initiatives

 

Companies are implementing SOA because it abstracts disparate IT resources, creating the ability to reuse business services and deliver these services through a variety of methods, such as corporate portals.

However, there are several barriers to widespread SOA adoption, including the fact that a company will typically isolate its security, identity and policy information across an inconsistent range of identity silos.

Companies must tackle the problem of identity silos to make progress with their SOA initiatives. The problem can most effectively be resolved by federating identity information. Identity federation represents a critical component of any truly secure SOA infrastructure.
