More than a year ago we have published the first version of a book about midPoint. It was our Christmas present to midPoint community. Although the book is not finished yet, we have decided to publish it anyway. The book follows the same evolutionary approach as midPoint development does. It is improving its incremental steps. And now it is time for the next step. Therefore we have published new version of the book with a brand new chapter. […]
Our names are Igor Farinič and Radovan Semančík. Although you might have noticed our names you are probably not aware that we are the founders of Evolveum. Evolveum is not based on venture capital investments and therefore the control of the company is firmly in our hands. And now we would like to very clearly express our commitment to the open source approach. Evolveum was, is and always will be an open source company. […]
Last week there was a five-day MidPoint IDM Customization and Deployment 1 training in Bratislava. As always, discussing real-life challenges was inspiring for the students as well as for Evolveum and we hope it helped to transfer the knowledge in both ways – to learn midPoint, and to make it even better. Here’s a few pictures capturing Read more about MidPoint IDM Customization and Deployment 1 training report[…]
Yet another year is over. 2016 was an incredibly busy year for midPoint. Lots of new midPoint deployments and projects. But most importantly the midPoint itself has significantly evolved. MidPoint is firmly based in the identity governance now. First half of 2016 produced midPoint 3.4 “Heisenberg”. Heisenberg includes a lot of new features. But one Read more about midPoint in 2016[…]
Identity management is both art and science. It may look completely deterministic. But too often there are cases that cannot be completely automated and encoded by rules. Sometimes there are cases that nobody expected. Good identity management system should be able to handle even those situations. […]
At present, companies go for moving their infrastructure to the clouds, which became synonyms for cost efficiency. Instead of using public cloud, why not to create your own exactly according to your needs? OpenStack is one of the options there for you. By deploying identity management system (midpoint) in different companies I learnt people have different Read more about Infrastructure Provisioning in context of organization[…]
There are just few days left till the new year starts, therefore we would like to thank you all for your support!
The LDAP conference was held in Edinburgh this year. And it was fascinating.
It was my first time that I have visited Scotland. Despite the infamous weather conditions it was a very pleasant experience. Edinburgh is a really impressive city. And Scotland has much to offer in a form of food and drinks that pretty much compensate the weather.
It was also my first time at LDAPcon. And now I pity that I’ve missed the previous conferences. I have decided that I will not repeat that mistake ever again. The conference size is just right: enough people to make it interesting and not too many to make it a crowded place. There were LDAP hardcore topics, engineering topics, standards talks and even an excursion to digital humanities and a violin performance. Overall it was a very interesting mix.
