I wonder if Jackson Shaw will acknowledge that the real reason identity management vendors aren't solving for this problem is that they believe that this should be a separate and distinct product and their customers are too stupid to know better.
I'm not sure if that's the reason or not, James. I had a long discussion after the session with Ant Allan and I asked him why he thought more identity management vendors were not involved in this corner of the identity business. After all, none of the usual suspects have products in this area: Sun, Microsoft, Novell. His answer was quick and short: There's not enough services revenue required for these products.
I'm not sure how true that is but I will report back to you on that. Quest Software has OEMed PassGo's privilege management products so once we have some more experience with them I'd be happy to share further.
