jedi the idea of doing automated account life-cycle management and synchronization as a novell product was born about 10 years ago in the father’s head. years before dirxml 1.0 shipped as a consulting only release in 2000. long before provisioning and identity management became industry buzz words. a small team, led by the father, worked on a piece of software that one day would explode in the market with the highest revenue growth rate a novell product ever had before.

novell identity manager 3.0.1, the current flag ship release of novell’s identity management product offerings is the fruit of a brilliant vision, an ingenious and solid base architecture and the hard work of a team of some of the industry’s best developers.

the father left novell a couple of years ago and became a well-known and respected analyst in the identity management industry. today, he is returning. my words cannot express how happy i am to welcome him back here at novell. stay tuned…
