I’m an IBM alumnus and know well that they have some very talented people, but you have to wonder if the powers that be will ever “get” the SMB market. Robert McMillan at InfoWorld:
IBM plans to ship a new version of its Tivoli Identity Manager software designed for small to medium-sized businesses.
Tivoli Identity Manager Express will be a slimmed-down version of the product that can be used by a maximum of 5,000 users, said Joe Anthony, a Tivoli program director with IBM.
Identity Manager is typically used by very large companies to manage user names and passwords and audit user activity. The Express version will have less customization features than its enterprise counterpart, but it will also be easier to install and manage, Anthony said. “It’s a single DVD. It installs on a single server in less than two hours.”
