FIM News: the Microsoft Hybrid identity management (#FIM2010)

Today Andreas Kjellman presented an updated FIM roadmap on the FIM Team User group.
Register and keep an eye on http://thefimteam.com/fim-team-user-group/, as the recording will be published shortly.

Also just a few days ago the new Hybrid Identity website went live (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/solutions/identity-management.aspx).

The updated website contains the Hybrid Identity White Paper (http://aka.ms/hybrididentitywp)

Microsoft’s approach to identity spans on-premises and the cloud, creating a single user identity for authentication and authorization to all resources, regardless of location.
Also check the Hybrid Identity Datasheet (http://aka.ms/hybrididentityds)

There is a new product “AADSync” to make onboarding to AAD and Office 365 for multi-forest a lot easier. It will also support advanced DirSync scenarios. It is building on FIM2010R2 and DirSync.

The preview is available on Connect. (http://connect.microsoft.com/directory).

Documentation can be found at: http://www.aadsync.com/

There will be more information later in the year about Preview programs and deeper technical information.

There is more news to come, just keep an eye on the Server & Cloud Blog (http://blogs.technet.com/b/server-cloud/)

Also note that the new AADSync tool is referred as Microsoft Azure Active Directory Sync Services (AADSync), as Windows Azure is rebranded to Microsoft Azure
