I was talking with a Quest customer late last week about identity management. I started my questions with “What do you have for identity today” to get a level-set on where the customer was. The first comment they made was that they were a Sun identity management shop but they had just received their notice of the “terminal release” of the Sun IAM provisioning suite. Therefore, they were going to review options across-the-board.
It’s truly unfortunate to see this happen but the road is littered with great software companies that had crappy marketing - Banyan comes to mind as another.
So the official word is getting out. What are you hearing?
